Sharjah Airport Authority (SAA) has concluded its participation in the 21st National Career Exhibition, which was held at the Expo Centre Sharjah from February 6th to 8th under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah. SAA participated as part of its strategy to promote emiratisation with recruitment programs aimed at Emiratis.
During the Exhibition, SAA provided an overview of work in the Authority’s various departments and divisions and highlighted the advantages that SAA staff enjoy, including several world-class training programs that offer opportunities for professional development.
The percentage of Emirati national employees at SAA has risen to 59%. SAA is seeking to increase the percentage of UAE nationals in specialised technical roles by 2%. The Authority is launching and implementing initiatives to raise these percentages.
In recent years, as part of its commitment to UAE Vision 2021, Sharjah Airport Authority’s Emiratisation efforts have helped to raise the percentage of UAE national employees in administrative and technical jobs to 90%. This percentage continues to increase in line with continuing efforts to promote sustainable development.
SAA provides multiple benefits to Emirati employees, including rapid career advancement, on-the-job training and opportunities to interact with different cultures in a variety of environments. The percentage of Emirati staff at SAA is steadily increasing. The Authority participates in the National Career Exhibition every year, showcasing an extended range of jobs.
SAA is keen to implement the vision of the wise leadership by making possibilities available to UAE nationals and supporting the UAE’s progress in all sectors and areas. SAA supports Emiratisation by recruiting Emirati personnel for leadership, administrative and technical positions using strict standards that take into account the personnel’s competence and ability to innovate. This supports SAA’s progress, which is in line with the Government of Sharjah’s strategy to boost Emiratisation at various institutions in the Emirate.
