New Occupations List with Job Descriptions Introduced by the MOHRE
 

Dubai, UAE, December 27, 2018:  The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation has introduced job descriptions as part of a new occupational classification scheme. The scheme is used for new work permit applications in the mainland. It is now more challenging for employers to select a suitable job title that matches the foreign national’s responsibilities and educational qualifications.   


The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE) has introduced job descriptions as part of a new occupational classification scheme which is now used for new work permit applications in the mainland. 

New occupational classification scheme

The new occupational classification scheme is comprised of a list of 726 job titles in nine professional categories, including managerial positions, specialists and clerical support staff. Each designation belongs to one of five levels of professional skills that determine whether a degree certificate must be provided by a work permit applicant, or not. A brief job description and a unique code are attached to each designation on the list. 

The new scheme has been prepared in accordance with the International Standard Classification of Occupations. 

Affected work permit applications

According to the MOHRE, foreign nationals can only apply for a work permit with a job title from the new list. Foreign nationals holding employment residence permits with job titles that are not on the new list, will not need to revise their title to renew an employment contract.  

What This Means for Employers and Foreign Nationals

Considering that an old list consisted of over 3,000 positions, it is now more challenging for employers to select a suitable job title that matches the foreign national’s responsibilities and educational qualifications. As per the new list, most of the job titles must be accompanied by a degree certificate.
