UNB, UAE Academy ink recruitment deal
Abu Dhabi, June 23, 2009
Union National Bank (UNB) has signed an emiratization employer program agreement with the UAE Academy, a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ADCCI).
The agreement is in line with its core philosophy ‘The Bank that cares’ and its focus on achieving Emiratization objectives within all its group companies, said a UNB statement.
Under the terms of the agreement, UNB will have access to a database of qualified UAE national graduates which the bank can rely on for recruitment.
The bank will work in conjunction with the UAE Academy to process and screen applications and conduct interviews with UAE graduates.
The bank will also provide information on employee benefits as well as career progression within the bank. The UAE Academy will be updated by UNB with progress made against Emiratization goals.
The partnership agreement was signed by Abdulla Alrashedi SVP and head of resources and emiratisation division from UNB and Mohammed Rashed Al Hameli, director general of ADCCI at a ceremony held at chamber premises.
UNB joins 24 other companies and institutions that have also made similar commitments to the Employer Partner Program (Ibdaa), that serves as a link between young Emirati graduates entering the job market and employers who wish to add substantial value to their organisations by harnessing the available talent pool of UAE nationals.
Al Hameli said the agreement holds out great potential to boost the employment prospects of Ibdaa graduates within the banking sector.
'We look forward to the mutual benefits that this agreement will provide both UAE Academy and UNB,' he noted.
Alrashedi said, 'UNB places Emiratization at the very heart of our growth agenda and is implementing a clearly defined plan to recruit and leverage the presence of UAE talent at all levels and across all departments.'
'This initiative with the UAE Academy will help contribute to the Emiratization process in the banking sector by ensuring national talent continues to be nurtured and supported,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
