Background:The terms "career success" and "career satisfaction" are used interchangeably in both historical and contemporary literature (CS). A growing body of theoretical and empirical research has provided a solid understanding of CS and its importance among employees and for businesses.

Objectives: The goal of this study is to investigate the relationship between leadership, motivation, innovative work behaviour (IWB), and career satisfaction among UAE government employees. To achieve the study's goal, a self-administered questionnaire was used to collect data from various personnel working for government institutions in the UAE region.

Methods: To examine the respondents' profile, the specified questionnaire covers four demographic dynamics, such as gender, age, qualification, and work experience. Using Smart-PLS, a total of 290 responders were collected and analysed for both measurement and structural models.

Results: The study's findings indicate that leadership, motivation, and innovative work behaviour have a significant and beneficial impact on the career satisfaction of government employees in the UAE. According to the study restrictions, this research is based on a sample of government employees working in the UAE's government sector, limiting the generalizability of the results. Future research should analyse both public and private sector enterprises functioning in various industries in the UAE.

Conclusions: Finally, this study adds to the current body of knowledge about trends in job satisfaction, particularly in the public sector.
