Emiratization


Leading UAE-based airline

Overview

’Jobscan has been associated with a UAE-based national airline for over three years. The client corporation is a full-service award-winning international carrier flying to over 60 countries.

This is an initiative by the airline to incorporate and increase the participation of Emiratis in various functional roles within the airline, with tight guidelines on the level of education, communication skills and leadership qualities. There was also a plan for grooming successful individuals into future managerial candidates, and to fulfil roles within administrative functions such as Finance, Revenue, Logistics and Airport Management.

The Jobscan team in Dubai and Abu Dhabi was able to propose candidates with the requisite qualifications, experience and skills sets by partnering with universities and alumni associations and by using social media campaigns to attract interested talent. In-house assessment centres were created to evaluate and appraise fresh graduates on personality, communication, team management and leadership skills. A shortlist of candidates for the interviews was also prepared, based on the expectations of the employer.

Results

A successful collaboration with the recruitment managers and talent acquisition team, led to the placement of over 250 Emirati personnel, as well as seamless on-boarding of the candidates, ensuring that the client was able to achieve their objective of hiring a required number of Emiratis to groom as future managers within the growing airline.

  • I have known JobScan for over 16 years, every industry I led the Talent Acquisition function, they were my partner, providing me with an outstanding service and meeting my challenging timeline every time. They are a subject matter experts, I tested them last with sourcing professional talent both expat and UAE nationals, and they have not failed me, they always impress me with speed of delivery, quality and efficiency.

    I had an unexpected project with business requirements to complete in 45 days, hiring over 100 in less than 3 months in line with our 5 year target projection. This was a challenge given the resources required to meet this, I entrusted Jobscan to manage the end to end project and they delivered on time. This was very refreshing experience.

    They are a true business partner, reliable and efficient.

  • I have dealt with Jobscan for over 9 years. What I like most about Jobscan, both as a client and as a candidate is the quality of unmatched service provided. Jobscan provides competitive employment opportunities to candidates and it also provides candidates with professional and friendly support all the way to successful placement. One reason that I personally prefer to deal with Jobscan is the follow up. They always follow up on the candidate’s status, thus keeping them well informed of every step towards the job placement.

    As a client, Jobscan is professional, takes time to fully understand our organizations’ requirements and as a result, they are always able to recruit high caliber people who are genuinely interested and completely match the positions. Jobscan truly offers efficient service. With capable consultants, Jobscan never ceases to impress us with how quick they respond to our requirements and the quality of recruits they provide.I would not hesitate to recommend Jobscan to any company looking for consultancy or recruitment.
