Dubai based telecoms operator du has appointed Mohamed Alsaabri as the new senior director of national recruitment and development.

Alsaabri will oversee du's multi-phased emiratisation strategy, through which the company aims to support the UAE leaderships' vision of more Emiratis in the UAE workforce.

His responsibilities will include providing recruitment solutions catered to UAE nationals as well as overseeing du's various programmes such as summer internships, university sponsorship and scholarships, as well as managing the development, implementation and execution of all national recruitment operations and career events.

"For me, joining du is an additional way in which I can serve my country," said Alsaabri. "I am excited by the chance to work in the dynamic telecommunications industry and look forward to the challenge.

"Over the years I have undertaken several technical and non-technical training experiences related to the recruitment and development of UAE nationals, and I am proud now to apply my understanding of this continuous learning curve to enhancing Emiratisation at du. My aim is to take the division to the next level, with the commitment and support of my new colleagues." 

Alsaabri joins du from Dubai Aluminium Company (DUBAL), where he served as head of national programs and development.

"I would like to congratulate Mohamed on joining the du family," said Ibrahim Nassir, chief human capital and administration officer, du. "When seeking a new employee, we look for talented individuals who have shown passion for their field of expertise, and Mohamed's career clearly demonstrates his commitment to superior HR practices, as well as strong analytical prowess and a deep understanding of successful Emiratisation strategies. We are confident in his ability to attract high performing Emirati talent and in further solidifying our colleagues' leadership competencies."
