UAE, April 10, 2017

UAE-based Ducab, a leading manufacturer of high-quality cables and cabling products, is conducting spot interviews and offering career opportunities to suitable candidates at the ongoing Careers UAE 2017, in Dubai, UAE.

The event opened yesterday (April 9) and will conclude tomorrow (April 11) at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

Riding on the success of the company’s Emiratisation strategy which has resulted in UAE Nationals making up 70 per cent of the senior management, Ducab looks to further strengthen its numbers with appropriate applicants, said a statement from the company.

In line with the Dubai 2021 Plan and the seven-year National Agenda, Ducab aims to support the growth and long term sustainability of UAE’s industrial sector by investing in young emerging local talent, it said.

The company will engage with Emirati talent at the event to further the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to promote and empower UAE nationals in all economic sectors.

Khaled Nasser Lootah, board member and chairman of Emiratisation Committee at Ducab, said: “The bold vision set forth by our leadership to diversify our economy puts the spotlight on the non-oil sectors like industry and manufacturing.”

“Building a skilled workforce through the nurturing of local talent plays a key role in ensuring the growth of these sectors. Ducab is committed to contribute significantly to this vision by providing comprehensive training and development opportunities and continually innovating to create an appealing and dynamic work environment,” he said.

At its booth at the event, which is located in Hall 6, Ducab aims to highlight the unique career opportunities and programmes offered by the company. Visitors will also have a chance to learn more about the inspiring work environment the company provides to its employees as well as more details of its scholarship programmes, and graduate training programmes for engineers and non-engineers, said a statement.

Mona Mohamed Fekri, general manager, human resources at Ducab, said: “We are delighted to be a part of this year's edition of the event, a key platform to meet and communicate with UAE national talent and youth.”

“As a wholly owned UAE company, our people strategy has a strong focus on Emiratisation which has proven to be successful with Emiratis making up majority of senior management at Ducab. We continually strive to provide inspiring career opportunities for UAE youth to join us in the development and growth of the country's industrial sector, one of the most dynamic sectors in the world,” she added.

Ducab is committed to its joint initiatives with several leading universities and educational institutions in the region and continues to strengthening these partnerships through the recruitment of students from different disciplines. The company also hosts regular visits and open day activities throughout the year for students, it said.

Yousuf Al Shamali, a graduate of the Ducab Training Programme who currently works for the company, said: "The company’s training programme helped me develop my career through practical and hands on experiences. I look forward to achieving more and growing at a professional and personal level in order to contribute further to the success of the Ducab family.”

Sara Al Dashti, a graduate of Ducab's internship programme, who began her career with the company, said: “My participation in the practical training programme at Ducab has contributed tremendously to the development of my skills, my knowledge of the processes involved and the practical application of my academic studies.”

“With these experiences, I feel more confident at the beginning of my career and I have this learning experience to thank for that,” she said.

Ducab has successfully incorporated 26 different nationalities within the company's workforce, providing for a diverse cultural environment, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
