Getting a government job

While the government is making every effort to invest in jobs for citizens, expatriates from all over the world are welcomed to Dubai to take part in the new digital economy. A tax-free salary with quick career progression for candidates with the right qualifications and experience are the norm in Dubai. Employment opportunities are available in the private, semi-government and government sector. You will also need to be familiar with the UAE labour laws and your rights as an employee.

In November 2006, the UAE Federal Government passed the UAE Disability Act (Federal Law No.29/2006) to protect the rights of people with disabilities and special needs. This law stipulates that UAE nationals with special needs have the same right to work and occupy public positions. Towards fulfilling these rights, the Community and Development Authority in Dubai has introduced the El Kayt (Arabic for 'lifeboat') programme for the employment of people with disabilities, by empowering and integrating with jobs in leading institutions in the public and private sectors.

Dubai Government actively encourages nationals and skilled expatriates to work in the government sector. Its centralized online job portal lists vacancies for all government departments, so that you can apply online. The National Human Resource Development and Employment Authority (TANMIA) and the Emirates Nationals Development Programme (ENDP) focus on Emiratization policies for nationals in both the government and the private sector. In 2006, the Human Resources Management Law for Dubai government employees was published which was subsequently amended in June 2010. The law relates to employment, attendance, overtime, probation, gratuity and allowances, employee appraisal and promotions and annual leave among other HR related articles.
