SENAAT TO SHOWCASE OVER 172 JOB VACANCIES AT TAWDHEEF 2019

 

28 January 2018, Abu Dhabi – UAE: SENAAT, one of the largest industrial investment holding companies in the UAE, is all set to showcase a wide range of job opportunities at Tawdheef, the region’s leading recruitment event, taking place at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

 

As an Industrial Partner for seventh consecutive year, the Abu Dhabi-based industrial conglomerate will offer over 172 potential job openings and career-development opportunities, which represent a wide range of disciplines at the group level and at its portfolio companies, including Emirates Steel, Al Foah, Arkan, National Petroleum Construction Company, Al Gharbia Pipe Company and Ducab.   

 

H.E. Eng. Jamal Salem Al Dhaheri, CEO of SENAAT, said: “A well-nurtured human capital is one of our greatest assets to transform the UAE into a global platform for innovative industries. As one of the largest employers in the UAE’s industrial sector, SENAAT is committed to providing an enabling and conducive environment to the UAE Nationals to achieve their full potential and to drive next generation of growth in line with Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030. Our long-standing collaboration with Tawdheef is a true testament to this commitment.”

 

SENAAT has successfully placed 161 Emirati employees throughout the group in 2018, while retaining a significant portion of 1367 Emiratis in the same period. By 2020, SENAAT aims to recruit 396 Emiratis across the group, to achieve 23 per cent Emiratisation of its workforce across the group. Tawdheef has been one of the most important talent acquisition platforms for SENAAT.

 

 

Following a strategic plan to support the national Emiratisation program, SENAAT has achieved an outstanding Emiratisation rate of 66 per cent achieved at the holding level, and 100 per cent  nationalisation of all senior leadership positions.

 

Mahmood Al Hameli, Senior Vice Presidet Business Support, SENAAT said: “Two of the biggest challenges facing the industry today are to develop a broader combination of skills required to meet the ever-evolving needs of the industry and retain the talent for sustained growth in knowledge-based and innovation-focused sectors. These areas can only be addressed by building a culture of continuous learning that enables employees to acquire new skills, sharpen existing ones, perform better, increase productivity and be prepared to lead an increasingly competitive and ever-changing market. More importantly, as STEM disciplines become more specialized, it is extremely important for young graduates to understand the industry demands and trends so that they can align their academic field experience and skillset with the opportunities and economic needs of the future. Keeping this in mind, SENAAT has plans to implement integrated leadership roadmap in line with Abu Dhabi 2030 vision. These programs will be launched in 2019 to equip Emiratis developing leadership skills that will enable them to face the complexities of today, tomorrow and the future ahead.”

 

Over the years, SENAAT and its portfolio companies have emerged as one of the highly sought-after employers in the region, thanks to its thriving work culture where everyone takes pride in celebrating each other’s successes, and work collaboratively to achieve a common goal.

 

As part of the upskilling efforts, SENAAT has successfully delivered a number of highly sophisticated training and leadership development programmes to 13,365 employees so far to help elevate their careers and serve as an ideal platform for success.

As it has been the case in the past, senior recruitment specialists and talent development representative from SENAAT and its portfolio companies will be present at stand A20 to interact with and guide prospective candidates in acquiring all the knowledge and insights relating to the industry and skills in-demand that may influence their career progression.
