Adnec plans to boost Emirati staff
Abu Dhabi, January 22, 2011
Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (Adnec), a strategic global venue development and management company, said it aims to increase its Emiratisation level to 38 per cent in 2011.
The Adnec announcement comes on the eve of Tawdheef, a major careers fair being co-organised by Abu Dhabi Tawteen Council and Turret Media in the UAE capital.
Underscoring its commitment to Emiratization, Adnec said it will once again be a major exhibitor at Tawdheef which will run from January 25 to 27 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
Humaid Al Dhaheri, Adnec’s director of Finance & HR, said at Tawdheef, the company will be looking to reassert its credentials as ‘an employer of choice’ for UAE’s young talent.
'We currently employ UAE nationals in 36 per cent of all positions within the company, but our aim is for this to increase to 38 per cent by the end of 2011,” said Al Dhaheri.
Adnec, he pointed out, offers one of the most attractive benefit packages in the market as well as unique opportunities for Emiratis, such as an innovative secondment program where selected nationals get to work at Excel London, Adnec’s UK venue, for six months on the job management training and work experience in a different culture and environment.
'Tawdheef offers an unparalleled opportunity for Emirati jobseekers to meet some of Abu Dhabi’s leading companies, such as Adnec, and develop their careers in Abu Dhabi.'
'Building on the success of last year’s event which attracted over 20,000 jobseekers, we have had to considerably increase the size of the show for the fifth edition,' said Chris Fountain, director of Tawdheef and managing director of Turret Media.
We are delighted the success of the event has clearly been met with approval from the Emirate’s leading employers.” “Tawdheef is the region’s most important and influential recruitment event. For an event of such caliber, Adnec serves as a perfect venue with its state-of-the-art design and facilities.” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
