DIFF to offer jobs for 2011 edition
Dubai, September 7, 2011
The Dubai International Film Festival, a major event on UAE’s cultural and social calendar, is offering temporary positions for the upcoming 2011 edition of the event in December.
The eighth edition of the Dubai International Film Festival will be held from December 7 to 14.
The festival’s annual Career Fair, which showcases an array of short-term vacancies across DIFF operations from front of stage to back office, will be held from 10am to 7pm on September 15 at the Knowledge Village Conference Centre.
The DIFF team will lead two presentations at 10am and 3pm for prospective applicants.
In previous years, more than 300 temporary staff have joined the Festival annually, in roles from registration to red carpet and hospitality to marketing.
“DIFF has always been a sought-after platform for enthusiastic and committed individuals to develop their careers, make a meaningful contribution to the UAE, and work on a prestigious global event at the same time,” said Mohammed AlHousani, head of Human Resources and Volunteers, DIFF.
“The annual Career Fair is a very popular interface between the public and the Festival teams, and we look forward to finding more outstanding team members there this year.”
Emirati national Hind Galadari, who served as a theatre captain last year, said: "The Dubai International Film Festival provided me with an insight into the different cultures and arts found in the carefully selected films and the diversity of people who also take part in DIFF, from staff members to film makers and audiences.”
“It is an honour to have such an event hosted in Dubai; it truly highlights one of the many successes this city has achieved in a very short number of years,” Galadari added. – TradeArabia News Service
