The Emirates Group has concluded its participation at the National Service Career Fair at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, recording more than 600 applications received during the three days of the event.
The Group’s participation in the sixth edition of the National Service Career Fair is part of its rigorous campaign to attract competent Emirati talent that will support its business acceleration and projected expansion.
More than 200 graduates visited the Emirates Group’s interactive stand on the first day alone to browse through the offered opportunities including the National Cadet Pilot Programme, Aircraft Maintenance Engineering License programme (AMEL) and Customer Service roles.
Cadet Pilot Programme joiners will receive the unique opportunity to train at the Emirates Flight Training Academy’s state-of-the-art facility for four years, before qualifying to fly for the largest international airline, Emirates.
High school graduates who have enrolled in AMEL will undergo theoretical and practical training at the Emirates Engineering Training College to receive their higher diploma in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering attested by Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) upon completion of the programme.
The new Customer Service professionals will also receive 12 months of on-job and classroom trainings upon joining, to help ease them into their roles amid accelerated global operations.
Over 3,000 Emiratis are currently employed in a variety of roles across the Emirates Group including pilots, engineers, IT professionals, data analysts and commercial managers. With more than 30% of Emiratis across the Group in leadership roles, the Group is also working towards generating more unique roles for UAE Nationals in emerging fields such as machine learning and artificial intelligence. – TradeArabia News Service
