Sharjah: Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, has launched the new human resources policy for Sharjah, in a meeting with several senior officials of the emirate.
The meeting held at Dr. Sultan Al Qasimi Centre was attended by Sheikh Mohammed bin Humaid Al Qasimi, Chairman of the Department of Statistics and Community Development, Mr. Afaf Ibrahim Al Marri, Head of the Sharjah Social Services Department, Dr. Mansour Bin Nassar, Head of the Legal Department of the Government of Sharjah, Mr. Omar bin Huraimel Al Shamsi, Head of the Sharjah Human Resources Directorate, and several other officials of the Human Resources Department.
The Sharjah Ruler declared that the new policy will apply to the 2,249 jobseekers who were employed in 2022 and the 2,417 who will be employed in 2023 and were registered in Sharjah’s Human Resources databases in 2019 or earlier.
Sheikh Sultan pointed out the conditions according to which the job seeker is required to register in the databases of the Human Resources Department, including proof of unemployment, not receiving a pension, considering applicants’ age, and several other criteria. The Sharjah Ruler also stated that the department will communicate with job seekers to provide jobs for those who tick the boxes.
As a result of the new policy, finding job opportunities in Sharjah government agencies in 2023 will be through three approaches, job replacement, early retirement for those affected by some health conditions provided that the government takes care of the financial differences in the pension, and incompetent employees replacement.
Furthermore, Sheikh Sultan stressed the establishment of committees to study the cases of women who are advanced in age and seeking jobs, which are 1,700 cases. The circumstances and conditions in cases that require subsidy will be verified, along with studying the case of retirees other than those receiving the salaries of the Sharjah government to raise their wages to at least $4,764 (AED17,500).
In addition, the ruler of Sharjah also praised the efforts of all committees and work teams that collected and sorted data and framed proposals.
