National Bank of Fujairah (NBF) PJSC continues to reaffirm its support for the development of local talent through its participation in Tawdheef at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), under the patronage of His Excellency Sheikh Nahyan Mabarak Al Nahyan, Cabinet Member and Minister of Tolerance. The event is the region’s leading Emiratisation exhibition that focuses on recruitment, career development and entrepreneurship. This is the seventh consecutive year that NBF was present at the three-day event attracting local talent to be part in its award-winning career development programmes.

A key element of NBF’s HR strategy focuses on supporting the career aspiration of the nation’s youth and developing their skills to prepare them to take on leadership roles within the bank. Today, a majority of the national youth employed within the bank are in high-ranking and in critical roles across various departments including Risk, Audit, Corporate Banking, Credit, IT, among others. 

Commenting on the side-lines of the event, Watfa Abdulkarim, Manager – Emiratisation at NBF said: “We are very excited to be engaging with UAE nationals at the leading Emiratisation exhibition fair. Emiratisation has always been at the center of our award-winning HR strategy and we are committed to cultivating the right type of talent to help drive their banking careers forward.”

The bank pays particular attention to recruiting, training, developing and retaining UAE National employees through its Management Trainee Program, offering Emiratis access to mentorship opportunities for 12 months in a bid to focus on the number of UAE nationals in the finance and banking sector. As NBF’s National employees start to climb the career ladder, the bank continues to nurture their growth-journeys by providing continuous support to prepare them for management positions and leadership roles through its Career Advancement and National Development Programmes.
