Dubai-based Mashreq Bank said it has reached a major Emiratisation milestone through 100 per cent recruitment of Emirati branch managers across its branch network in the country.
This is in line with its Emiratisation strategy to provide career placements for UAE National staff, said a statement from the leading UAE lender.
The move demonstrates the bank’s continuous efforts towards Emiratisation initiatives and career growth opportunities within the organization, it added.
Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair congratulated all branch managers, encouraging them to reflect the bank’s customer centricity in all interactions with customers.
He emphasized on the contribution they constitute towards implementing the bank’s strategy to attract Emirati workforce.
Farhad Irani, the head of Retail Banking Group at Mashreq attended the ceremony along with senior executives.

This is indeed a reflection of Mashreq’s commitment to continue achieving outstanding results in nationalizing managerial positions across the bank.”
On the same lines, the bank promoted 28 Emirati nationals to mid-managerial positions within the branch network. This included providing adequate training on the job to ensure they are equipped with necessary skills for the new positions.
Shaker Zainal, the head of Distribution commented, “As a UAE national bank, it is important to have Emiratis in our front line offices. Branches constitute a significant image for banks and at Mashreq we ensure we have the best caliber of skilled individuals to interact and engage with customers offering them tailor-made financial solutions.”
