Top blue chip names in the public and private sector in the country will be participating in a recruitment fair that opens today in Abu Dhabi and are likely to offer spot interviews and job offers to candidates.

Recruiters from different sectors like the government, defence, safety & security, energy, oil & gas, industrial, manufacturing, maintenance, banks, financial services, tourism, hospitality, telecoms, IT, media and many more are expected to participate in the fair.

Companies like Abu Dhabi Airports, Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, Commercial Bank of Dubai, Dolphin Energy, Dubai Police, Etihad Rail, Etisalat, HSBC Bank Middle East, Mubadala Development Company, National Bank of Fujairah, and Daman among many others will be scouting for the right candidates.

If you are on the lookout for a job then head to the recruitment fair – Tawdheef 2015 – an annual event, scheduled to run from February 2 to 4, and held at Adnec pavilion in Abu Dhabi.

Candidates will get a chance to interact with the participating companies and gather information on their current and future recruitment needs. They can also apply for immediate vacancies and get advice on job-searching and putting together the perfect CV.

Organisers maintain that the event aims to offer opportunities to qualified UAE nationals and supports the UAE government’s Emiratisation efforts.

Tawdheef has successfully attracted thousands of jobseekers in its past editions and the participating companies have offered many job opportunities in a variety of sectors.

The fair is open to UAE nationals only. Last year more than 6,000 job vacancies were offered to UAE nationals.

The young Emirati candidates are urged to fully prepare themselves before attending career fairs in order to make the most of the opportunities available to them.
