Abu Dhabi Part-time Job; For many years in Abu Dhabi, the role of part-time jobs (or the lack thereof) has been the most discussed and debated subject of conversation. Due to the country’s transient community – with people settling in and out of the country every year – it is difficult to build reliable, long term B2B and B2C business relationships. So there is a consistent need for short-term, quick fixes addressing immediate issues at hand. Thus, there has been this sense of opportunity-lost amongst the country’s part-time job seekers.
Moreover, when it comes to homeowners and tenants, the majority of the residents are renting their property and need to ensure that the upkeep meets their landlords’ requirements. In Abu Dhabi, most properties are managed by the Abu Dhabi Commercial Properties LLC (ADCP) – a subsidiary fully owned by Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank. Therefore, with ADCP in the picture, there is increased scrutiny of leased properties and maintenance cannot be subpar if tenants want their security deposit to be refunded at the end of the lease. This means Abu Dhabi residents are particularly diligent in maintaining their homes and there is a constant demand for home improvement tasks that need to be assigned on an average resident’s budget.

Limitations of the Part-time industry:
Usually, their budget does not allow the average tenant to hire an entire home maintenance company’s team to repair or restore the property they are renting. Single contractors and professionals offering individual services are much more in demand due to the reduced charges they are willing to work for. This is because individual technicians do not invest the same level of capital for business set up and thus need much lesser returns on profit-making their prices more practical and an economic home improvement option.
However, this also means that the quality of work delivered does not reflect the best effort and leaves the customer unsatisfied. As part-time contracts did not have sufficient compliance guidelines in place until very recently, the level of trust customers afforded these individuals would also dwindle in reaction to their reputation. Part-time jobs were considered a last resort and consumers would prefer saving up for more “reliable” and “standardized” options – leaving part-timers in utter dismay over the diminishing flow of opportunities.
Part-time Jobs Galore aka “Rafeeg” is here to the rescue!

Part-time jobs on the Weekends ( Friday & Saturday ) :
Many part-time job seekers are in search of gigs on the weekends, especially Friday, as they have an off from their full-time commitment and can afford to spend extra hours on a side task.
As a Rafeeg technician, you get access to market insights and trends. What our analytics team witnesses are a surge in part-time jobs over the weekend. This comes as no surprise as most Abu Dhabi residents work full-time as well and they are only available at home on the weekends to oversee these tasks.

Under Rafeeg’s wing, you get legal representation as a technician and are also marketed for your skills.

Part-time jobs at the Mall in Abu Dhabi:
A popular venue amongst part-time job seekers is the malls. Given Abu Dhabi’s scorching sun and desert climate, the mall is a convenient indoor option for both consumers and service providers, with constant foot traffic throughout the day.

Part-Time Jobs for HouseWives:
Housewives looking for part-time jobs have the unique selling point of being excellent multitaskers. They also have flexible timings working from the comfort of their home and they are obviously connected to a reliable internet connection. This makes housewives ideal to be hired for part-time jobs that are not client-facing but require a short notice for the task at hand.
Housewives are also particularly skilled at content creation on home improvement topics due to hands-on experience with maintaining their own homes in the region, staying on a practical & reliable budget. Relevant knowledge of hidden saving hacks and coupon deals is another strong suit of housewives in Abu Dhabi.
As a result, the Rafeeg Research & Development team is currently working on creating a framework for housewives to be hired for part-time jobs in Abu Dhabi. This extension to the platform of Rafeeg will assist women, working from home, to acquire part-time work based on their assessment during the application process. Virtually working as a part of the Rafeeg administrative team, you will be able to further your career while simultaneously fulfilling your duties at home.

Part-time jobs in Musaffah:
As the industrial hub of Abu Dhabi, Musaffah is the busiest location for part-time work acquired through a registered Rafeeg Technician. This is because all labor-intensive jobs including carpentry, upholstery, plumbing, aluminum works, glassworks and many forms of repair work are all offered in Musaffah. Not only is this the most competitive space for such jobs, but many workshops also lose out on the customers in the herd.
As a Rafeeg Technician, not only do you get notified about part-time gigs within the area but also from areas not accessible in Musaffah – meaning customers who are not able to drive down to Musaffah use Rafeeg to hire technicians in their own location. Hence, you are able to take your Musaffah-based work experience to other locations in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi under Rafeeg. This not only increases your coverage radius, but it also makes sure your trip is worthwhile to a legit part-time job – through the correspondence with the customer on the Rafeeg app.
If you are a skilled worker in Musaffah, kindly register your interest with us for further details.
