Dubai Islamic Bank participates in 18th Careers UAE Exhibition


  • DIB’s move towards a Human Capital concept emphasized through participation in nation’s top career events
  • DIB’s commitment to Emiratisation initiatives in line with national agenda ambitions

Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB), the UAE’s largest Islamic Bank, will be participating in the 18th Edition of the Careers UAE Exhibition, taking place from 13th to 15th March 2018. The Exhibition is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, whose vision for Emiratisation forms an important part of the UAE’s federal government strategy.             

Held at the Dubai World Trade Centre, ‘Careers UAE’ is one the leading national platforms for young UAE job seekers to interact with leading recruiters and hiring managers from across the UAE. Last year’s edition saw approximately 18,000 visitors, 100 exhibitors and above 3000 vacancies available over the course of the three days.

Obaid Al Shamsi, Chief of Human Resources and Administration at Dubai Islamic Bank, commented on the Bank’s participation at the Exhibition: “As part of our drive towards building Human Capital rather than Human Resources,  we believe that participating in prestigious career fairs such as the Careers UAE provides us with the platform to tap into the Emirati workforce and lay grounds for interacting with the best and brightest UAE talent. We have moved to the concept of basing our recruitment process on a strategic qualitative approach rather than the conventional quantitative method of recruiting UAE Nationals. Hence, we are now concentrating on the development of employees to fulfil key roles within the bank. In light of this, we are focusing on the evaluations of employees’ performance including their prospects for as well as career development.”

“In 2017, our Emiratisation ratio reached over 44% - we have shifted towards adopting a more holistic approach on employee evaluations in order to prioritize career development. As the UAE’s National Agenda goals for 2021 is to increase the number of Emiratis in the public and private sector by tenfold, we believe that DIB holds a crucial role as the largest Islamic bank in the country to contribute to the success of such ambitions,” concluded Obaid Al Shamsi.
