Dubai Airports has launched a new initiative aimed at recruiting Emirati graduates as part of its Emiratization campaign. The ‘Future Faces Graduate Program’ is an annual scheme that will offer graduates opportunities to gain expertise in airport operations.
The 12-month training will include three rotational phases, giving trainees exposure to cross-functional roles. The initiative will also provide tailored career planning, as well as personalized feedback and guidance.
Upon completion, the final job offer will be given based on the completion of the requirements. Interested candidates can apply via Dubai Airports’ website.
The Executive Vice President (EVP) of Human Resources Development at Dubai Airports, Meshari Al Bannai, remarked that Dubai Airports is committed to increasing the national talent base by training the next generation of Emirati professionals and providing them with important tools to support their careers.
