Hotelier Middle East - - CONTENTS -

In co­op­er­a­tion with the Min­istry of Hu­man Re­sources and Emiratisation, the De­part­ment of Cul­ture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) re­cently or­gan­ised a Re­cruit­ment Open Day to en­cour­age Emi­rati youth to work in the tourism sec­tor.

The event, which was at­tended by stu­dents from Zayed Univer­sity,

UAE Univer­sity, Abu Dhabi Univer­sity, Higher Col­leges of Tech­nol­ogy and Euro­pean In­ter­na­tional Col­lege, served as an in­vi­ta­tion to UAE youth to par­tic­i­pate in the de­vel­op­ment of Abu Dhabi as a tourism des­ti­na­tion and as a plat­form for in­vest­ment, while help­ing to de­velop pro­fes­sional cadres to drive the in­dus­try.

As well as the more than 250 job va­can­cies of­fered to Emi­ratis in the tourism sec­tor by DCT Abu Dhabi, 15 ho­tels from Abu Dhabi also par­tic­i­pated with 61 job va­can­cies on of­fer. The ho­tels in­cluded Emi­rates Palace, In­tercon­ti­nen­tal Abu Dhabi, Rose­wood Abu Dhabi, Radis­son Blu, Dusit Thani, Jumeirah at Eti­had Tow­ers, Fair­mont, Sher­a­ton Abu Dhabi Ho­tel & Re­sort, Shangri-la, Park Hy­att Ho­tel, Aloft Abu Dhabi, Ritz-carl­ton, St. Regis Saadiyat, Mar­riott Ho­tel Al For­san, Hol­i­day Inn Abu Dhabi and Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi – Yas Is­land.

Fa­tima Farhan, di­rec­tor of Re­cruit­ment De­part­ment at the Min­istry of Hu­man Re­sources and Emiratisation, said that the strate­gic part­ner­ship be­tween the Min­istry and DCT Abu Dhabi was based on the in­te­gra­tion of their roles and mis­sions, which in turn would con­trib­ute to in­creas­ing Emiratisation in the pri­vate sec­tor.

“The tourism sec­tor in the Emi­rate of Abu Dhabi is filled with ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties that meet the as­pi­ra­tions of Emi­ratis, es­pe­cially those pre­par­ing to grad­u­ate and join the pri­vate sec­tor, which pro­vides broad prospects for pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment and growth,” said Farhan. “The im­por­tance of the re­cruit­ment open days that we or­gan­ise at the Min­istry in co­op­er­a­tion with our part­ners lies in their abil­ity to reach a wide num­ber of stu­dents and grad­u­ates, as well as in at­tract­ing na­tional hu­man re­sources to fill the avail­able po­si­tions in in­sti­tu­tions and com­pa­nies work­ing in the eco­nomic sec­tors.

“By link­ing com­pa­nies with job­seek­ers, these events play an ac­tive role in al­low­ing com­pa­nies to iden­tify the abil­i­ties and skills they need in their work struc­ture, as well as pro­vid­ing stu­dents with in­for­ma­tion on the na­ture of jobs pro­vided and their re­quire­ments.”

Maha Jas­sim Al Man­soori, di­rec­tor of the Peo­ple and Per­for­mance De­part­ment at DCT Abu Dhabi, said: “We were pleased to or­gan­ise this event in co­op­er­a­tion with the Min­istry of Hu­man Re­sources and Emiratisation, to present a strate­gic plat­form to at­tract Emi­rati stu­dents and univer­sity grad­u­ates to work in the tourism sec­tor.

“DCT Abu Dhabi’s ef­forts have suc­ceeded in the lo­cal­i­sa­tion of jobs in the tourism sec­tor, which comes as a re­sult of the ac­tive re­sponse of the pri­vate sec­tor, and its com­mit­ment to pro­vid­ing more jobs for those wish­ing to make a dif­fer­ence in an in­dus­try that plays a key role in di­ver­si­fy­ing the econ­omy of Abu Dhabi. DCT Abu Dhabi is com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing valu­able train­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to de­velop the skills of Emi­ratis, so that they can con­trib­ute pos­i­tively to the growth of the tourism sec­tor, while also strength­en­ing their pro­fes­sional ex­pe­ri­ence to­wards a suc­cess­ful and pro­duc­tive ca­reer.”

Par­tic­i­pants learned about the ex­per­tise re­quired to work in tourism and were in­tro­duced to op­por­tu­ni­ties in the field and at DCT Abu Dhabi, which pro­motes Abu Dhabi, its cul­tural her­itage and its at­trac­tions. They were given an over­view of the fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment ac­tiv­i­ties that DCT

Abu Dhabi of­fers res­i­dents and vis­i­tors, which con­trib­ute to en­hanc­ing the emi­rate’s po­si­tion as a sus­tain­able, world-class tourism des­ti­na­tion.

The event was at­tended by stu­dents from Zayed Univer­sity, UAE Univer­sity, Abu Dhabi Univer­sity, Higher Col­leges of Tech­nol­ogy and Euro­pean In­ter­na­tional Col­lege.
