Career opportunities

One of our core objectives is to turn DUBAL into the employer of choice for work and productivity, especially for UAE Nationals. Acknowledging that one of our company's greatest assets is our employees, we placed strong emphasis on the contribution, qualities and skills of people. Accordingly, our Human Resources Department focuses primarily on ensuring the continual availability and enhancement of human skills and capabilities to meet the business challenges at all times. Several major systems and processes are place to support this, notably manpower planning, job description and job evaluation systems; recruitment and succession planning processes; a performance management system; and ongoing skills training and development.

In addition, DUBAL's compensation policy and strategies are designed to ensure maximum retention of employees. The competitiveness of this policy is reviewed regularly through participation in formal annual surveys. There is also a performance-based reward system, which benefits all employees.

Other initiatives to retain talent include on-site accommodation for non-supervisory employees, Haj pilgrimage sponsorship for Muslim employees, sports/leisure facilities, a CEO Special Recognition award and long-service recognition. Open communication is encouraged via several platforms, including Voice Your Opinion (internal satisfaction survey), Potlines (in-house journal) and the DUBAL Suggestion Scheme.

Commitment to Nationalisation

DUBAL's long-term goal is to increase the proportional Emiratisation of the company through training, succession planning and professional development. We offer dynamic career opportunities in diverse areas of expertise, giving UAE Nationals - whether school leavers, diploma-holders or graduates - abundant personal choices across the full employment spectrum.

Recruitment events

DUBAL is a regular participant at the annual Careers UAE Careers Fair organised by the Dubai World Trade Centre. We also participate actively in career and/or employer days at universities and colleges across the UAE.

In addition, open days are hosted at our Jebel Ali smelter site.

Expatriate talent

Our aim, across all levels of our company, is to attract, recruit and retain the best talent available. Where appropriate, this entails employing expatriate talent with relevant qualifications, knowledge and experience. At the end of December 2012, about 38 different nationalities were represented within our 3,800-strong workforce.


DUBAL provides scholarships to eligible students, enabling them to pursue higher education at university level (with preference being given to UAE Nationals). After completing their studies, students are committed to remain with DUBAL for a period of time equivalent to the period of the scholarship received. Read more
