IT Job Salaries in Dubai

So what are your IT salary expectations?

Ahhhh. That difficult question your potential employer managed to ask before you got a chance to fire it back at them.

What do you say? Do you aim to high and potentially blow your chances of landing that perfect job? Or do you mutter something about "market value" or "a competitive salary that matches my experience and highly proficient technical skills".

It always pays to go into an interview with an idea of what the current UAE market salary levels are for your particular role.

A lot of the IT jobs advertised in the paper and online don't give an indication of the monthly salary. They usually say, "attractive or competitive salary plus benefits".

Benefits may include:

  • a return ticket home
  • medical and dental cover
  • accommodation
  • end of service gratuity payments

Charterhouse Recruitment have brought out a 2008 salary guide which should give you an idea of what you can expect by working in IT in Dubai.

An IT director/CIO could expect to earn between 55,000 - 70000+ dirhams per month.

An IT manager between 25,000 - 45,000 per month

Project Manager: 25,000 - 35,000 per month

IT Security (a CISSP qualified candidate) is looking at 19,000 - 27,000+

Oracle Database admin 13,000 - 22,000

Business Analyst: 18,000 - 27,000

Java Developer: 8000 - 15000

Network Engineer-Telecom: 20,000 - 30,000

Support Engineer: 10,000 - 15000

Helpdesk: 6000 - 13000

So there you have it. A run down of a few IT roles and their associated salary levels. Happy job hunting.

Everyone wants to earn more money, get a better job, increase their income. The economic climate may be bad but it's definitley still possible to achieve this in a job, especially with IT jobs. IT Training isn't necessarily the only answer. There are other ways to study and learn new technology to help you make the big money. Job opportunites will be there and reading the right ebooks will help.
