Three hundred UAE nationals will be recruited by Abu Dhabi’s largest bank this year according to a recent statement. The National Bank of Abu Dhabi (NBAD) needs to recruit three hundred native citizens this year to increase its level of local bank employment to 38% by the end of 2010.
The Bank have stated that it is their preferred mission statement as Abu Dhabi’s largest bank to keep staff levels with at least 38% of employees being UAE native citizens. NBAD have said they will increase this initiative by a further 2% this year compared to last year.
To encourage locals to apply for positions within their bank they are now participating in a three day National Career Exhibition which starts today and is being held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Last year the National Bank of Abu Dhabi employed 442 UAE nationals and this increased the total number of native employees to 1,046 which meant that 36% of the banks total employees were classed as being citizens of the United Arab Emirates.
At managerial level about 50% of employees are UAE nationals but the bank hope to increase this figure further during the next year. They also want to re-iterate the fact that all of their staff are trained to a very high level, have great opportunities for advancement within the bank and are always judges on their own individual merits.Paul Holdsworth, Staff Writer, Gulf Jobs Market News
