“Altogether, 918 candidates have applied for taxi drivers at the Career Fair held at DTC's Head Office, Muhaisnah 4. The event enabled candidates to interact directly with the recruitment officers of DTC to know more about the application process and the diverse DTC services to customers, such as taxis, limousines, school buses and commercial coaches,” said Nasir Mohammed Al Haj, the director of drivers' happiness, DTC.

“The event also provided a platform for responding to the candidates’ queries, such as the driver’s daily average income, benefits, housing, transportation and others. Candidates were able to apply after being interviewed officially by DTC staff during the fair.

The event underscores the DTC’s commitment to keep pace with the market needs, especially under the current economic recovery and the full restoration of the taxi services in Dubai.
