Top 10 construction jobs in the Middle East: 19-25 May, 2018
This week's top jobs from the Middle East include quantity surveying roles with Thomas & Adamson and Faithful+Gould, in addition to a digital expert vacancy at CH2M
The upcoming summer months, as well as the ongoing Holy Month of Ramadan, appear to hold numerous career advancement opportunities for the Middle East's construction professionals.
For instance, earlier this month, Marcus Taylor, managing partner of Taylor Sterling Associates, said that recruiters must use the Holy Month of Ramadan to plan their resources for the year to follow.
Meanwhile, job-hunters could use the upcoming months to focus on self-development programmes, and this is particularly significant, as Construction Week's Skills Gap Survey 2018 has found that 72% of the region's construction professionals believe that their colleagues fulfil to complete their tasks efficiently.
