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.
