Charterhouse UAE 2020 Salary Guide

This Charterhouse UAE 2020 Salary Guide is a collative narrative of our market insight. As always, Charterhouse is committed to providing an honest and transparent opinion, whilst also working to support salary levels through our representation of candidates across our sectors of expertise.

Moving forward into 2020, as our market analysis highlights, there are signs for renewed optimism across sectors of the UAE and regional economy. From the clients, with whom we interact daily, their sentiment is of steady growth and a hiring trend which will continue to be selective and gradual throughout 2020. 


Charterhouse continues to remain at the forefront of the regional recruitment market, matching the supply and demand conditions to ensure candidate and client expectations are met. There is no doubt that these determining factors vary on a regular basis, in a market where talent pools are transient and demand conditions can demonstrate seasonal and sector fluctuations.

In overall terms, a trend across this 2020 guide, appears to be a level of continued plateaus for many compensation packages. There is no doubt, that the UAE increasingly, is about people’s desire to view their residency in the longer and fixed term. For some, this means that overall financial reward, isn’t always the overriding deciding factor behind being here. Whilst the tax-free environment remains highly appealing, the “new age” of packages and benefits appears to be well entrenched now in to the mind-set of the workforce.

Pockets of strong growth within areas of green technology, fin-tech and professional services may be the main variances during 2020; whereby salaries show a strong upside through increasing demand and a limited supply of talent available.
