Emirates Global Aluminium directly and indirectly creates tens of thousands of jobs in the United Arab Emirates and internationally.
Today some 30,000 people work within the broader aluminium sector in the UAE, including over 7,000 who work at EGA.
We have focused on the development of our people for decades.
EGA’s workforce includes almost 1,200 UAE Nationals, as part of our contribution to the ‘UAE Vision 2021’ goal of harnessing the full potential of the UAE’s human capital.
More than 40 per cent of those holding the top 280 positions in the company as well as more than a third of the more than 1,800 people in EGA’s supervisory positions and above are UAE Nationals.
EGA is also pioneering the role of UAE National women in heavy industry.
In total more than 16 per cent of our staff working at supervisory level and above are female.
As a company operating in a heavy industry, EGA is a particularly significant employer of professionals in science, technology, engineering and mathematics related disciplines.
We employ more than 1,500 professionals in these fields, including some 500 UAE Nationals. We also sponsor education in science, technology, education and mathematics amongst other disciplines as well as delivering internal training.
In an industry where competitiveness is driven by continuous improvement, EGA has long placed a premium on retaining valuable talent.
The fact that over 600 employees have worked for EGA and its predecessor companies for at least 25 years demonstrates this, and every year we celebrate the staff who reach this milestone.
