Dubai, 17 May 2016: The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is home to millions of strong work force but off late, the country is witnessing a rise in the demand for skilled workers. In alignment with the UAE government’s vision, both public and private sector organisations are playing their role in bridging this gap. One such organisation in the private sector is UAE Exchange, the leading global remittance, foreign exchange and payment solutions brand.

“Remittance industry is one of the major contributors to the economy of the UAE. Inspite of the slump in oil prices and global economic volatility, this industry has steadily grown and offers various growth opportunities. As one of the major remittance brands, our focus has been to create a knowledgeable and competent talent pool that is always a step closer to its customers across communities. Taleem, one of our popular internship and training programme, has always attracted Emiratis. It helps the Emirati students to gain intensive on-the-job training, enhance industry knowledge, develop professional skills as well as earn a stipend and certificate after completion of the programme,” said Y.Sudhir Kumar Shetty, President, UAE Exchange.

Participating for the 9th time in the Careers UAE 2016, UAE Exchange reiterates its commitment towards the government’s vision of Emaratisation. It plans to recruit 150 UAE nationals through this platform for its branch operations, spread across the seven emirates. The brand also offers the Emirati with the convenience of choosing their job location, mentorship by experienced senior staff, practical training programme in Arabic and English all-year-round, employee engagement and skill development programmes among others.

Known for their customer centricity and excellence in service, UAE Exchange was recently conferred with the Dubai Quality Gold Award, making it the first ever remittance brand to win such a coveted award. The brand was also ranked among the top best employers to work with in the UAE by Great Place to Work Institute®
