Following an agreement signed between Tanmia and Dubai Police recently, the police organised a training session at the Dubai Institute for Human Resources Development for the 20 job-seekers, some of whom had high school certificates in computer applications.

Trainees expressed gratitude to Dubai Police and Tanmia for giving them the opportunity to improve their computer skills, which they noted had become a prerequisite for any job.

Moza Isa, Employment Officer with Tanmia, said the Authority had intimated all the registered job-seekers about the open day. "We received confirmation from 20 applicants from different educational levels and specialities," she said.

A significant number of job-seekers had applied for jobs with the Standard Chartered Bank under a year long scheme signed between Tanmia and the bank. "The bank has specified the dates for tests in English language and mathematics," she said.

Moza Saif from the bank's Human Resources Department, said 13 applicants had already been offered jobs after passing the tests and interviews held for job-seekers last month. They would be joining the bank next month. Appointment formalities were in progress in the case of other candidates, she said.

The bank's emphasis has been on understanding each individual, their likes and dislikes, what they enjoy doing and what turns them off. This comes from the bank's strength-based approach, "where we are keen to identify employee's talents and develop them for bigger and new challenges."
