Expo 2020 Dubai has launched a new career portal making it easier for candidates to apply for jobs ranging from entry to director level.

The Expo 2020 team currently comprises 850 employees, 454 of whom are directly employed by Expo 2020. The remainder include external consultants engaged by Expo 2020 to deliver the large-scale event, which will be the first World Expo to take place in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region.

Rita Penteado, director, Human Resources, Workforce & Volunteers at Expo 2020, said: “We are looking for ambitious people who want to create a global impact and work in a fast-paced environment where expectations are high.

“Expo 2020 Dubai is a unique, time-critical project and our key objective is to not only deliver an exceptional Expo but also create a compelling and long-lasting legacy. We need people who are flexible and adaptable, who like to be challenged, and who share our core values of integrity, cooperation, respect, humility and excellence.

“Even if the positions currently available on the Expo 2020 career portal do not suit applicants’ skill sets, they can still register and upload their résumés. Expo 2020’s requirements are continuously evolving and growing so we will no doubt need capabilities in the future that we don’t yet know about.”

She said the team is committed to delivering an unforgettable experience with 25 million visits expected, including an unprecedented 70 per cent from outside the UAE.

Of those directly employed by Expo 2020, 51 percent are female and 129 staff members are under the age of 30, she added.

Expo 2020’s career portal currently features vacancies in Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Marketing and Communication, Design, Operations, Legal and Commercial.
