Travel & Tourism Industry
Here is a listing of major job categories in the travel & tourism industry that we recruit for:
Passport, Visa Staff
Travel & tourism industry is growing at an enormous pace throughout the Gulf region. Many factors have contributed to its growth – large scale industrialization, growth of construction industry, oil & gas sector and so on. Due to massive growth in the above sectors people from different parts of the world have migrated to various Gulf countries resulting into huge demand in the travel sector. Ultimately, the growth of travel sector has created space for more & more job opportunities within the industry. Added to this, the demand is also triggered by the upcoming mega-projects like World Expo 2020 in Dubai and FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar (Source Press Trust of India | Dubai April 8, 2015). Huge demand is seen for drivers, chauffeur’s, ticketing clerks / executives, tour operators, passport & visa specialists, travel office administration staff, accounting & finance staff and so on across other job functions within the travel industry in the Gulf region.
Dubai alone welcomed a record 10 million plus visitors in 2012, according to the recent statistics released by the Department of Commerce and Tourism Marketing (DTCM). Abu Dhabi, meanwhile, received 2.3 million visitors last year and targets to attract 2.5 million visitors this year, according to the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi). The report further projects that the average growth of the travel and tourism sector’s contribution to the UAE’s gross domestic product (GDP) will be over 8.1 per cent annually during the period from 2011 to 2020. And that the demand for jobs in the tourism sector will grow by 5.7 per cent per year until 2020.
The local training institutes are unable to meet the growing demand of the travel industry and the assistance of overseas recruitment agents is often being sought to full fill the gap. The biggest challenge faced by travel & tourism companies in the Gulf region is delay in supply of travel staff as per the stipulated time limits resulting into huge loss of business, revenue & reputation of the businesses. Most agents do not have a ready database of trained candidates for the travel industry as their major focus is construction and Oil gas sector. It is only after when the demand is raised by these companies, the agents start looking for trained & experienced personnel from the travel & tourism industry. This creates huge time lag between demand & supply resulting into disturbances within the industry.
