New Fujairah mall to create 1,200 jobs
Dubai, March 20, 2012
Fujairah City Centre, Dubai-based Majid Al Futtaim Properties’ sixth shopping mall in the UAE, will create more than 1,200 permanent jobs from retail positions to mall management.
The mall is being developed in joint partnership with the government-owned Fujairah Investment Establishment and will be opening its doors on April 4.
All of the mall’s customer services staff have been hired from the immediate community, creating a platform for the continued professional development of the Fujairah population.
Dedicated training for newly hired mall staff, including the marketing, operations and security staff is currently under way following Majid Al Futtaim Properties’ international standards of service across its regional malls.
Furthermore, the mall’s 105 retail outlets and the largest Carrefour hypermarket will provide long-term employment opportunities, benefiting the community, a statement said.
“Fujairah City Centre has received a strong and positive amount of support from the local community as interest in job opportunities and retail space from international brands has been overwhelming,” said Majed Al Fahim, senior mall manager for Fujairah City Centre.
“The long-term impact of the mall will benefit retail, tourism and commercial opportunities for Fujairah on the whole. In the countdown to opening, we are confident in its successful delivery and are excited to establish the mall as a landmark for the wider community.”
Residents will have a choice of international and local brands, offering a premium shopping and dining experience for shoppers who previously had to drive to other Emirates for these stores.
Popular and affordable fashion brands such as H&M, New Look, Aldo, Aeropostale, Splash and Max fashion are making their debut, as well as newer food and beverage concepts such as Pinkberry, Tim Horton’s, Just Falafel and Candelite. – TradeArabia News Service
