Job prospects for accounts receivable managers
The shortage of qualified accounting and finance talent means that experienced managers are likely to see good job prospects for the next twelve months.
The technology sector shows the most promise for new job opportunities, as the start-up boom continues to drive demand for experienced professionals with the ability to establish solid processes. We can expect to see similar demand in both telecommunications and aviation sectors.
Accounting and finance professionals with fluency in both Arabic and English are in high demand and have an advantage over other candidates when competing for open roles.
Hiring managers in the UAE are shifting their focus toward the softer side of hiring and are now putting more emphasis on candidates who are a good cultural fit and who possess soft skills which complement digitisation. Accounts receivable managers can increase their chances of securing a job role if they can demonstrate desirable soft skills such as analytical ability, communication skills and excellent change management abilities.
Accounts receivable manager salary opportunities
Salary opportunities for accounts receivable roles are tracking well, as some larger organisations are awarding salary increases for accounting and finance professionals.
For entry-level roles, the average accounts receivable salary in Dubai will typically start at US$68,000 in SME businesses. To increase entry-level earning potential, professionals may consider taking a role within a larger organisation, who offer an average salary of US$76,000.
Experienced professionals could earn up to US$107,000 at a smaller organisation or US$118,000 in larger organisations. In cases where start-ups and SMEs are struggling to match the salary offering of a larger competing organisation, professionals can expect a degree of flexibility with the benefits they’re offered. Flexible working (including compressed hours and flexible schedules) and training are the most common benefits on the table.
