500 Training and Job Opportunities for UAE Nationals in the Industrial Sector
The Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT) has announced a significant initiative to provide 500 training and job opportunities for UAE nationals within the industrial sector.
This initiative forms part of the Industrialist Programme, which the ministry launched in March this year, in cooperation with the Emirati Talent Competitiveness Council (Nafis) and the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE).
Aligning with National Strategies
The programme aligns with the objectives of the National Strategy for Industry and Advanced Technology – Operation 300 billion, and Nafis, which aim to empower Emirati talent with the essential skills to succeed within the industrial and advanced technology sectors.
This latest announcement follows a recent MoU signed between MoIAT, MoHRE, and the Emirati Talent Competitiveness Council (ETCC), aiming to enhance collaboration to create private sector jobs for Emiratis as part of the In-Country Value (ICV) programme.
Ghannam Al Mazrouei, secretary general of the ETCC, expressed satisfaction at the progress of these initiatives, noting that their outcomes have “exceeded all expectations”. By the end of the first quarter of this year, more than 66,000 Emiratis were working in the private sector. Furthermore, since the start of 2023, 10,500 Emiratis have joined the private sector, and over 16,000 private sector companies have employed citizens.
