Abu Dhabi, January 21, 2013
More than 2,000 jobs are expected to be on offer from 12 major oil and gas companies participating at an upcoming recruitment show in Abu Dhabi as they prepare to step up their Emiratisation drive.
The Tawdheef Recruitment Show takes place from January 29 to 31 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
The majority of the jobs will be offered by Abu Dhabi-based Al Mansoori Specialised Engineering, which has listed 1,000 jobs on the recruitment fair’s website, tawdheef.ae, across 75 positions, ranging from HSE Coordinators to Senior Engineers.
Al Mansoori has operations in more than 20 countries in the Mena region, and has aggressive expansion plans to grow its oil gas services, from slickline and directional drilling, well testing, manpower supply, inspections, technical and safety training, and equipment manufacturing, a statement said.
Abdalla Omar Rahuma, Corporate Human Capital manager at Al Mansoori, said: “In our strategic plan to address Emiratisation in the UAE and implement our existing recruitment policies, we are looking into hiring as many Emiratis as possible to support our business growth, and help the UAE government in the development of UAE nationals.”
“We expect to reach a wide pool of highly qualified and skilled Emirati candidates at Tawdheef. The show is very important for us to plan for our future manpower needs and achieve our strategic goals.”
