The UAE energy and oil & gas sectors are stepping up their 2013 Emiratisation efforts, as a score of major organisations prepare to sieve through thousands of Emirati job candidates at the country's leading recruitment fair next week.
The majority of these will be offered by Al Mansoori Specialised Engineering, which has listed 1,000 jobs on the recruitment fair's website, tawdheef.ae, across 75 positions, ranging from HSE Coordinators to Senior Engineers.
Headquartered in Abu Dhabi, Al Mansoori has operations in more than 20 countries in the MENA region, and has aggressive expansion plans to grow its oil gas services, from slickline and directional drilling, well testing, manpower supply, inspections, technical and safety training, and equipment manufacturing.
Abdalla Omar Rahuma, Corporate Human Capital Manager at Al Mansoori Specialised Engineering said: "In our strategic plan to address emiratisation in the UAE and implement our existing recruitment policies, we are looking into hiring as many Emiratis as possible to support our business growth, and help the UAE government in the development of UAE nationals."
