Dubai’s Emirates Is Hiring 500 IT Professionals For Multiple Roles
The Emirates Group is offering a range of attractive perks, including travel benefits, exclusive discounts on flights and hotels stays, as well as a tax-free salary.
We’re in the middle of a global talent shortage. By 2030, more than 85 million jobs are expected to be unfilled as a result, which is roughly equivalent to the population of Germany. The IT sector is affected particularly hard, so companies interested in hiring skilled IT professionals have to cast wide nets.
The Emirates Group, the Dubai-based international aviation holding company, is now looking for 500 IT professionals from around the world for jobs in the following areas: Agile Delivery, Cybersecurity, DevOps, Digital Workplace, Hybrid Cloud, Innovation, Modern Architecture, Service Management, Software Engineering, and Technical Product Management.
“Technology is evolving, and applications are widely used across all the Emirates Group, which includes the world’s largest international airline Emirates, and one of the world’s largest combined air services providers, dnata” writes the Emirates Group on its website. “The Group is experiencing a strong recovery and demand across its businesses and is offering a range of career opportunities for skilled IT professionals to work with technologies at world-leading innovative partners in a dynamic and evolving environment”.
Besides the opportunity to move to a vibrant cosmopolitan city that’s home to over 200 nationalities, more than 80 percent of which are foreign residents, the Emirates Group is offering a range of attractive perks, including travel benefits, exclusive discounts on flights and hotels stays, as well as a tax-free salary.

The announcement the Emirates Group’s intention to recruit 500 IT professionals comes only around a month after the holding company unveiled its plans to recruit 6,000 additional operational staff to boost its workforce as travel demand rebounds. So far, the Emirates Group has restored 90 percent of its pre-pandemic passenger network.
“We are seeing strong signs of pent-up demand wherever restrictions have eased. Emirates is nimbly matching up flight services and identifying opportunities to grow our footprint” said Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Emirates Chairman and Chief Executive.
Hopefully, the Emirates Group will be able to keep all new hires long-term as the travel industry gradually recovers from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
