Mawarid backs Emiratisation drive

DUBAI, February 18 2008: Mawarid Finance will be strongly participating in the National Career Exhibition being held at Expo Centre Sharjah on March 5-6, as part of the company's goal to be among the leading companies that support Emiratisation in the banking and finance sector.

Mawarid 's workforce currently comprises more than 30 per cent UAE nationals, rising to more than 70 per cent in executive positions, which is considered a high rate for such a relatively new company as Mawarid intensifies its efforts to increase the number of local staff.

Fatima bin Fahad, Manager Administration and HR at Mawarid says the company seeks to attract young nationals by offering employment opportunities and continuous training and development programmes.

She stressed that Mawarid has set optimistic plans to play an effective role in encouraging leadership and excellence among qualified Emiratis.

Among these is the Tamaiaz Award, recently launched with an annual budget of one million dirhams, aiming to enhance innovation among university students and graduates.

Experts from different departments of the company will be present at the Sharjah expo to provide information and advice and answer questions related to the jobs market within the private banking and finance sector.

The company will also promote the Tamaiaz award so as to attract more participants and stimulate and reward excellent projects at the beginning of their careers.

Mawarid Finance is a private joint stock company established in Dubai, UAE, towards the end of 2006 with a paid-up capital of one billion dirhams. The company plans to introduce a new vision within the Islamic finance sector to both retail and corporate customers in the region.
