Global firms recruit UAE nationals at Najah
Abu Dhabi, October 20, 2008
A number of world class organisations have come together at Najah, a major education, training and careers exhibition in Abu Dhabi, to recruit UAE nationals for private and public sector jobs.
The event is attracting a high number of graduates who are looking for jobs in finance, telecommunications, travel and more.
Barclays Bank, which took part in the inaugural Najah event in 2007, has returned this year to continue its graduate recruitment drive in the UAE.
Other international organisations such as RBS, HSBC, Standard Chartered and BNP Paribas, are also actively recruiting graduates and placing a particular emphasis on UAE nationals.
“We offer very competitive packages for our employees, with each one going through an extensive six month training programme to ensure they understand our commitment to our customers,” said Jamal Tahlak, vice president, area manager Abu Dhabi Consumer Banking, Royal Bank of Scotland.
The exhibition has played host to the launch of jobs.abudhabi.ae, Abu Dhabi’s new official job recruitment website.
Adnoc has also returned to the second edition of Najah to assist in their objective to reach 75 per cent of Emiratisation. “We are trying to reach out to engineers this year at Najah and find highly technical graduates,” said Shireen Al Romaithi, senior officer planning and follow-up, Adnoc.
Graduates and career professionals with one to two years experience have been able to make direct contact with HR managers from companies such as Etisalat, Etihad Airways, Abu Dhabi Investment House and UAE Air Force and Air Defence, all of which are on a heavy recruitment drive.-TradeArabia News Service
