Dubai Airports has launched a new project aimed at hiring Emirati graduates as part of its Emiratization agenda. Graduates will be able to acquire skills in airport operations through an annual programme dubbed “Future Faces Graduate Program.”
The 12-month curriculum will feature three rotational stages to introduce students to cross-functional positions. Together with personalised career planning, the project will provide one-on-one feedback and guidance.
Following completion, the final job offer will be made depending on the fulfilment of the conditions. Applying can be done on the Dubai Airports website.
Meshari Al Bannai, Dubai Airports’ Executive Vice President (EVP) of Human Resources Development, emphasised that the company is committed to developing the next generation of Emirati professionals and providing them with critical resources to improve their careers.
