British bank Barclays is hiring both UAE nationals and expatriates to fill a range of vacancies in its Dubai and Abu Dhabi branches.
The bank is currently recruiting for the positions of Teller, Assistant Manager (MI & Analytics), AVP – Corporate Customer Middle Office, Operations Analyst (Trade), Operations Graduate, Team Leader – Mortgage Services, Project Manager, Operations Analyst, Call Agents and Quality Analyst, Operations Analyst for Retail, Operations Trainer and Risk & Control Analyst.
All the positions – which are entry to mid-level category - are based in Dubai except for the Teller which is based in the capital Abu Dhabi.
The above-mentioned jobs will close on April 2, 2013, the British bank said.
Though the bank is hiring in the UAE to grow its Middle East operations, the London-headquartered bank is slashing jobs in other parts of the world. Earlier this year it announced 3,700 job cuts globally to reduce $2.6 billion costs.
Makram Azar, global vice-chairman for investment banking at Barclays, told Reuters in an interview last year that the Middle East would be a key growth area for investment banking in coming years.
Bloomberg News said London-based bank employees about 1,000 people in the region and expects to hire about 100 more in 2013.
