UAE National Careers in Jumeirah

Emiratisation in Jumeirah:

At Jumeirah we are fully committed to hiring, developing and retaining Emiratis who are keen to start a career in hospitality and tourism.

Jumeirah is the leading Hospitality Company in Emiratisation, and we believe Jumeirah Group's 'National Graduate Management Programme' is the first national leadership programme launched in the UAE hotel industry in 2010.

Hospitality is a key fabric of Emirati culture, and the Emiratis in Jumeirah play the role of the ambassadors of hospitality.

Jumeirah UAE National Future Leaders Program

A fast track program to grow UAE nationals, both academically and operationally. Upon successful completion they will become the Hotel General Managers in 2020, responsible for the management of the hotels’ commercial and operational strategies, to achieve financial and business targets.

Jumeirah’s future leaders selected for this program, will start their 5 year journey with full support of the hotels’ operations and supporting functions for the first 3 years, to develop an all-round operational hotel experience.  At the completion of these three years, candidates will have taken an overseas position for one year at our global properties, running their own teams and operations, to enhance their leadership and business acumen competencies.  The fifth and final year will be in a senior role with full responsibility, to enhance both colleagues and guest experience.  After successful completion the Future Leader will take up a senior position within one of our larger hotels and resorts.
