That’s according to the latest report from recruitment firm Robert Walters Middle East, anyway. Its latest Jobs Index said that the number of advertisements for executive job vacancies in Saudi Arabia grew by 41% over the past quarter.

These vacancies were in the accountancy and finance, banking and financial services, legal, and sales and marketing fields.

Overall, though, Saudi Arabia has seen its number of advertised jobs increase by 111% over the past year.

According to Robert Walters, the biggest growth has been seen in the sales and marketing field, which has experienced year-on-year vacancy growth of 143%. The smallest growth was seen by jobs related to accountancy and finance, but was still pretty healthy at 38%.

“What a difference a year makes. The first half of 2018 has seen significant increases in placements for Robert Walters compared to the same period last year,” said Jason Grundy, country head at Robert Walters Middle East.

“The summer so far in 2018 has been the busiest I have ever experienced. Unfortunately, I can’t simply announce a sustained period of continuous growth for the region, but things are certainly more positive in a world of contradictions.”

Grundy added that he expects to report a continued growth trajectory by the end of the year.
