Arabtec offers thousands of jobs to regional youth
Dubai, February 3, 2014
Arabtec Holding, a leading engineering and construction group of companies, has launched a campaign to recruit thousands of youth in the region.
The recruitment campaign, targeting over 10,000 jobseekers, will cover the UAE initially and then the GCC and later other Middle East and North Africa states.
The drive will kick start from the UAE, and will be targeting ambitious UAE youth who are eager to contribute to their country’s development by joining Arabtec’s various teams and at the same time gain invaluable experience from the unique mix of international expertise involved in Arabtec’s projects, said a statement.
The campaign, through intensive advertisement on the local media, coincides with a phenomenal growth of Arabtec business, the biggest in its history; its continued geographical expansion and a diversification drive into new higher-margin sectors such as oil and gas, power, and infrastructure.
In tandem with that growth, Arabtec’s workforce has grown to unprecedented levels, with some 3,000 new recruits in 2013 alone, the company said.
Hasan Abdullah Ismaik, managing director and CEO of Arabtec, said: “Emiratisation has always been at the core of our corporate strategy. We perceive it as a duty, a commitment, and part of our responsibility towards this great nation. We have developed a fully-fledged strategy geared at attracting local talents to our fast growing business. Paramount attention is given to developing attractive packages for UAE Nationals and enabling them to gain real time experience from our international teams.”
Reiterating his invitation to UAE youth, Ismaik said: “We have a wide range of openings, from junior positions all the way to senior executive management. Our offices are open and we welcome all those who are eager and ambitious to build their future with us.”
The next phase of the campaign will include Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman. It will eventually expand to Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Palestine, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco and other Arab countries where Arabtec has business.
Ismaik said: “It’s one of our strategic objectives to contribute to the socio-economic development of the Arab World and create thousands of jobs for the national youth in these countries, enabling them to participate in building their homelands.” – TradeArabia News Service
