Adac sees big opportunities at recruitment show
Abu Dhabi, January 31, 2009
Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) said it will take part in the upcoming Abu Dhabi Recruitment Show 2009, as part of its efforts to boost emiratisation, with special focus on UAE nationals with special needs.
The ADAC pavilion at the show, which runs from February 3 to 5, has been designed to provide extensive information and an environment which meets the needs of UAE nationals searching for employment opportunities with major national institutions such as ADAC, said an official.
Sheikha Al Maskari, ADAC’s vice president of corporate affairs, said its participation is mainly aimed at attracting the national workforce and 'involve them in the progress and development of our many facilities and in the progress and expansion worth $6.8 billion which is currently underway at Abu Dhabi International Airport.'
“ADAC seeks to invest in human resources and particularly in our national resources, as we consider them an important investment for which we have great hopes,” Al Maskari noted.
She pointed out that the exhibition was good opportunity to meet university students and graduates to discuss employment opportunities available in ADAC and its subsidiaries.
'The plans aim to activate the role of UAE national employees in the aviation sector. This can be through offering an opportunity to develop their skills and provide them with qualifications and experience necessary to cope with the rapid changes occurring in the community and playing a key role in the development of the economy and developing society,' she added.
According to Al Maskari, the move was in line with the objectives of the federal government and its strategic plans.
Human resource managers involved in management, training and development will be available at the ADAC stand to interview candidates, answer any questions and discuss the opportunities available in ADAC.
Al Maskari asserted ADAC’s commitment to recruit, train and develop the skills of UAE Nationals with special needs.
'We are taking steps to ensure that our facilities are equipped with the necessary equipment to cater for the requirements of UAE nationals with special needs,” she said.
The airport company has prepared special forms for applications which will be distributed to at the exhibition. It will also provide comprehensive information about its activities and recruitment procedures and incentives and training courses available.
The exhibition’s focus on employment provides opportunities for companies to display the location of vacancies and employment available, she added.
The exhibitors include government institutions and quasi-governmental institutions, banks, building and construction companies, educational institutions and commercial and service companies and other companies interested in employing people.-TradeArabia News Service
