A new central employment portal aimed at expats as well as citizens is now available online, connecting job seekers in all sectors with employers.

The Dubai Careers portal, developed by Smart Dubai, enables job seekers at all levels to find work in line with their qualifications and professional experience, according to officials at yesterday’s press release. The innovative platform uses smart tools to make searches easier, and the present access to literally hundreds of jobs in Dubai government entities will be expanded to include private sector jobs in the near future.

According to director of the project Aisha Bint Butti Bin Bishr, the new website will upgrade the concept of job-seeking in the emirate to that of deciding on a future career path as well as helping attract top talent and managing Dubai’s human resources to ensure successful careers. The new initiative aims to enable both the private and government sectors to make a positive contribution to the implementation of the emirate’s Dubai 10X initiative over the next 10 years.

Meanwhile, one very happy expat mom and one Yemeni salesman in Dubai are celebrating their awards of 1,000 dirhams for driving safely. Christine Mountian, mother of three and part-time teaching assistant, was picking up her laundry at a Dubai supermarket when she was approached by a policeman requesting sight of her driving license. Slightly concerned, she gave him her license, wondering why he was laughing.

A few moments later she found herself being introduced to the organisers of the Mobil 1 Gold Star Contest and told she’d just won the money. The prize forms part of a road safety initiative in co-operation with local police, and Christine’s excellent driving record during her 20 years in the emirate will result in a luxury Italian dinner for two with her husband. She’s thrilled to have won, and told local reporters Mobil 1are doing a very good thing as it’s likely to cut down on accidents.
