DPR to create 1000 jobs for UAE nationals
Each programme division will empower participants to become well-trained professionals, who will play a central role in driving the theme park operations
Dubai Parks and Resorts has launched a major Emiratisation programme to target more than 1,000 UAE nationals by dedicating more than one third of its jobs to Emiratis.
The programme includes three divisions, Forsati, Sahim, and Helmi, which offer Emiratis of all career levels – from new graduates to future leaders – a range of job opportunities.
Forsati, meaning my ‘opportunity’ in Arabic, will comprise a development programme for UAE Nationals of high school education or below and provide a total of six months training.
Sahim, Arabic for ‘contribute’, will offer a direct recruit of UAE nationals at all levels with high school education and above with minimum three years’ experience across all departments within Dubai Parks and Resorts.
Helmi, which means ‘my dream’ in Arabic, will offer graduates an exciting scholarship programme.
Each programme division will empower participants to become well-trained professionals, who will play a central role in driving the operations of the company’s three theme parks in Dubai that are set to open in October 2016.
Raed Al Nuaimi, CEO of Dubai Parks and Resorts, said: “Through the launch of this Emiratisation programme we aim to build a significant talent pool of Emirati professionals in theme park operations. Building Emirati talent is part of our commitment to accomplishing the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, to nurture and empower Emirati skillsets in all business sectors.”
Dubai Parks and Resorts is developing the Middle East’s largest multi-themed, integrated family entertainment destination. The resort will feature the region’s first LEGOLAND, along with a LEGOLAND Water Park, as well as motiongate Dubai and Bollywood Parks Dubai.
