The Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) has participated in Careers UAE 2019 as part of its quest to strengthen its Emiratisation strategy through attracting Emirati talents in the field of civil aviation for leadership, managerial and technical vacancies.
His Excellency Mohammed Abdulla Ahli, Director General of DCAA, said: "DCAA's participation in Careers UAE 2019 has been a great opportunity for us to attract Emiratis to contribute towards further building Dubai's aviation sector, which now forms a significant part of the Emirate's economic growth."
The Authority gives great attention to this participation as the event represents the pinnacle of UAE's career-dedicated exhibitions since the launch of its first edition way back in 2000.
The Authority is acting upon a strategy to encourage and spur Emiratisation policies through employing national cadres to contribute to the sector, and it has been continuously seeking to provide all possible support to develop these cadres and give them the opportunity to prove their professional calibre in order to serve the UAE. Our ultimate aim is to prepare new generations of UAE nationals in the various professional disciplines, he said.
Acting in accordance with the visions and directions of the UAE leaders to empower Emirati citizens and offer them due opportunities to contribute to supporting the nation's economy, we are also keen on the Emiratisation in the Authority with a view to activate the role of citizens in the labour market, he added.
Abdulrahim Al Mulla, Executive Director of Corporate Support and Communication Sector, stressed that "DCAA has been participating in Careers UAE since 2009 to offer talented Emirati citizens employment opportunities in the civil aviation sector, which is one of the key components of the UAE's economy with a 27 per cent contribution to GDP in 2018."
He added: "During the event, the Authority provide opportunities to job seekers from amongst Emirati citizens, while its experts provide guidance and advice to visitors on the jobs on offer, in addition to future growth opportunities the civil aviation sector will provide to the ambitious and talented." This event will contribute to the realisation of the UAE's vision to empower and attract the youth through providing them with employment opportunities.
Hamad Al Janahi, Director of Human Resources Department, said: "Through its participation in this event, DCAA aims to attract national cadres seeking job opportunities, with the aim to implement the Emiratisation plans of the Authority. Careers UAE is an active platform to receive national cadres and Emirati talents with a view to fill the excellent job opportunities offered by the Authority."
