The United Arab Emirates has been home for many Airswift professionals for nearly 10 years across our 2 offices, based in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Therefore, we are very proud to support the governments interest in Emiratisation and help support locals in building their careers.
At Airswift, we focus on Emiratisation across the seven emirates and all sectors (government, public and private sectors) and seniority levels from fresh grad to C level.
We support Emiratisation and encourage our clients to consider strong UAE Nationals, even if they are not necessarily looking.
In 2018, UAE Nationals have formed just 8% of the UAE workforce. The number is projected to further dip to 6% in 2020 and to 3% by 2030
One of MOHRE’s main focus is Emiratisation in the private sector, with less than 2% of Emirati’s in the private sector. We also offer our candidates CV and English support, if needed. As although we appreciate that Arabic is the UAE’s native language, to join the private sector a good level of written and speaking English is required. We also work with companies who are recruiting UAE nationals only and help them reach targets set by the government, in line with their plans for Emiratisation.
Feel comfortable enough to be completely honest with us! Everything is completely confidential – we know that moving jobs can be difficult and that people are well connected in their sectors in the UAE, so you may not want anyone finding out. You don’t need to worry with us, we won’t spec out your CV or pass on your details without your permission.
Airswift allows you to build a strong relationship with your recruiter. Recruitment in the Emiratisation sector is completely 360, this allows the recruiter to access the personality and characteristics of the clients and candidates, to guarantee that it will be a good match. You will also only work with one high quality recruiter, from the initial phone call to your first day in your new job, this will allow you to build trust and be completely open with each other.
We genuinely want to help find your ideal job, so we will always put your best interests first!
The employment of Emirati’s remains at less than 2% in the private sector, which comprises more than 62% of the total jobs in the country

Bethany has specialised in Emiratisation since she first moved from the UK to the UAE. Originally she was meant to specialise in a different sector, however extremely early on she noticed that a lot of companies were looking for UAE Nationals. This led to her Emiratisation desk, and knowledge, growing very organically and quickly. As Bethany’s network of UAE Nationals grew, she decided not to limit herself to one particular sector within Emiratisation, the main reason behind this was to help as many UAE Nationals as possible. She has a genuine interest in supporting the governments vision for Emiratisation, as well as the UAE culture, values and people.
