Carrefour UAE plans to recruit 2,500 Emiratis by 2026

Grocery retail major Carrefour, owned and operated by Majid Al Futtaim in the region, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with ADGM Academy (ADGMA) to empower UAE Nationals and boost the representation of Emirati talent in the retail sector. Through the collaboration, ADGM Academy will support Carrefour in reaching its’ objective of hiring 2,500 UAE nationals within its various functions by 2026. Carrefour UAE has already onboarded almost 1,000 Emiratis since 2021.

Commenting on the MoU, Bernardo Perloiro, Chief Operating Officer – GCC at Majid Al Futtaim Retail said, “A core priority on the national agenda is building human capital and fostering local talent, which is also something Carrefour upholds as vital to our success. This partnership with ADGM Academy is the latest step in our ambitious Emiratisation strategy as we continue to actively contribute to the socio-economic development and prosperity of the UAE.”

Over 400 Emiratis, as part of the Carrefour family, will embark on a transformative journey through ADGM Academy’s structured programmes and courses, gaining accessibility to a portfolio of global experts. The programme will start this month with a series of strategic sessions tailored for individual departments – such as the frontline, finance and management – under four defined strategic pillars. The primary objective of the MoU, witnessed by the Abu Dhabi Human Resources Authority (HRA), is to establish an educational centre of excellence that will focus on nurturing talent, empowering individuals and creating sustainable long-term careers within the private sector.
