Qatar Airways has seen a year-on-year increase of national employees joining the award-winning airline through its Al Darb Qatarisation programme, embarking on successful fulltime careers as part of the country’s national carrier.

In 2017, 143 nationals were employed by the airline, through its highly-successful Al Darb Qatarisation programme, which was initiated in 2012. Since its launch, the programme has attracted nationals, including students, graduates and experienced professionals from different career paths to find their place in the aviation industry. With the wide range of career opportunities offered at Qatar Airways, the airline enables every national to meet their career aspirations and become ambassadors for the airline and for The State of Qatar.

Qatar Airways Senior Vice President for Human Resources Nabeela Fakhri said they are proud to be a leading employer in Qatar.

As Qatar’s national carrier, we have always been committed in our national duty of meeting the Qatar National Vision 2030, to develop and invest in local talent and build a long-term national workforce.

Qatar Airways has invested and developed the unique Al Darb Qatarisation programme, and the programme is essential in supporting and nurturing the development of talented nationals in their career paths as leaders of the future for both Qatar and our national airline.’

National employees enter the airline through one of the eight educational and training programmes offered. All eight Al Darb Qatarisation programmes have seen a continuous increase of national employees since 2012.

In 2017, the Graduate Development programme saw a total of 40 nationals offered full-time jobs at the airline. In addition, 15 nationals  successfully completed their IATA Aviation Diplomas.

Qatar Airways also offers numerous training courses and a dedicated performance coach to help newly-hired nationals integrate seamlessly into their new roles and take charge of their career paths. The airline looks forward to welcoming nationals from all fields in 2018, to join the carrier and choose the development opportunity that suits their ambitions.
