Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) on Thursday announced that the company recruited more than 100 UAE nationals in 2021. The average age of the recruits was 24 years old.

At the end of 2021, EGA’s in-focus Emiratisation rate was around 40 percent. When considering the high number of blue-collar positions in heavy industry, EGA has one of the highest Emiratisation rates of any major company.

Almost 40 percent of those holding the top 280 positions at EGA are UAE nationals.

Abdulnasser bin Kalban, CEO of EGA, said, “We are delighted to have welcomed over 100 UAE nationals in 2021, the vast majority young people at the start of their careers whom we hope to develop and retain for decades to come. EGA has focused on Emiratisation for more than 40 years, building our talent pipeline for the future and contributing to the development of the UAE’s economy.”
