The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR) announced that the modernisation of the New Digital Cadre initiative has been completed.

The initiative included modernising the information technology in ministries and federal agencies.

In a statement to Aletihad, FAHR said that the scope of the project within the federal government has been expanded to include nine updated sub-categories, including artificial intelligence, data science, cybersecurity, technical project management, technical support, digital governance, quality assurance, design and implementation of services, and technical infrastructure. The authority also explained that 27 career paths fall under these categories, including 117 job positions.

Laila Obaid Al Suwaidi, Director General of FAHR, noted that this update comes within the framework of the recently launched New Digital Cadre initiative.

The Authority continues to update job descriptions, in cooperation with its strategic partners, to keep pace with rapid technological developments, enhance the competitiveness of national cadres, and attract the best talent to the federal government, she explained.

Maryam Al Zarouni, Director of the Government Human Resources Planning Department at FAHR, said: “The New Digital Cadre initiative is due to the tireless efforts of the Authority to find innovative solutions to some of the challenges facing human resources specialised in the digital field in the federal government.” 

The Authority worked to develop the initiative in partnership with the Communications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority, the Office of the Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy and Remote Work Applications, and the UAE Cybersecurity Council.

“The modernisation of digital information, technology, and data was based on in-depth analytical studies conducted by the Authority regarding the reality of the digital workforce, standard comparisons to identify the best global practises in this field, and consultative sessions with partners, managers, and HR and IT officials in relevant ministries and federal agencies to identify challenges, and to take into account their views and suggestions for improvement,” she added.
