Emal to pursue Emiratisation at Fujairah fair
Abu Dhabi, May 13, 2013
Emirates Aluminium (Emal), a leading UAE-based Aluminium smelter, will continue its Emiratisation drive to fill vacancies for its rapidly developing Phase II expansion at the upcoming Fujairah Career Fair.
Taking place from May 14 to 16 at Fujairah, the fair will see Emal offering job opportunities for disciplines across multiple fields – targeting technical disciplines and primarily offering opportunities to scholarship students, as well as promoting vacancies for summer training and internship programmes.
Non-supervisory positions are available for Emirati males holding high school or Institutes of Applied Technology (IAT) certificates and are eligible to apply for the Pre-Employment Courses (PEC) that trains candidates for non-supervisory positions at Emal.
Lasting between six and 24 months, the PEC courses will prepare trainees for jobs as utility operators, technicians and assistant technicians across all Emal departments, including casthouse, carbon, maintenance and power.
In 2012, Emal successfully launched and implemented six training programs for Emiratis to qualify and assign them to work in different fields in operation. However, during the first quarter of 2013, two additional training programs have been added and five more in realization phase.
The first quarter of 2013 has also seen early success in preparing UAE nationals for their roles in Emal. 22 employees out of 90 planned for supervisory roles have completed their training; seven out of 17 employees to be assigned for executive roles have concluded their programs, in addition to 42 out of 138 of our employees designated for technical roles.
At the supervisory level, positions are available for fresh university graduates in the field of mechanical, electrical and chemical engineering to join Emal’s graduate training programme for 15 - 18 months and then, graduating to hold prominent positions at Emal.
Saeed Fadhel Al Mazrooei, president and CEO of Emal said: “We are proud of the role we play in supporting the diversification of the economy. Emirati talent is a central feature of how we have come so far, so quickly and a highly qualified and skilled Emirati workforce is essential for our future success.
“We passionately believe in effective and continuous development, retention and high growth of our human capital and will continue to provide multiple opportunities to potential employees to fill the positions we have available. We ensure that Emal employees receive world class opportunities to advance in their careers through on and off the job training, as we advance towards becoming one of the world’s largest single site aluminium smelters.”
Abdelhakeem Almushtaghil, vice president, Human Relations and Organization Effectiveness, Emal, said: “As part of our vision to be the employer of the choice in the UAE, we attract and retain the very best talent. The Emal Falah Competency Development Program was established to develop Emiratis capabilities and draw their career path at all levels in Emal.
“We are committed to investing in our employees by providing innovative training and development solutions designed to meet individual and our organization needs.” – TradeArabia News Service
