Dubai Duty Free currently employs around 6,000 staff of 50 different nationalities and is one of the premier “employers of choice” in the UAE. This is evidenced by the fact that the company received more than 81,500 unsolicited job applications during the last year.
The company has a long standing policy of “promotion from within”, resulting in only two entry-level positions being recruited for externally – Sales Assistant in the Retail Operations area and Stores Assistant in the Warehouse environment.
All other back-office support functions (Marketing, HR, Finance, Purchasing, IT, secretarial, etc) and supervisory positions are recruited and developed internally, while the vast majority of managerial level vacancies are also filled from inside the organisation. This policy provides for the maximum possible career growth and development opportunities for Dubai Duty Free staff and is one of the reasons why the company has an enviable staff turnover ratio and high levels of employee loyalty and commitment.
