‘UAE Jobs Bank’ is innovative gateway to empower Emiratis in government and private sectors: Al Hamli
H.E. Nasser Bin Thani Al Hamli, Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation and Chairman of the Tawteen Committee, has valued the launch by His Highness Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, of the ‘UAE Jobs Bank’ in line with the Cabinet’s decision obligating all government establishments and the private sector to give recruitment priority to Emiratis in 160 targeted professions.
“The ‘UAE Jobs Bank’ has been established as a result of HH Sheikh Mansour’s support, directives and ongoing follow-up of the executive steps taken by the government agencies concerned with the Emiratisation file, which work in accordance with the principle of integrated roles and strategic partnership and hence thrive to achieve the Emiratisation targets in such a manner that actually translates the wise leadership’s vision and meets Emiratis’ aspirations”, he said.
Al Hamli believed that the ‘UAE Jobs Bank’ is an innovative gateway for directly connecting Emiratis with government and semi-government agencies and the private sector, adding that this would empower jobseekers and guide them to the job opportunities available in these agencies and would also enable the targeted agencies to attract as highly qualified Emiratis as required.
The ‘UAE Jobs Bank’ would minimize the time and effort of both jobseekers and targeted agencies, particularly in light of the readiness and support of the three government partners of the bank’s mechanism of work; namely, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE), Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship and Federal Authority for Government Human Resources, he said.
He called on Emiratis to take advantage of the features provided by the bank, particularly in terms of applying directly for the jobs offered by government and semi-government agencies and the private sector.
The ‘UAE Jobs Bank’ is offering in the current stage the jobs that fall under the targeted professions and are needed by 160 entities including government agencies and such semi-government companies as the federal and local establishments and organizations, joint-stock companies and national banks. In the second stage scheduled to be implemented at the beginning of the second quarter of next year, the private sector will be obligated to offer its jobs under the targeted professions.
Emiratis can review these jobs and apply for them directly through the website aejobs.ae. The entities offering the jobs will conduct job interviews with the Emiratis whose qualifications and abilities meet the requirements of the offered jobs. They will also complete the appointment procedures of those who pass the interview.
According to the mechanism of work of the ‘UAE Jobs Bank’, the targeted government and private entities are obligated to explain within five working days why an Emirati has not passed the interview before they are allowed to appoint a non-Emirati in the announced job.
