Abu Dhabi jobs portal partners with council
Abu Dhabi, October 1, 2013
Jobs Abu Dhabi portal (jobs.abudhabi.ae) has announced its collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Tawteen Council (ADTC) in a move to boost Emiratisation.
As a result of the collaboration, job seekers registered on ADTC website will be able to view job postings on Jobs Abu Dhabi portal as well as submit their job application without having to register separately on the Jobs Abu Dhabi portal.
ADTC will get notified in case an application made for a job posted on Jobs Abu Dhabi gets viewed by an interested employer.
Speaking at the fifth annual Emiratisation Forum being held in the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi Systems and Information Centre (Adsic) project manager Dr Ahmed Al Hashimi said: “Leveraging on the success of Jobs Abu Dhabi portal, Adsic has collaborated with ADTC to boost the Emiratisation efforts of the government.”
“The partnership allows Emirati job seekers registered on tawteencouncil.ae to be connected with employers registered on jobs.abudhabi.ae. The partnership is an extension of our virtual platform that not only helps employers source qualified Emirati candidates but also serves local talent to apply for positions in the UAE and abroad.”
Jobs Abu Dhabi portal is Abu Dhabi’s leading job search engine and portal that can be used by jobseekers around the world. Launched in 2008 by Adsic, it has over 400,000 registered local, regional and global candidates with more than 870 entities from the Emirate’s government and private organisations.
Highlighting the initiatives made towards encouraging adoption of e-government services by Emiratis, Al Hashimi mentioned the e-citizen project implemented by Jobs Abu Dhabi.
E-citizen is an online education course launched in collaboration with Adsic and other public and private entities, aimed towards training Abu Dhabi’s citizens on computer applications and the use of the latest technology, including Internet and e-services.
Al Hashimi said that the focus for Jobs Abu Dhabi portal in 2013 is mainly to launch initiatives to enhance services for government entities. Another key initiative in the pipeline is the new mobile app for Jobs Abu Dhabi users. – TradeArabia News Service
