Plan for real estate salary survey
Dubai, July 15, 2007
Macdonald & Company, a leading property recruitment specialist, plans to launch a salary survey for the real estate sector.
The first Middle East Salary Survey for the real estate industry will be launched at Cityscape Dubai 2007. The launch will follow the conclusion of a survey distributed to real estate professionals and companies across the region, in cooperation with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Cityscape Dubai.
This partnership will ensure industry-wide participation in the Survey and accurate, thorough results, the company said.
Cityscape Dubai will be held from October 16-18, 2007 at Dubai International Exhibition Centre.
Set to be a definitive reference in the Middle East property industry, the publication of the survey will look into remuneration and benefits in the property sector. Real estate professionals can fill out the survey form online by accessing the companies’ websites (www.macdonaldandcompany.ae and www.cityscape.ae ).
“Cityscape Dubai 2006 was extremely important for Macdonald and Company, as we successfully established our firm as the leading property recruitment specialist in the Middle East. The four-page Salary Guide we produced was a huge success, and the feedback we received encouraged us to go one step further with an in-depth Survey including compensation, bonuses, benefits and job satisfaction levels. The quality of the results this year will depend on active participation and we encourage property professionals across the region to go online and complete the 5 minute Survey” said William Buck, international director, Macdonald & Company.
Macdonald & Company is closely collaborating with Cityscape Dubai and the RICS in conducting the industry-wide survey, as well as the publication and launch. The partnership leverages Cityscape’s exhaustive database of real estate professionals and companies across the region. The results of the survey will also be published on Cityscape’s new online market intelligence service (CMIS) and the Cityscape Magazine.
“The Middle East Salary Survey will be the first-of-its-kind publication in the regional property industry and will make available unknown industry information. Realizing its importance, we are delighted that this will be launched at Cityscape Dubai and published exclusively in our new online market intelligence service (CMIS) and Cityscape Magazine”, said Rohan Marwaha, group director, Cityscape Dubai.
