Set against this impressive backdrop of numbers, we take a look at what Expo2020 means for Dubai and some of the career opportunities available as a result of this mega-expo.

Key stats

200 participating nations, multilateral organisations, corporate and educational institutions
25 million visitors in six months
70% of visitors will be from outside the UAE
$23.4bn increase in Dubai’s GDP
10% bigger than Milan expo
300,000 jobs likely to be created
30,000 volunteer opportunities
4.38sq kilometre site

The property and real estate job sector will see a huge uplift thanks to Expo 2020. After a few years on the downward curve this sector is due a revival as a result of the half-year long exhibition and thankfully many of the opportunities available are tipped to be permanent and open to graduates.

With dh11m of contracts due to be awarded in 2017, employment in the construction sector looks set to see a significant boost.

One of the key things organisers of the event are keen to promote is the legacy that the expo will leave in terms of business development and networking opportunities that have already begun to materialise and continue to do so long after the event has finished.

Set to highlight the region’s expertise in construction and engineering, The Tower, Dubai’s tallest tower is due to be completed ahead of Expo 2020 at a cost of Dh3.67 billion.

At PSR International we’ve seen a steady increase in vacancies throughout the region, we specialise in civil engineering & infrastructure jobs as well as property and real estate opportunities and are always interested to hear from mid-senior level construction professionals looking to take their career to the next level.

Keep track of the amazing developments and projects taking place at Expo 2020.
