Energy Recruitment Live makes debut in Dubai
The UAE’s very first recruitment event specifically designed for the oil and gas industry will open its doors next week. Energy Recruitment Live will bring together some of the most influential companies in global energy, including Saudi Aramco, PDO and Topaz, providing a unique forum for job seekers.
The event, organised by exhibition and events specialists dmg :: events, will take place at Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel. As well as providing direct, and free of charge, access to key companies and individuals within the industry, there will also be HR consultants and personal development coaches on site to help job seekers work on their interview techniques and presentation.
International oil and gas job site, OilCareers.com, will also be present at the event. Having opened its first base in the Middle East in Dubai last year, the company believes that there is a real hunger within the recruitment sector of the oil and gas industry, on the side of both recruiter and job seeker.
Seeing almost one million visits to the site over the past month, with visits from the UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia all sitting within the top 10 countries internationally. OilCareers.com managing director, Mark Guest, sees significant potential for niche networking events such as this in the region.
He commented: “Recruitment events can often be generic and ineffective in delivering against the objectives of the recruiter and those seeking employment. The global energy industry is in a period of continuous growth and expansion across many parts of the world, and getting the right candidate into the right position is vital.”
Energy Recruitment Live will take place on Monday 23 May at Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel, from 4-10pm. Those wishing to attend can do so free of charge, with registration available on site.
