Dubai Parks and Resorts has launched a major Emiratisation programme to target more than 1,000 UAE nationals by dedicating more than one third of its jobs to Emiratis.
In line with Dubai’s 2020 vision and seven year national agenda, the programme will seek to empower and grow a new generation of talent for the theme park industry, one of the UAE’s most exciting growth sectors. The programme includes three divisions, Forsati, Sahim, and Helmi, which offers Emiratis of all career levels, from new graduates to future leaders, an inspiring range of job opportunities. Forsati, which means my ‘opportunity’ in Arabic, will comprise a development programme for UAE nationals of high-school education or below and provide a total of six months training.
Sahim, which is Arabic for ‘contribute’, will offer a direct recruit of UAE nationals at all levels with a high-school education and above with a minimum of three years’ experience across all departments. Helmi, which means ‘my dream’ in Arabic, will offer graduates an exciting scholarship programme. Each programme division will empower participants to become well-trained profession- als, who will play a central role in driving the the operations of the company’s three theme parks in Dubai that are set to open in October 2016.
