Dubal employs 30 UAE nationals
Dubai, March 24, 2013
Dubai Aluminium (Dubal), a major state-owned aluminium smelter, recently appointed 30 UAE nationals as part of its nationalization strategy.
The new recruits, all of whom were reached through the corporation’s participation in open days, career fairs and Tanmia activities held at various educational institutes, have joined Dubal’s Pre-employment Course (“PEC”) Smelter, a six-month training programme that provides trainees with the theoretical knowledge and practical on-the-job experience required to fulfil assigned tasks in the Smelter Operations area.
Sultan Al Sabri, vice president HR&OE, gave the welcome address to the group that was welcomed to Dubal during a dedicated event.
Al Sabri highlighted Dubal’s UAE roots and the corporation’s adoption of best practice in all aspects of the business – including a defined career path for employees’ development.
He emphasised Dubal’s strong focus on safety and elaborated on the success of the corporation’s Nationalization Strategy.
“Approximately 68 per cent of our senior management comprises UAE Nationals,” Al Sabri said. “Our goal is to continually increase the number of UAE Nationals employed at Dubal.”
Mohamed Ali Al Owais, manager Organization Development and Al Sabri jointly presented certificates to the UAE National trainees at Dubal who recently completed their training programmes.
Dubal’s PEC Smelter programme is one of several such training initiatives within the corporation’s nationalization strategy. Other options include PEC Technical, PEC Desalination, PEC Power and PEC Apprentice programmes.
“Dubal welcomes applications for any of these programmes,” says Al Sabri. “Interested individuals may apply directly through our Recruitment department, or online via the Dubal website – dubal.ae.” – TradeArabia News Service
