Serco Middle East, a leading provider of public services has always been passionate about building a greater presence of National staff, particularly in leadership roles across its business and ultimately developing the knowledge and skills of National staff within all its sectors of operation.
To have a successful Nationalisation programme and be an employer of choice for National staff, Serco ensures that talented National staff are hired, trained, promoted and retained in such a way that skills and knowledge are transferred and thereby create a competent National workforce that can ultimately lead Serco Middle East.
A young and talented female Emarati named Atia Saeed is at the forefront of this vison. Atia started her journey as a Station Master in Serco’s rail operation and was later promoted to the role of Multimedia Artist where she employs her skills and passion for filmography. Her accolades include, the illustrious Medal of Excellence from the U.K. City and Guilds which secured her a nomination for the Lion's Award that she received in London in 2017.
Adding to her credit, Atia has been selected to be the member of the Youth Council for the private sector which was launched by Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation. The aim of the Youth Council is to aspire and assign the young National talent in serving the UAE Vision 2021 and to enable them to participate in decision making for the future.
David Greer, CEO of Serco Middle East said: “I am extremely proud of Atia and the achievement and international recognition she has received to date. She is an exemplary role model for not only all Emirati females in the company, but for all Serco Middle East staff, regardless of nationality, to continually push and challenge themselves to be the very best they can.”
Serco Middle East works closely with MOHRE on a number of initiatives to ensure its vision of Nationalisation is aligned and contributes towards the 2021 MOHRE vision. Accordingly, during 2017, Serco was recognised as one of the few International companies in the region as a Platinum Member of the Tawteen Club. Furthermore, Serco was also recognised as having the ‘Best Company Project in the field of Nationalisation’ in the Middle East for 2016 at the 33rd session of the Council of Ministers of Labor for Gulf Arab States.
Atia Saeed added “Serco gave me the opportunity and the necessary tools to develop my career, with equal prospects across all of its sectors. With its growing business and passion to support local talent, I encourage every UAE National to come under SERCO's umbrella and be part of its ongoing success.”
Serco Middle East has made it a priority to pursue its Emiratisation policy by continuously discovering, recruiting, and training local talent for its UAE offices. It employs comprehensive training and international skills development for staff of all nationalities with a particular focus on local staff development.
