Vince Cook, Abdulla Aleter and NBF staff at the National Career Exhibition
National Bank of Fujairah continues to make its presence felt through national recruitment platforms such as this week’s National Career Exhibition at the Expo Centre Sharjah, reaffirming its commitment towards cultivating Emirati talent for leadership roles within the bank and the local economy.
Following its participation in Tawdheef earlier this month, NBF will also be present at the national career fairs in Fujairah and Dubai later this year, reiterating the importance placed by the bank towards engaging the nation’s youth and understanding their career aspirations.
National Bank of Fujairah’s Emiratisation ratio currently stands at 41%, above the industry average. In a recent survey conducted by global management consultancy Hay Group, staff at NBF exhibit satisfaction and engagement levels that are ahead of the banking sector in the GCC and on par with, if not ahead of, many high-performing global organisations. The survey also showed that Emirati staff at NBF exhibit higher levels of engagement compared to their peers in many other companies within the UAE.
At the sidelines of the National Career Exhibition, Abdulla Aleter, NBF’s Head of HR said: “At NBF, we believe in constantly investing in our human capital through a holistic approach focusing on training and development, staff recognition and employee welfare.
“Platforms ranging from our successful management trainee and career development programmes for fresh graduates and existing staff respectively, to specialised courses such as an advanced credit risk management training programme conducted jointly with Fitch Learning for a third of the bank’s employees, underscore our belief that the best results can be achieved if we align the growth plans of the bank with the future of our human capital.”
