Dubai Metro to have 30 to 50 per cent Emirati employees

10/06/2009 06:02 PM | Staff Report

Dubai: Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will have between 30 to 50 per cent Emirati staff for Dubai Metro as part of its emiratisation campaign, said a senior official.

"The RTA has got in place an integrated plan to Emiratise various jobs and upgrade the qualifications of the national manpower across the RTA in general and in Dubai Metro in particular," said Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the RTA.

He said the RTA has also launched 'Qiyadi' programme, which is being carried out in association with Mohammad Bin Rashid Centre for Leadership Development; a globally leading programme in the field of preparing young leaders to assume their responsibilities in the business development.

The programme aims at improving the abilities and skills of RTA’s Emirati employees and grooming them for shouldering the responsibilities of higher job positions.

"As for Emiratisation of Dubai Metro jobs, the RTA has made it mandatory for the Metro Operator, Serco Co., to have at least 30 per cent Emiratis in its staff within the next five years," said Al Tayer.

According to the RTA’s contract with the Serco, some 583 Emiratis will take up employment in various Dubai Metro jobs over the first five years. They will include: 71 employees at higher administrative positions, 430 will be engineers in the field of health, safety, environment and quality control (HSEQ) as well as operation and maintenance fields, 74 as customer service employees, and eight in support services posts such as human resources, marketing and finance.

By the end of 2009, 218 Emiratis will be employed, 26 of whom in senior management positions, eight in support services posts such as human resources, marketing and finance, 74 as front-end customer service employees, 110 engineers in HSEQ posts as well as operation and maintenance.

Around 125 jobs will be provided for Emiratis in Dubai Metro in 2010; 15 in senior management positions, 110 engineers in HSEQ fields as well as operation and maintenance.

From 2011 to 2013, Emiratis will be employed at a rate of 80 employees per annum, 30 of whom in senior management positions and 210 in HSEQ posts, as well as operation and maintenance.

Last Sunday, RTA launched an open career day for employment in Dubai Metro and about 200 applications have been received from applicants.
