The Emirates Institute of Finance (EIF) is gearing up for the third edition of the Ethraa Career Fair, in collaboration with the Sharjah Directorate of Human Resources, Nafis Programme, and the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
The two-day event, set to launch on October 9, aims to bring forth exciting career prospects for UAE nationals in the financial sector while promoting Emiratization in this critical industry.
Ethraa Career Fair
In its third edition, the Ethraa Career Fair is targeting the recruitment of more than 800 positions in the financial sector. These opportunities are available for high school graduates and individuals with bachelor’s degrees in fields such as business management, economics, accounting, and information technology.
The goal is to elevate Emiratization rates and nurture local talent for the future growth of the UAE’s economy.
Investing in Human Capital
Noura Alblooshi, General Manager of EIF, emphasized the importance of investing in human capital and building capabilities among Emirati youth.
The strategic focus aligns with the UAE’s visionary objectives of “We the UAE 2031” and the UAE Centennial 2071. Previous editions of the Ethraa Career Fair have already made a positive impact on job placements, and the upcoming edition is expected to continue this success.
A Strategic Priority
Engineer Omar Khalfan bin Huraimel Al Shamsi, Chairman of the Sharjah Directorate of Human Resources, reiterated that Emiratization remains a strategic priority.
The fair provides vast job opportunities for young Emirati leaders, allowing them to access competitive roles and enhance their skills while staying informed about labor market trends.
The partnership between EIF and the Sharjah Directorate of Human Resources is dedicated to serving national priorities and contributing to established objectives.
Empowering the Future
The job fair is an essential part of the “Ethraa” programme, aiming to bolster Emiratization within the financial sector. With a goal of creating 5,000 job opportunities by 2026, this initiative aligns perfectly with the government’s efforts to promote job growth and empower citizens, especially youth, in shaping the future of the UAE’s economy.
The Ethraa Career Fair is a vital platform that not only provides job opportunities but also fosters the development of local talent, in line with the UAE’s strategic vision for a thriving financial sector driven by Emirati nationals.
