Abu Dhabi Ports and subsidiary ADT offer over 120 new jobs for Emiratis

Abu Dhabi Ports aims to achieve 51 per cent emiratisation in 2016

Abu Dhabi Ports and its subsidiary Abu Dhabi Terminals – which operates the Khalifa Port Container Terminal – will offer more than 120 new jobs for Emiratis next week at recruitment event Tawdheef.

The job opportunities are part of Abu Dhabi Ports’ plan to achieve 51 per cent emiratisation in 2016, up from 47 per cent in 2015.

Abu Dhabi Ports – which runs the Khalifa Port and the Khalifa Industrial Zone – will offer 64 jobs while ADT will open 63 positions across all departments.

On-the-spot interviews will be conducted and applications will be collected for these positions at Tawdheef.

The selected candidates will undergo intensive training programmes and on-the-job practical training. A dedicated mentor will extend support and guidance to them on all career related matters, a statement said.

“Along with job offers, we will also tell the young nationals the success stories of our Emirati employees, including women, who have excelled in their important and responsible positions,” said vice president-Emiratisation and HR & Administration at Abu Dhabi Ports Abdullah Al Hameli.

Abu Dhabi Ports currently runs the NAWRUS programme to encourage Emiratis to take up positions within port operations while the PIER programme fast tracks Emirati employees’ promotion to the top leadership positions.

Senior HR director at ADT Eisa Hasan Al Marzouqi added: “Emiratisation is Abu Dhabi Terminals’ top priority and we are committed to have UAE nationals in all levels of the organisation, from senior and middle management to supervisory and practical roles in operations and engineering positions at Khalifa Port Container Terminal.”

The three-day Tawdheef event runs from February 1- 3 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre and highlights job opportunities for Emiratis.
