ENDP to Receive Recruitment Applications from National Job Seekers

Dubai, 16 June 2006: Marking a unique milestone since its establishment in February 2005, Emirates Nationals Development Program (ENDP) will start Saturday 17 June receiving applications from UAE national job seekers through its website and special booths in Dubai malls.

Through its latest initiative, ENDP aims to help unemployed UAE nationals match their qualifications with job opportunities in the private sector. The process will also help ENDP identify under-qualified applicants who require training in industry-specific skills.

Azza Al Sharhan, CEO of ENDP, said: "The announcement signifies a new phase for ENDP. Apart from motivating nationals to work in the private sector, ENDP will also assist them in finding suitable job placements. Applicants who do not have sufficient qualification will be provided training by ENDP through one of its programmes."

The ENDP database has currently around 2000 job opportunities across the hospitality, real estate, IT, banking and other private sector segments.

ENDP’s alliance with prominent entities of the private sector will ensure an increased number of job opportunities for UAE nationals in the future, Al Sharhan added.

"The application process is in line with the ENDP’s objectives of outlining the benefits and potential of working within the private sector to UAE nationals," said Al Sharhan.

To facilitate more number of nationals to make use of ENDP’s initiative, several recruitment kiosks will be set up at shopping centres including Deira City Center, Mall Of The Emirates, Burjuman, Al Ghurair City, and Sahara Center.

Senior professionals from private sector companies will offer advice and consultancy to national job seekers at these booths, and assist them with the application process.

ENDP has successfully trained more than 500 UAE nationals to work in the private sector through specialised training courses such as "Work Essentials" and the "MAHARAT" Hospitality Training programme.
