Emal plans to expand Emirati workforce
Abu Dhabi, January 27, 2011
Emirates Aluminium (Emal), a joint venture between Dubai Aluminium and Mubadala Development, plans to expand on its Emirati workforce with its third participation at Tawdheef 2011, a major recruitment show in Abu Dhabi.
Emal increased the number of Emiratis employed at the smelter by 43 per cent in 2010, bringing the total number of UAE nationals up to now represent 14 per cent of the total workforce.
“Our business strategy is committed to achieving the ambitious goals set out by the Abu Dhabi 2030 plan,” said Saeed Fadhel Al Mazrooei, president and CEO of Emal.
“To achieve this, we strive to consistently achieve excellence in every initiative we undertake. Every success, from reaching full production ahead of schedule, to supporting the community, to investing in the talented Emirati workforce of tomorrow, is a step forward towards Emal’s commitment to 2030,” he added.
One of the largest industrials projects outside the oil and gas industry, Emal recently announced the commencement of full production of its Phase One smelter, and engages heavily in creating opportunities for the UAE. With a focus on ensuring it meets the full production targets set, Emal will use Tawdheef to recruit qualified mechanical, electrical and chemical engineers.
Multiple initiatives are currently underway at the company; including a raft of pre-employment courses, graduate trainee programmes, as well as a second intake of scholarship submissions for young Emiratis.
Tawdheef 2011, which opened on January 25, is closing today (January 27) at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. – TradeArabia News Service
