Qatar Airways hosted an open recruitment day recently for Qatari nationals at its Recruitment Centre in Tower 2, part of its Al Darb Qatarisation programme. Students and graduates were given the chance to meet with employees and explore the many different career pathways available at Qatar Airways.

Now on its sixth year, the Al Darb Qatarisation programme presents young nationals with local and international career opportunities through eight different programmes and 35 different majors across the airline’s various departments.

Qatar Airways Senior Vice President for Human Resources Nabeela Fakhri said that developing and nurturing young national talent remain high on the agenda at Qatar Airways.

The Al Darb initiative invites Qataris to join our award-winning team and use their talent and skills to support the rapid expansion of the national carrier. The aim is to empower these young students to succeed in a chosen career path with Qatar Airways by providing them access to knowledge, skills development, and valuable experience.’

Qatar Airways’ Al Darb Qatarisation Programme aims to develop the skills of young Qataris, allowing them to gain experience through Qatar Airways’ network of offices around the world. Currently, the programme features 35 majors and eight programmes which include the following:

  • Summer Internship Programme
  • National Scholarship Programme
  • Cadet Pilot Programme
  • Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Programme
  • Graduate Development Programme
  • Airport Operations Programme
  • Aviation Management Programme
  • Jossor Programme

It is a tremendous project that brings benefits and opportunities at a variety of different levels and across various aviation-related fields. Visitors received first-hand information about the Al Darb programme and were given the opportunity to meet and hear from current and previous students about their experiences.
