News : RAKBANK Participates in the 2014 Dubai Career Fair
April 22, 2014 -- RAKBANK, a retail and small business bank in the UAE, is supporting Emiratization through its participation in the 2014 Dubai Career Fair. Its strong presence at the Fair seeks to open doors for national job seekers to a wide range of educational, training, and career opportunities.
"RAKBANK is planning to recruit over 120 Emiratis this year, as part of an aggressive Emiratisation campaign," said Fahad Khalaf, RAKBANK's Nationalization Manager. "We are actively recruiting national talent into our Branches, Operations, and Call Centre, as well as some specialist functions across the Bank."
RAKBANK will offer onsite interviews to the candidates during the fair who will have the opportunity to meet representatives from different divisions to offer an insight into career opportunities.
"Emiratisation is a top priority in the UAE, and therefore for RAKBANK as well," said Peter England, RAKBANK CEO. "Most of our national hiring takes place in our home emirate of Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) where our new staff members play numerous roles in growing the Bank's operations. We provide selected talent with a range of training and development programs to enhance their banking knowledge and professional competencies," explained England.
New recruits are inducted through a six-month Graduate Training Program, and following that continue to be involved in various courses that are tailored to enhance individual skills. By developing the Nationals' knowledge and skills, the Bank prepares them for future positions where they can play influential roles in the UAE banking industry.
"As we renew our mission to be the financial partner of choice in the UAE, we focus on our staff as our brand ambassadors by offering them promising career opportunities and long-term growth," added England.
