Sales, Marketing and Support
A creative director earns between Dhs31,000 to Dhs42,000 per month, an in-house PR manager pockets almost the same – between Dhs30,000 to Dhs45,000 per month, while a personal assistant makes a monthly wage of between Dhs17,000 and Dhs20,000, based on experience.

Advertising and media are also hiring heavily, particularly in the digital sphere, the report added.
