Al-Habtoor Group holds Emirati recruitment open day

Al-Habtoor Group (AHG) is holding an open day for the recruitment of Emiratis on Oct. 3. AHG is looking to fill more than 200 vacancies with Emirati candidates, ranging from top C-suite to entry-level positions across group divisions — hospitality, real estate, automotive, vehicle leasing, education and the head office.

The event will be held at the Hilton Dubai Al-Habtoor City at the Al-Joud ballroom from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., in collaboration with the UAE Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization (MOHRE), and with Dubai College of Tourism, and Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT).

In line with the “Letter of the New Season” of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, vice president and prime minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai, to boost Emiratization across the UAE, AHG has actively boosted the hiring of Emiratis in recent weeks, providing the new recruits with necessary on-the-job training and guidance to enhance their skills and help them blend into the work environment at AHG.

Founding Chairman of the Group Khalaf Ahmad Al-Habtoor said: “We want to encourage more Emiratis to work in the private sector and are committed to sharing with them our experiences and knowledge. They are the future of the UAE. The private sector will provide them with great exposure and learning opportunities, and I am counting on them to work hard, hand in hand with their colleagues, and to learn and excel in their chosen fields.”

He added: “I have instructed the teams across the group to ensure that Emiratis joining our Al-Habtoor Group family are provided with all the support they need to succeed and grow within our companies. Our Emiratization strategy will provide nationals with learning, development and an encouraging work culture to help them reach their potential.”

Mohammed Al-Habtoor, vice chairman and CEO of AHG, said: “We are committed to increasing Emiratization across the different units of the group, and have already welcomed the first batch of new Emirati recruits in the past weeks. I encourage nationals to come to the open day, as the available opportunities are for all levels of education and experience.”

At the recruitment event, nationals interested in joining AHG will be aided in filling up application forms and guided to the relevant AHG units, according to their areas of professional interest. On-the-spot interviews will be conducted to shortlist the best candidates for the positions available.
