Abdulla Balouma head of planning and recruitment section at the DHA, said:“ In 2014, we recruited more than 500 nurses and in 2015, we will continue our recruitment drive. Presently we are planning to recruit 260 administration, paramedic and nursing staff and this career fair presents an opportunity for us to recruit Emiratis in the health sector.”
