Qatar Airways proudly welcomed 47 Qatari graduates to join the Al Darb Qatarisation programme by hosting a Jossor induction event on 12 - 13 September at the Oryx Rotana Hotel. The Jossor event is aimed at supporting new graduates to help them adapt and navigate easily through the organisation and introduce them to the world of aviation, as they settle into the various departments of the national carrier of the State of Qatar.

During the induction event, nationals were briefed about the various departments and subsidiaries within the Qatar Airways Group. Additionally, they had the opportunity to interact with various heads of departments and ask them questions. The developers were then taken to QR Cargo’s headquarters, where they had a unique opportunity to take a closer look at intricate process of how cargo is handled, enabling the smooth and successful operation of the group’s cargo business.

Qatar Airways Senior Vice President Human Resources, Ms. Nabeela Fakhri, said: “We are proud to once again have Qatari nationals join Qatar Airways. It is our pleasure and pride to introduce fresh graduates of different majors to the aviation industry. Al Darb is an Arabic term which means ‘The Pathway’ and, through this programme, we aim to be the pathway that helps nationals to navigate through different departments to fulfill their ambitions and steer them towards becoming leaders of the national airline. This is part of our commitment to supporting the Qatar National Vision 2030, which aims to increase the number of Qataris in the workforce while contributing to the country’s development.

“Through the Al Darb Programme, graduate developees are given significant projects, enhancing their professional experience and learning, which will support their future positions at the airline. This programme is a wonderful example of the national airline’s continuous support for the next generation of leaders in the country, and enables graduates to explore the many opportunities available in Qatar Airways.”

The Al Darb Qatarisation Programme allows developees to be aware of the company’s policies, regulations, work environment and expectations while also gaining exposure to the many facets of the aviation industry. Since the inauguration of Al Darb programme, the airline has equipped them with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in their chosen field in the airline.
