Thank you for reading the news about Data scientist is the UAE's fastest growing profession and now with the details

Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - Data scientist, full stack engineer, digital marketing specialist, cyber security specialist, and android developer are all listed among the top 10 emerging jobs in the UAE, with technology and technical specialists ranking as 14th and 15th most in-demand jobs, new data has shown.

LinkedIn's Emerging Jobs Report has revealed a boom in technology and digital-oriented professions in the UAE, which is no coincidence, considering the UAE government's strategies, such as the UAE Strategy for Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Smart 2021 Strategy, that have created jobs within new and emerging fields that will enable the UAE to realise its vision. The result, as the report indicates, is that 11 of the 15 top emerging jobs are within the digital and technology fields, which explains the growing value that businesses are placing on data to provide actionable insights and inform decisions as digital transformation continues across industries in the UAE.

Speaking on the findings of the UAE Emerging Jobs Report 2020, Ali Matar, head of LinkedIn MENA and EMEA Emerging Markets, said: "The findings of the report are a testament to the successful efforts of the UAE to shift its workforce towards digitisation and AI. With around four million members in the UAE, LinkedIn is uniquely positioned to outline the direction in which professional roles are moving in the country."

With this year's Emerging Jobs Report dominated by digital positions, many of the new skills fell under the categories of advanced and applied digital skills, involving highly technical expertise or - at least - significant technical understanding. However, the report also looks at emerging skills and reveals that the demand for soft skills is likely to increase as automation becomes more widespread. Skills like communication, creativity, and collaboration, which are impossible to automate, will become even more valuable for organizations in the future, and will remain integral to digital roles. Team management, negotiations, and creative skills were some of the unique skills for both digital and non-digital emerging jobs.

The report reveals that the top industries hiring digital talent include information technology and services. The emerging tech talent are also being hired across sectors from financial services, automotive, education, retail, and marketing.
