As part of the banks’ efforts to attract, train and retain UAE National talent, Emirates NBD, the leading bank in the field of Emiratisation, conducted its 6th open day in cooperation with Tanmia. This time the event was held at TANMIA premises in Ras AL Khaima. During the open day, instant interviews were conducted at Emirates NBD’s stand for UAE Nationals interested in taking a Banking and Finance career path. In the past 5 events, Emirates NBD has recruited more than 100 UAE nationals. Whereas, the RAK event was an opportunity to collect the applications of 50 young UAE nationals who visited its booth and are interested in joining its workforce.
Emirates NBD has adopted an ambitious Emiratisation strategy which is built on supporting and participating in the various initiatives and events across the UAE. In this context, Emirates NBD continuously participates in the various career fairs and works closely with TANMIA, Zayed University and the Higher Colleges of Technology and the various Emiratisation organizations to identify potential talent. In addition, the bank coordinates with Special Needs institutions to employ qualified individuals with special needs in the various departments of the bank. Also, Emirates NBD considers Emiratisation a priority issue and continuously creates career opportunities to attract and retain UAE National talent.
