National Self-Employment Platform launched

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE), in co-operation and partnership with the Emirates Foundation (Youth) and the Federal Youth Authority, launched the ‘National Self-Employment Platform’ to enable skilled Emiratis older than 21 to provide services to government and private entities for money from the beginning of March.

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE), in co-operation and partnership with the Emirates Foundation (Youth) and the Federal Youth Authority, launched the ‘National Self-Employment Platform’ to enable skilled Emiratis older than 21 to provide services to government and private entities for money from the beginning of March.

The launch of the National Self-Employment Platform comes as part of a qualitative program implemented by the MOHRE as a first government interactive platform aimed at utilizing the skills of the national human resources for implementing public and private projects, Ahmed Al Nasser, Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation for the Development of National Human Resources, said.

The platform forms a connecting link between skilled Emiratis and government and private entities, through which these skills are displayed and connected with the projects of these entities, he added, noting that this would help in supporting Emiratis, particularly those who live away from the city and seek to find innovative and untraditional working methods to earn more money.

Al Nasser praised the efforts exerted by the Emirates Foundation (Youth), which is a national establishment concerned with improving the competencies of the youth and consolidating the social responsibility between the public and private sectors, to develop and provide technological support to the platform.

These efficient efforts come under the memorandum of understanding that was signed between the MOHRE and the foundation with the aim of strengthening co-operation for implementing the National Agenda programs related to preparing and implementing initiatives aimed at empowering Emiratis, particularly with regard to supporting innovative work initiatives and enhancing entrepreneurship and self-employment opportunities, he said.

Al Nasser called on Emiratis to register and take advantage of the platform, through which they would do an independent and flexible work and hence earn extra money in return for the services they provide.

Meanwhile, Ahmed Al Shamsi, Acting CEO of the Emirates Foundation, commended the co-operation with the MOHRE for launching the National Self-Employment Platform, which would bring the job opportunities of the Emirati youth to a new and completely different level in line with the developments of the modern era.

The platform prompts the youth to develop their skills and provide services to government and private entities, he added.

For his part, Saeed Al Nazari, Director General of the Federal Youth Authority, said many strategic goals are achieved through the platform, most notably the active partnership among all entities to enable young Emiratis to leverage their energies, capabilities and experiences and use their free time in a way that would benefit them.

Skilled Emiratis interested in providing services to government and private entities can register on the electronic platform www.aefreelancer.ae to get the necessary license from the MOHRE, which supervises the platform and provides the necessary support to the Emiratis registered in it including training and qualifying them, honing their skills and guiding them to make the most of the platform.

According to the work mechanism of the platform, the concerned entities will announce their required projects through the platform and the skilled Emiratis will submit their technical and financial offers. These entities will subsequently select one of those offers to complete the required project. Alternatively, these entities will entrust an Emirati registered in the platform to the task of carrying out the project exclusively, provided that payment will be made after the required service has been delivered to and approved by the concerned entity.

Emiratis can provide six major services to the entities. These include administrative and professional services such as human resources consultations; studies; project management, design and planning; customer service consultations; data entry and analysis services; event management and human resources training.

The services of the platform also include marketing services such as brand development, content marketing, mobile advertising and presentation development in addition to the consultation and management of social media content and advertising video clips.

The platform also offers design services such as designing websites, smart apps, advertising banners, business cards, stationery, packing, packaging, flyers, brochures, posters and invitations. Other services include graphic design, graphic illustrations, interior design, design of logos, photoshop services, design of flyers and design of social media posts.

Additionally, the platform enables Emiratis to provide translation and content writing and development services (Arabic and English) as well as montage, legal translation services, guideline development, text/scenario writing and translation.

The package of services provided by the platform also include digital services such as app development, electronic games, IT and network consultations, product management, product design and website development.

The services also comprise photography and montage, which include animation, digital editing (photos and video clips), photography and video as well as production, sound effect engineering and sound recording.
