Jumeirah Group participates in Careers UAE 2012
Dubai, 05 March 2012: Jumeirah Group, the Dubai-based luxury hospitality company and a member of Dubai Holding, is participating in the UAE’s annual careers fair which takes place at Dubai World Trade Centre from 05 – 07 March 2012.
Representatives from Jumeirah’s Human Resources Department, UAE Nationals working for Jumeirah and graduates from Jumeirah’s National Development Management Programme will be on hand at the Jumeirah stand, where they will provide information about working for Jumeirah and job opportunities for Emirati candidates in existing or upcoming Jumeirah hotels. Potential candidates will also be able to engage in face-to-face interviews on the stand.
Jumeirah Group is fully committed to hiring, developing and retaining Emiratis who are keen to start and develop a career in hospitality and tourism. Two years ago Jumeirah started a National Development Management Programme as an initiative to educate and train Emiratis to become future leaders in these sectors.
The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management, which forms part of Jumeirah Group, also offers a scholarship programme for Emirati students who are looking for an internationally-recognised Bachelor degree in business and hospitality accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. Scholarship applicants must have a minimum requirement entry of 75% and proficiency in English language. The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management has been working with Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) over a number of years to prepare and train UAE Nationals for entry-level employment within the hospitality and tourism industry.
Jumeirah’s participation in the careers fair supports the Group’s National development programme, which aims at recruiting the best Emirati talent to help in building new generations of UAE Nationals that can lead in the hospitality sector.
