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.

binance receives virtual assets license to operate in dubai

Global crypto exchange Binance has been granted a full operational license in Dubai, in a move that’s expected to accelerate digital asset adoption and strengthen the UAE’s regulatory landscape.

The virtual asset service provider license (VASP) was granted by the Dubai Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority (VARA) and will allow Binance to extend its current range of services to retail investors, the company announced yesterday.

The move by Dubai authorities will be critical to Binance’s strategy of growing its user base globally. The crypto exchange expects to pass the 200 million user mark “quite shortly”, according to Richard Teng, the company’s CEO.

Once that milestone is achieved, Binance will have around twice as many users as rival platform Coinbase. Meanwhile, Crypto.com, another popular exchange with 80 million users, received a Dubai VASP license last week.

“We’re seeing much greater institutional adoption and institutional money coming into this space [along with] much greater regulatory clarity and a lot more jurisdictions approving [digital asset] products that bring in new investor classes,” Binance’s Richard Tang explained, adding: “As of now, we stand at about 5% crypto adoption globally, but that will become much faster moving forward”.

Dubai and the UAE are extremely supportive of technologies like digital assets, and have already launched initiatives to boost adoption. The UAE has ambitious plans to become a world leader in the crypto economy of the future, with Dubai in particular being noteworthy for passing a new law to regulate virtual assets to support investors and exchanges.

“Global crypto regulation is currently showing diverging signs. Some developed countries have long suffered from crypto-related frauds and illegal exchanges. On the other hand, emerging nations like the UAE and Singapore have enacted crypto laws at faced pace,” said Vijay Valecha, chief investment officer of Dubai-based Century Financial.

As the UAE gears up to become one of the fastest-growing crypto capitals worldwide, investors and talent are flocking to places like Dubai. During 2023, the Emirates as a whole realized $204 million in capital gains from cryptocurrency investments, according to blockchain data analysts Chainalysis.
