75 beneficiaries of temporary contract jobs

Yesterday, the Department of Social Services in Sharjah hosted the first employment fair at the Sheraton Sharjah Hotel, as part of its plans to support its affiliated companies eligible for social benefits and develop their livelihoods to achieve a decent life.

The director of the Empowerment Office in the department, Amna Al Hammadi, said that employment through exhibitions has several goals, namely: to provide decent care to the families of the beneficiaries, to provide opportunities that guarantee them a decent life and to take responsibility for the private sector, as it guarantees the beneficiaries to overcome life difficulties.

Al Hammadi added to “Emirates Today” that the exhibition will serve the beneficiaries of the department, and by 2023 there will be job fairs in the central and eastern regions and in the city of Sharjah, targeting orphans, unemployed and low-income people.

She stated that there are 71 beneficiaries of the Empowerment Forum and that there are 119 people on the waiting list who are eligible for social benefits, noting that about 75 beneficiaries from Sharjah and the Eastern and Central regions have benefited from working to temporary contracts.

Maryam Ahmed Al Hammadi, director of the Intaj Center of the Ministry of Social Services, said the “Intaj” initiative aims to empower families who benefit from social security so that they have their own home projects, adding: “Our role is to qualify and train productive families to have valuable products.”.

She added: “We support five packs of professions and cooperate with the Ministry of Economic Development by offering the beneficiaries a 50% discount once the project license is obtained.”

And she continued: “The (Intaj) program has two types of beneficiaries: those who are in the training and rehabilitation phase, and their number is about 800 people, and those who have received an accreditation license of 87.”
