UAE, April 27, 2015 - In implementation of the smart government and smart city initiative of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai; and the ‘Dubai Government Towards 2021’ initiative of HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council; Dubai Smart Government Department (DSG), together with Careers UAE 2015, has launched the mJobs app on the Apple Store.
This was announced during the press conference held by DSG on Monday, 27 April, at its headquarters in HH Dubai Ruler's Court and attended by H.E. Ahmad Bin Humaidan, DSG Director General, Wesam Al Abbas Lootah, Assistant Director General, Marwan Bin Haidar, Executive Director of Planning and Development, directors of departments and sections and a number of media representatives to highlight the new app.
mJobs is a smart app for locating government jobs in Dubai through smart devices. It enables fresh graduates or experienced professionals to register for free, search for job vacancies in 18 Dubai government entities that have so far joined the app and at the same time apply for the job.
The mJobs app was implemented by the Government Resources planning Systems Department (GRPS) at DSG as a distinguished smart solution and app. The app has both Arabic and English interfaces and has many features including creating a new account; view available job vacancies; synchronize same account with DSG's eJob portal www.ejob.ae; search by department, publication date and keywords, add job vacancies to job basket to view and apply later; create and update personal file.
The app also enables applicants to login using Facebook; share job vacancies through multiple channels; apply or share with friends, upload files, CVs and photos (from Dropbox or smart phone); view related notifications and track application status.
H.E. Ahmad Bin Humaidan, DSG Director General, said: 'The launch of this smart app is in line with the theme of connected smart services as per our DSG Strategy 2014-2017, which calls for government services to be provided through smart devices. It is also in response to our customers’ feedback and in fulfillment of the leadership's vision to contribute to the satisfaction and happiness of all those living in our emirate by bringing together as many government entities as possible.' Bin Humaidan pointed out that the new app would effectively contribute to enhancing the competitiveness of Dubai on all international indices, enabling it to become the smartest government regionally and globally.
Bin Humaidan added: 'The GRPS team was able to carry out this project over a record time of two months of hard work which continued even on holidays, benefiting from the internal qualified technical and technological cadres without any technological support from any external parties. Our launch of this app enables both cost and time saving. Government entities can use this shared service instead of creating their own, while job-seekers can use the app instead of approaching each entity separately. These type of smart services fulfil our objective of bringing happiness to people. Based on this, customers can also express how far they are satisfied with the app by clicking the 'Happiness Meter' icon on the app page.'
The app features many other services including information on the app, how to communicate with DSG and the websites of government entities. DSG also provides the necessary app-related support for the public round the clock through the unified contact centre AskDubai on 600560000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
