DUBAI: Moving further with its smart government initiative, Dubai has launched its jobs app – mJobs, bringing all government vacancies on the fingertips of prospective candidates.
Currently, 18 government departments are on board with more than 200 jobs up for grabs. The app is open for all residents and citizens of the UAE who can register and apply for suitable jobs at respective departments, Gulf News reported.
Another 40 Dubai Government entities and departments are expected to post their vacancies through mJobs in the next phase.
“We are trying to bring all government departments on board, allowing people access to all job vacancies in the Government of Dubai on a single window. This is designed to make the government more accessible to people, and make them happy,” Ahmad Bin Humaidan, Director-General, Dubai Smart Government (DSG), reportedly said.
The application is currently available on App Store, and will soon be available on other mobile platforms as well, the report said.
“mJobs is a smart app to find government jobs in Dubai through smart devices. It enables fresh graduates or experienced professionals to register for free, search for vacancies in 18 Dubai government departments that have joined the app, as well as enable them to apply too,” Bin Humaidan reportedly said.
Reportedly, the app also enables applicants to log in using Facebook, and share job vacancies with friends through multiple channels.
Applicants can upload profiles, CVs and photos through Dropbox and other smart apps and keep track of their application status, the news portal reported.
The mJobs app was developed by the Government Resources Planning Systems Department (GRPS) at DSG as a distinguished smart solution. The app has both Arabic and English interfaces and users who are currently registered with DSG’s eJob portal www.ejob.ae can synchronize their existing account on mJobs, Gulf News reported.
Job vacancies can be searched through department, publication date, categories and keywords. Vacancies can also be added to job basket to view and apply later, the report said.
