Emiratization Services by RFS Recruitment Agency

Redefining The Emirati Workforce.

Emiratization is an initiative taken by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government to employ its citizens implicitly and efficiently in the public and private sectors to strengthen their economy further. It allows UAE nationals to have a better opportunity to compete with their global counterparts that are present in UAE.

UAE nationals, through Emiratization, get included in the national economy positively and strategically. In return, the Government of UAE provides several benefits to the local and foreign companies operating in UAE if they follow the requirements of Emiratization. Any UAE company with more than 50 employees must hire at least 2% of Emirati employees before the year 2023 concludes. ...

The Government of UAE aims to hold at least 10 % of the total private sector jobs by 2025, exclusively for its citizens. The program has been in place since 2006, and the results can be seen in the economic activities within the public sector. The private sector still needs to catch up, with citizens struggling to get into the private sector workforce that offers a good rewarding employment.

There is a general impression that Emiratis are treated much better if compared with the immigrants within the UAE. However, due to the Government's social security payments, many locals prefer not to work at less rewarding jobs. Therefore, unemployment is increasing at a noticeable pace; in Abu Dhabi, many qualified Emiratis are looking for a job, and the job market could be more promising but unfortunately it’s not at the moment.

Qualified emiratization recruitment firms operating in the UAE, like RFS HR Consultancy, have placed Emiratis in companies that intend to become ‘Good Employers’ within the UAE market. We are placing highly skilled Emiratis in private businesses in top-tier industries. And we are proud to be recognized as a platform to ease up organizational knowledge sharing among the corporations and the national workforce of the UAE, becoming a key player in redefining the Emirati workforce.
