Emirati women employees in demand in the private sector

Study shows Emirati women employees are hard working and keen to prove their skills

According to a report in Gulfnews.com, Emirati women employees are in high demand in the private sector because they are hard working and always keen to prove their potential, according to a study by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) released on Wednesday.

The study shows women have been a vital part of Emirati society throughout the country’s history. They used to work in the pearl and fishing industries in addition to fulfilling the family’s agricultural needs and raising children.

We are aware of the importance of female labour forces among UAE nationals, which is why we always make sure that they get the chance to hunt the job they are looking for in a more comfortable atmosphere,” said Hayete Jemai, director of the Tawdheef exhibition.

According to the NBS, the unemployment rate among Emiratis has reached 20.8 per cent while the Abu Dhabi Tawteen Council said earlier the number of Emirati jobseekers had reached 13,000 annually, 80 per cent of whom are female, most with a high standard of education.
