ADIA plays a key role in developing future leaders, both to drive its own success and that of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
We employ a balanced mix of senior managers who have been with us over many years, top
international talent from some of the world’s most respected financial institutions, and a steady influx of bright new recruits sourced from local and international universities.
To achieve such a mix ADIA has a strategy designed to attract and recruit the best talent globally.
All candidates are put through an assessment programme that looks at multiple factors and is
centred around the ADIA culture. This helps potential employees to decide whether ADIA is the right
organisation for them, and helps us to assess if they are suited to ADIA.
We also work closely with local universities to select top graduates interested in careers in global finance. ADIA also offers a small number of scholarships each year at international universities for students who meet strict academic criteria and who we see as potential leaders of the future. In addition, we receive a large number of applications, which we carefully screen, and employ recruitment agencies around the world to attract people with the skills and experience for specific roles, and who we believe will thrive in ADIA’s culture.
Our targeted recruitment methods, as part of our overall HR strategy, have ensured that ADIA’s employee turnover was just 8% in 2011.
