Imdaad targets talent at Careers UAE 2016
The IFM provider will focus its efforts on attracting females, who account for roughly 18% of unemployed Emirati youth in the UAE.
Imdaad has recently announced its participation in the 16th edition of Careers UAE, the national fair for job seekers exclusively for Emiratis.
Set to run from 16 – 18 May 2016 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, Imdaad aims to target female talent, who account for roughly 18% of unemployed Emirati youth in the UAE.
Jamal Abdullah Lootah, CEO, Imdaad, said: “Imdaad believes in the importance of supporting the UAE’s vision of increasing the number of UAE Nationals who are productive members of the workforce as embodied by the national Emiratisation program.”
He added: “We believe in the effectiveness of job fairs such as Careers UAE in reducing the unemployment rate among Emirati youths and encouraging young Nationals to pursue fulfilling careers while contributing to national development.”
The integrated facilities, waste and energy management firm has previously recruited five young Emirati women, who were subsequently placed across a number of business units.
As part of the company’s Elham imitative launched in 2014, these candidates were assigned in areas, such as operations, finance, HR, customer relations, business development and marketing.
The Elham initiative will be highlighted once again at Careers UAE 2016.
“Over the years, Elham has been instrumental for Imdaad to continue its mission and reach out to more youths through our various initiatives for addressing the current unemployment gap. Part of our responsibility towards our country and its communities is to develop National talents and mould them into future FM professionals and leaders,” concludes Lootah.
