National Bank of Fujairah bolsters commitment to Emiratisation during participation at Tawdheef 2019

Bank offers employment opportunities for UAE nationals in the financial and banking sector

National Bank of Fujairah (NBF) PJSC announced its participation in the Abu Dhabi Career Fair which is being held between January 28-30 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), under the patronage of His Excellency Sheikh Nahyan Mabarak Al Nahyan, Cabinet Member and Minister of Tolerance. It is the sixth consecutive time that NBF has participated in this leading platform which focuses on the recruitment and career development of UAE Nationals. During this three-day event, the bank is looking to attract talented Emiratis who will join the NBF team and get the chance to develop their careers by taking on leadership roles within the bank.

During 2019, the bank will be participating in a number of career fairs across the country, reaffirming its commitment to recruiting and developing the best Emirati talent. Boasting a prestigious reputation as one of the leading employer brands, NBF’s HR team has been lauded time and again at coveted platforms for its endeavours in promoting Emiratisation and driving leading initiatives in employee engagement and wellbeing.

Commenting on the side-lines of the event, Watfa Abdulkarim, Manager – Emiratisation at NBF said: “We look forward to meeting with young UAE nationals who are eager to kick-start their career in the banking industry. Employee engagement and happiness have long been an integral part of all our HR policies as we seek to create a stimulating working environment for all our employees in addition to offering them career development opportunities. In line with the UAE Vision 2021, we are making relentless efforts to ensure that our employer brand is attractive to Emirati nationals while we offer them opportunities to develop and grow their careers as well as contribute to the local economy.”

As a leading employer brand, NBF focuses on recruiting, training, developing and retaining UAE National employees through its career advancement and national development programmes. NBF was also recognised by the Central Bank of the UAE for supporting the country’s Emiratisation Strategy and achieving above the required number of target points for the implementation of the Nationalisation System in the bank. With UAE Nationals making up around 40% of all employees, this is a key indicator for the bank’s focus on hiring and retaining local talent.

Also reflective of its commitment to Emiratisation are the bank’s efforts in developing products that cater to the Emirati population. Indicative of this, the bank recently launched NBF Ajyal, a bespoke financial proposition focused on catering to the needs of young Emiratis.
