“Al-Futtaim is committed to attract, develop and retain UAE nationals as we believe investing in the leaders of tomorrow is key to future sustainability,” said Zuhair Al Haj, Director of Human Resources and Localisation in the MENA region, Al-Futtaim. “Al-Futtaim’s market reputation as an employer of choice amongst Emiratis earned by our total and uncompromising commitment towards the successful implementation of the UAE government’s Emiratisation policies and procedures.”
Through its 12th participation at Careers UAE, Al-Futtaim aims to attract qualified UAE national talent to 25 current roles and over 30 fresh graduate opportunities within its wide-ranging and diverse operational divisions including automotive, financial services, retail and real estate development.
In addition, the group is offering high-potential graduates the opportunity to take part in a structured ‘Future Leaders’ learning programme, aimed at preparing and developing the next generation of business leaders.
The 18-month programme is tailored to the candidates’ individual needs, allowing them to experience three functional work placements, gaining exposure to working alongside the group’s senior leaders; enabling them to build their knowledge and experience within a business context, and develop a progressive career path.
