Prominent government organisation, Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC), has hailed Careers UAE as a key date in their calendar and an important platform to meet skilled Emiratis to fulfil their Nationalisation goals.
Participating for the tenth consecutive year, ENOC attributes 70 out of their total 152 UAE Nationals hired throughout 2017 as a direct result of their participation in Careers UAE.
This year, ENOC has forecasted 150 vacancies to be offered onsite, which includes 100 positions available for manpower requirements, 20 from their graduate development programme and 30 from their technical training programme.
His Excellency Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO, ENOC, said: “Cultivating a strong calibre of qualified, well-trained and passionate employees is integral to the development of a knowledge-based economy which remains a key pillar of the UAE Vision 2021 National Agenda.”
“Having grown the proportion of locals in their workforce by 11 percent, ENOC Group’s high-level Emiratisation strategy aims to have half of the workforce made up of Emiratis by 2021.
“At ENOC, we are committed to supporting this vision by creating a generation of talent on par with international standards through our National Development Program which is dedicated to the career development of UAE Nationals through a number of initiatives and strategic partnerships in our efforts to develop a skilled workforce for the organisation’s growing needs.”
Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the event will educate visitors on how their skills and qualifications are best suited for different professions in the public and private sectors through three days of conferences, interviews and an insight into new employment opportunities.
