EGA looks to hire local talent at career fairs

DUBAI, March 13, 2018

Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) will offer positions available across technical, commercial and corporate disciplines during its participation at the National Service Career Fair in Abu Dhabi and Careers UAE in Dubai, said a report.

EGA employs over 7,000 people in the UAE, including almost 1,200 UAE nationals. The company finished 2017 with a 37.6 per cent Emiratisation rate – its highest ever level rates of any major industrial company– and is targeting an Emiratisation rate of 40 per cent by 2020, reported state news agency Wam.

The National Service Career Fair is an opportunity to find talented people who have completed their national service. EGA has already recruited over 70 national service veterans.

As a company operating in a heavy industry, the EGA is a particularly significant employer of professionals in science, technology, engineering and mathematics related disciplines.

Over 1,540 people work in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (Stem) disciplines at EGA, including some 500 UAE Nationals.

EGA is planning to recruit up to 50 Stem experts through career fairs this year with positions available for experienced hires, graduate trainees, and young people looking to join its craft apprenticeship programmes, added the report.
