The Al-Futtaim Group will participate in the Ru’ya Careers UAE, hosted at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 19 – 21 September. The company shared that this highlights its dedication to Emiratisation, an initiative by the UAE Government to boost the employment of UAE nationals within the private sector.
The company is set to introduce hundreds of job roles, specifically targeting UAE nationals, spanning sectors including retail, automotive, and real estate. It noted that Emiratis seeking “growth-centric opportunities” are encouraged to discover roles that match their ambitions and directly apply to the Group’s diverse departments.
The Al-Futtaim Group also shared that it will offer an expedited interview process for prospective hires, which it said could possibly lead to immediate job offers.
Mira Omar Al Futtaim, Chairperson of the Al-Futtaim Group Emiratisation Council, stated: “Al-Futtaim Group is proud to play a major role in nurturing and upskilling young local talents in the UAE’s labour market. Striving to attract and develop national talents aspiring to work in the private sector, we offer necessary and meaningful opportunities to unlock their potential”.
She added: “At our pavilion will have dedicated teams to assist job seekers, address inquiries, and provide details about the diverse roles available. We aim to guide candidates in charting successful career paths within Al-Futtaim Group.”
The company said that 2023 Ru’ya Careers UAE is “key” in achieving the UAE’s Emiratisation objectives and noted that it “remains steadfast” in supporting government-led Emirati talent integration initiatives in both public and private sectors, strengthened by strategic programmes, particularly those endorsed by the Emirati Talent Competitiveness Council (NAFIS).
Further, it said that the exhibition “serves as a unique bridge” connecting corporate UAE with Emirati talent, “fostering mutual growth, and presenting a dynamic environment where young Emiratis can gather insights, engage in discussions with HR experts, and align their career goals with market trends.”
At the 2023 Ru’ya Careers UAE, visitors will be able to attend panel discussions, live presentations, hands-on workshops, and direct meetings with potential employers.
