Emaar Hospitality Group, a subsidiary of developer Emaar Properties, said on Wednesday it expects to create more than 5,300 jobs in the next five years across the UAE.

The company said it is focusing on hiring and nurturing the talents of UAE nationals for jobs in the hospitality sector, and has put into place ambitious strategies and plans to drive Emiratisation across all functions.

It said in a statement that these goals will also be achieved through partnerships with key government entities and departments that support Emiratisation within the hospitality industry.

In the UAE, Address Hotels + Resorts will offer more than 2,868 jobs, upcoming Vida hotels will present 1,846 career opportunities, and Rove Hotels, developed as a joint venture of Meraas Holding and Emaar Properties, will present 591 career opportunities.

Aseem Kapoor, corporate director of human resources at Emaar Hospitality Group, said: “We are emerging as one of the largest providers of jobs in the hospitality sector in the UAE. With hospitality professionals from across the world working with us, we take pride in offering a world-class work environment that enables them to progress in their careers.

“While we will continue to promote and nurture a multi-cultural work environment, one of our focal points will be to attract more Emirati and national talent to the industry – given the superb value they can deliver, with their local knowledge and skills – and we are committed to ensuring that our team members achieve professional and personal success.

"Job creation for youth is a top priority for governments, and through our hotel projects, we are not only supporting this vision but also supporting the economic diversification goals.”

Emaar Hospitality Group said it is creating jobs across its supply chain – from guest facing and heart-of-house functions to administrators, marketing, sales, finance, HR, logistics, and other professionals.

Currently, Emaar Hospitality Group has 13 operational hotels and four serviced residences in Dubai under three hotel brands – the premium luxury Address Hotels + Resorts, the upscale lifestyle Vida Hotels and Resorts and the contemporary midscale Rove Hotels.
