Top 12 Job Websites in Dubai

Dubai Jobs

Want to work in Dubai? Or simply want to have a glimpse of the types of job opportunities in the UAE? Check out these hot job websites.

1. Bayt

Perhaps Bayt won’t claim what it can’t do. This jobsite’s tagline is: “The Middle East’s # 1 job site.” Bayt isn’t just present in Dubai, though. It also covers job offers in the entire MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region.

2. Gulf talent

This website used to feature only UAE jobs. Now, it lets you search work opportunities in the entire MENA region as well as other counties – including Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, and more. Site visitors can search jobs at Gulf Talent by country, city, role, seniority, and industry.

I can attest that Gulf talent has strict headhunters. Two of the new hires in our company (a pharmaceutical company) were recruited through this job site. Both of them proved to be really good candidates. Expect high compensation yet fierce competition when applying through this site.

3. Nadia

With huge salaries offered to job-seekers, Nadia never slipped my memory. Little do job surfers know, Nadia is not just a part of daily Gulf newspapers Appointment page, but also an active job site itself. It has a downside though: most offers are for Arabic-speaking job-hunters.

Nadia features jobs in three emirates: Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah. It also features a special section called “New Jobs Today.” For locals, they can go straight to the category “Jobs for UAE Nationals.”

4. Dubizzle

Dubizzle is sort of a mixed bag. Here you can find properties, mobile phones, and cars on sale. Along with these, you can also find a Jobs category.

It seems to be the most popular website among Filipino job hunters I’ve met in Dubai. Varied job offers are available here. However, compensation packages tend to be lower than average. Popular job categories are Accounting, Automotive, Beauty, Construction, Customer Service, IT, and Medical & Healthcare.

5. Monster Gulf

I have an account at Monster Gulf, so does my co-worker who was recruited through this website. She was surprised when Monster Gulf’s headhunter called her for a job interview when her CV was posted two years ago. So, even if you haven’t had any luck finding a job on their listing, register here and upload your resume to improve your luck of landing your dream job.

Searching for work on this site is made simple. You only have to choose from Contract Jobs, Walk-In Jobs, and Fresher Jobs. You can also search by skill, company, or job title. While you’re at it, you can browse their free articles full of career advice and tips.

6. Naukri Gulf

Remember, if employers ask for a fee during the hiring process, walk away. Scratch that, run away. It’s a fraud. Yet, it won’t hurt if you post and spread your CV around job sites.

7. Get That

The online version of Gulf Newspaper’s job section. I’ve used this site a lot while I was looking for any job to get me an employment and a residence visa. I got at least one call for an interview every day, then. The key is to ask directly about the salary so you can weed out the cheapskates.

8. Career Jet AE

Does it look familiar? I’ve frequently consulted before, I just came to know it has its AE version,too. Worth checking.

9. Khaleej Times

Save a penny by checking out Khaleej Times Appointment section online. Whether skilled, technical or professional jobs, this website has something for you.

10. Aktaboot

A site with job posts for people looking for work in Gulf countries and Saudi Arabia. Majority of job roles posted here are in Education & Training.

11. Indeed 

Indeed has a UAE version. To date, it has aggregated around 28,584 jobs across industries. Searching here is easy.  Type what job or company you’re looking for and then which city or emirate you wish to work at.

12. Career Jet

As an employment search engine, job seekers can find as many as 60,000 jobs in the UAE at Career Jet. Type a job query and a relevant result might pop out. It lets you see new offers, save jobs you’re interested in or send job listings to yourself or others by email.

‘hope you found each of these websites helpful, or at least insightful. Just make sure to read through the job offers carefully before applying.

(I don’t intend to lure you into working abroad. If you love your present job, it’s best to keep it.)

P.S. Since publishing this post in 2011, I’ve received comments from nice people suggesting job sites, so I’ve added them here.

    is jobsindubai genuine or fraud? becoz its want activation with a huge amount. i want to work in dubai , i am fresher software engineer, which site is better for me?

    Hi Sameer, I must say jobsindubai must be fake; I did a thorough research on it. DO NOT pay the amount 92 CAD. Do you know it is illegal for any recruitment service in UAE to ask for fees from the employee. I am surprised it is listed here, alongside genuine sites like Bayt; the author ought to do more research on it.

  8. Hi, Voldy. I appreciate my readers’ intelligence. Thanks for raising that point.

    Hello, Sameer. When a recruitment agency asks for a fee, I always refuse to pay and consider them a fraud.

  9. hi, Issa i just want to know through which site i can get job by staying at home , by just applying online. i mean to say , i don’t want to go UAE as a visitor for job. kindly guide me.

  21. GulfJobSeeker consultancy are cheaters. Once you visit them they ask for money to be paid before for assisting in job search. They demand to give your original certificates. Please job hunters don’t fall into trap of these type of consultancies.

  22. MEP Job Gulf portal provide the industry with a qualified talent pool, by bringing in MEP Professionals and trained personnel on one platform and combining volume with quality. Therefore, it is the perfect, trusted and an exclusive online source for all your employment needs within the MEP sector.
