The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation announced the nomination of 713 male and female citizens for appointment at 117 companies operating in the financial, banking, retail and tourism sectors, as well as 144 others signing job offers with the concerned companies. This took part during the four open recruitment days organized recently by the Ministry in Al Ain and Dubai in cooperation with its partners from the federal and local government agencies, which organize the work of these sectors within the framework of the second phase of the Qualitative Emiratisation Acceleration Initiative.

Saif Ahmed Al Suwaidi, Undersecretary for Human Resources Affairs, said that the “operations room”, which was formed by the Ministry within the framework of the open recruitment days methodology, is currently coordinating with the concerned companies to determine the procedure to be used to differentiate between male and female citizens, who have been included in the list of candidates for appointment in line with the policies of the human resources departments of these companies, in addition to following up on the procedures for signing the male and female citizens contracts who have received job offers”. He praised the active participation of these companies and their response to the Qualitative Emiratisation Acceleration Initiative in the targeted economic sectors.

Al-Suwaidi pointed out that “the four open recruitment days, one of which was organized in Al Ain and the other three in Dubai, witnessed a remarkable turnout from a big number of male and female citizens, which reached a total of one thousand and 587 job seekers, which confirms their serious quest for job opportunities”.

Al-Suwaidi explained that during the four open recruitment days, the companies offered 995 job opportunities in the financial, insurance, retail and tourism sectors.  3,720 job interviews were conducted with male and female citizens, most of whom were interviewed in order to enhance their career opportunities, by allowing them to learn about the nature of all these opportunities as well as allowing the participating companies to learn more about the capabilities of the participating job seekers”.

The Undersecretary for Human Resources at the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation, said that “610 male and female citizens from the total attendees were unable to pass the job interviews that were conducted for them during the four open recruitment days. He stressed that the “operations room” is currently coordinating with the concerned companies to find out why they did not pass interviews. This is done in order to communicate with male and female citizens, mentioned earlier, and invite them to participate in the "Tamkeen Program", which aims to train and qualify Emirati citizens who have not been able to pass job interviews and work to enable them to pass such interviews in the future and thus enhance their chances of getting a job.

He further stressed “The effectiveness and importance of the open days in enhancing employment opportunities for citizens and accelerating Emiratisation and direct employment, especially as the outputs of the four open recruitment days in Al Ain and Dubai indicate that about 59 percent of male and female citizens who were interviewed benefited from their participation, both in terms of receiving job offers or being candidates for appointment. While others who have not been able to pass these interviews have benefited from being acquainted with the available job opportunities and the requirements that will help them overcome subsequent job interviews, especially as they will be rehabilitated and trained through the "Tamkeen Program" referred to earlier”.

The Ministry is scheduled to organize with its partners on October 1 and 2, two open recruitment days in Umm Al Quwain as part of pursuing the Qualitative Emiratisation Initiative, which aims to provide 3500 job opportunities for Emirati male and female citizens with 1,000 jobs in the financial and banking sector and another 500 in the insurance sector, in addition to 2000 jobs in the retail and tourism sectors within 100 days.

It is worth mentioning that the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation manages open recruitment days in four stages, which include the registration of job seekers upon arrival to the open day location through a smart system that allows each job seeker to choose three career opportunities from the available vacancies. This is followed by the career guidance stage, which aims at educating the job seeker of the importance of the target sector and the jobs offered and to make sure that he/she is ready for the job interview. The final stage is designed for preparing the job seeker for the job interview.
