The bank will offer dozens of employment opportunities through walk-in interviews at its stand in order to attract the largest pool of UAE national job seekers, said a statement from Adib.
Tirad Mahmoud, CEO of ADIB, said: “We added many talented UAE nationals to our workforce last year, as part of the growth and expansion strategy pursued since 2008. We have achieved one of the highest Emiratisation ratios in the UAE banking sector and aim to increase our ratio during next year as we plan to expand our branch network and develop operations.”
In addition to its participation as platinum sponsor, Adib earlier announced that it will participate in all career fairs in the UAE this year.
The bank will also organise training courses in cooperation with a large number of educational institutions in order to help talented UAE nationals develop their skills.
Waheeb Al Khazraji, Adib’s head of HR, said: "Through our participation in Tawdheef 2012, we aim to attract the largest possible number of UAE national employees and fill the many positions available within the bank. We also aim to provide a number of training programs for talented UAE nationals who wish to join the Islamic banking sector."
