National Bank of Fujairah (NBF) PJSC announced today its participation at the Fujairah International Career and Education Fair 2018 taking place at the Fujairah Exhibition Center between April 24-26. A regular participant at national career fairs across the UAE, this is the seventh time that NBF will be taking part in this event. The focus will be on meeting young Emirati talent interested in a banking career and highlighting NBF’s efforts recruiting and training UAE Nationals to take on leadership roles within the bank.  

As one of the leading employer brands across the UAE banking industry and beyond, NBF pays special attention to recruiting, training, developing and retaining UAE National employees.

A key differentiator for NBF is that it actively listens to its employees and involves them in the decision-making processes.

Having a robust HR strategy in place to engage Emirati talent, the bank currently boasts an Emiratisation rate of 42% which is well above industry average. It continues to invest in training and growing the next generation of Emirati bankers within its growing team. NBF’s award-winning Emiratisation initiatives are geared towards helping UAE Nationals maximise their potential and as such, include a management trainee programme designed to groom fresh graduates into management positions, as well as career advancement and national development programmes that help their career growth ambitions within the bank.

Indicative of the bank’s leading position in this space, NBF received three accolades at the Gulf Employee Experience Awards 2018 namely, “HR Team of the Year”, “Nationalisation Award” and the “Overall Gulf Employee Experience Award” thus cementing the bank’s status as an employer of choice in the banking industry. Last year, the bank was awarded the accolade of “Outstanding Employer” in the Middle East at the Korn Ferry Employee Engagement Awards, in recognition of the increased levels of engagement achieved over the last seven years. In the past, it has also received the “Best HR Team” award at the MENA HR Excellence Awards in 2017, for the second consecutive time, as well as the “Best Employee Brand” award at the LinkedIn Talent Awards 2016.
