09 Dec 2012
Al Ansari Exchange, a leading foreign exchange and worldwide remittance company in the UAE, has received an Appreciation Award from Abu Dhabi University in recognition of its strong support to the government’s Emiratisation program and for its proactive efforts to hire and train UAE nationals. Al Ansari Exchange’s Emiratisation drive has led to a total of 175 UAE nationals being hired in 2012 alone, while the company’s Foundation Training Program has provided specialized training to Emiratis on key subjects such as Product Knowledge, Quality Customer Service, Anti-Money Laundering and Preventing Fraud and Counterfeit Money.
To complement its ongoing efforts to attract UAE nationals, Al Ansari Exchange has also been actively participating in key recruitment and professional networking events such as Careers UAE, the leading recruitment, education and training event exclusively for UAE nationals. Al Ansari Exchange has earlier announced that it aims to expand its localisation program by 10 per cent in 2012.
Rashed Ali Al Ansari, General Manager of Al Ansari Exchange, said, “In support of the UAE’s Emiratisation strategy, Al Ansari Exchange has been actively engaged in various initiatives that aim to open more exciting opportunities for UAE nationals to establish a successful career in the financial sector. This year, we have further stepped up our nationalisation drive as we have already hired a total of 175 UAE nationals, who now hold key positions in almost all departments and across Al Ansari Exchange branches nationwide. The Appreciation Award from Abu Dhabi University therefore validates the commitment of Al Ansari Exchange to discover new talents and harness the full potential of UAE citizens to become successful professionals in the financial sector.”
