Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC), the operator of Abu Dhabi’s five airports, announced today its Emiratisation targets for the year. The company plans to have 30% of its workforce comprising of Emiratis by December 2011.
ADAC’s Human Resources department has prepared a number of strategies and tactics to achieve the targets and fill key roles across the company’s growing airports. This year’s Tawdheef, Abu Dhabi’s leading career event taking place between 25-27 January, will be a strategic focus for the company’s efforts to attract national talent as it is confirmed as a key sponsor of the event. Applicants will be able to view and apply for jobs with ADAC electronically on the spot through an efficient, convenient process.
Mohammed Al Marri, Vice President of Human Resources commented:
“As a national company we are proud to have set a 30% Emiratisation target for this year, which we are very confident in achieving. Participating in Tawdheef, which occurs at the beginning of the year, provides us with an ample amount of time to process, evaluate and offer potential hires attractive packages for the roles we have on offer. This is very important as we strive to have the best talent and in turn, be the employer of choice in the Emirate.”
As part of its human resources strategy for this year, ADAC is also in the process of redesigning the careers portal on its website to improve the job seeking experience for future employees. The system will also provide a streamlined process for the company’s recruitment team to review applications.
In its third year participation, ADAC is introducing interactive zones at its stand at Tawdheef 2011 to offer a walkthrough the company, its five airports as well as the five regions in which it operates. The interactive pods will allow visitors to have a closer view of the latest projects in the emirate such as the cultural district in Saadiyat Island, as well as the entertainment and commercial venues in Yas Island. Visitors will also have the rare opportunity to experience a virtual flight experience through ADAC flight stimulator available at the stand.
