EGA resumes hiring Emiratis under National Training programme
The latest batch of UAE Nationals joining the programmes have been provided with both theoretical and practical education
Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA), the largest industrial company in the UAE outside oil and gas, has resumed hiring young Emiratis for technical roles through its National Training programmes, following a break in the recruitment process due to COVID-19.
Around 21 young Emiratis have joined the first batch of new trainees since July 2020.
EGA’s National Training programmes helps young UAE Nationals develop their technical skills, enabling them to work in operational roles within its smelters and power plants.
The latest batch of UAE Nationals joining the programmes have been provided with both theoretical and practical education, using a blend of online classroom and specially designed technical training, while also maintaining the safety of the new joiners.
Commending his team resuming our National Training programmes, despite the challenges caused by COVID-19, CEO of EGA, Abdulnasser Bin Kalban, said: “We are committed to recruiting and developing the best talent for EGA as an investment in our future.”
Meanwhile, director of maintenance at EGA, and a former graduate of a National Training programme, Ibrahim Al Bastaki, said: “Through a National Training programme at EGA, I was given exposure to various levels of technical and managerial skills through development modules with hands-on responsibilities and participation in numerous training courses and overseas conferences.”
EGA has been running the National Training programme since 1982. The company provides a wide range of courses and programmes designed to enable employees to reach their full potential.
In terms of statistics, more than 1,000 UAE Nationals work at EGA and more than a third of the 1,800 people working in supervisory positions at the company are Emirati.
