The second edition of the Industrialists Career Exhibition, hosted by the Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT), the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) and Emirati Talent Competitiveness Council (Nafis), and ADNOC from April 21 - 23 at the Abu Dhabi Energy Centre, concluded on Wednesday.

The first-of-its-kind exhibition offers industry and advanced technology career opportunities and immediate interviews for local talent.

More than 4,200 Emirati youth from across the UAE participated in the second edition, which provided more than 10,000 immediate interviews with more than 83 companies operating in the national advanced industry and technology sector.

The second edition of the exhibition announced 800 job opportunities, including 150 jobs for Emirati people of determination in private companies.

Omar Al Suwaidi, Undersecretary of MoIAT, said, "The exhibition is organised in line with the National Strategy for Industry and Advanced Technology, under the National In-Country Value (ICV) Programme, and in turn promotes the 'Make it in the Emirates' initiative. It is in line with the ministry's objectives to enhance the industrial sector's competitiveness, and its growth and contribution to economic diversification and sustainable economic development. The exhibition is an integrated platform bringing together government partners, the private sector, training entities and jobseekers to provide opportunities based on the needs of companies.

He added that this year's exhibition aimed to offer more than 800 immediate-hire jobs and diverse training programmes directly related to jobseeker interviews.

Al Suwaidi noted, "The ministry will continue to launch similar initiatives to enhance the participation of Emirati talent in industry and advanced technology, a key sector contributing to the UAE's GDP, in line with its efforts to become a global hub for sustainable and advanced industries."

Ghannam Al Mazrouei, Secretary-General of Nafis, said, "The results of the second edition of the Industrialists Career Exhibition reflect a key, positive impact, not only in the number of jobs offered and secured by our youth but also on the new generation's views on job fairs in response to the immediate hiring and train-to-hire opportunities provided, aligning their potential with industrial and service company requirements."

He noted, "We appreciate the efforts of all partners who contributed to these positive results, which support us in achieving our national objectives of promoting Emiratisation in the private sector and equipping our youth with the skills required in the job market. We call on companies to offer further rewarding career opportunities to support the UAE's economic growth."

Yaser Saeed Al Mazrouei, ADNOC Executive Director, People, Commercial and Corporate Support, said, "ADNOC is proud to have supported the second edition of the Industrialists Career Exhibition, which provided an important platform for leading companies in the private sector to recruit UAE Nationals and offer them pathways to build successful careers. Through ADNOC's ICV programme, we will continue to create highly skilled private sector job opportunities for UAE Nationals that enable them to contribute to the UAE's industrial and economic growth as we work towards a lower carbon future."

The MoIAT launched the Industrialist Programme last year to support the development of the national industrial sector by upskilling national talent and enabling them to secure career opportunities. The first edition of the exhibition was held in October 2023, with the participation of more than 3,000 Emirati youth. The event created more than 500 job opportunities for Emiratis in more than 73 companies and training opportunities provided by the ministry's partners.
