The Dubai Mall unveils Guest Services Volunteer Programme for women

  • Volunteers to act as The Dubai Mall Guest Services Ambassadors
  • Volunteer wages to be donated to charity
  • Open for non-working female Dubai residents

As part of its corporate social responsibility initiatives, Emaar Malls Group has introduced an elite Guest Services Volunteer Programme for The Dubai Mall, whereby women volunteers can serve as goodwill ambassadors for the mall and their wages will be donated to charity.

The community initiative is open to all non-working female residents in Dubai. Each volunteer is expected to contribute a minimum of three shifts of four hours each week to the The Dubai Mall Guest Services Volunteers Programme. In return, the equivalent wages will be donated to a local charity.

The Dubai Mall Guest Services Volunteers will support the strong on-the-ground Guest Services team of 200 plus staff and will be the social and informative hub for visitors to The Dubai Mall, acting as the first line for general enquiries.

The flagship development of Emaar Malls Group, The Dubai Mall is one of the world’s largest shopping, lifestyle and entertainment destinations featuring a host of world-class leisure attractions. The Dubai Mall will open its doors to the public on October 30, 2008. The volunteers will play an instrumental role in welcoming customers and guiding them in navigating the mall, which sprawls over 5.9 million sq ft of internal floor area.

Mr Jim Badour, Chief Executive Officer, Emaar Malls Group said: ”The Dubai Mall will be a key leisure and retail attraction for the people and visitors of Dubai. The Guest Services Volunteer Programme is an ideal opportunity for non-working female residents in Dubai to act as ”ambassadors” and be part of the opening dynamic of this landmark endeavour. It also highlights our corporate social responsibility of meaningfully involving members of the community and supporting charity initiatives.”

Mr Yousif Al Ali, General Manager, The Dubai Mall, added: ”We are looking for ladies who enjoy mixing with different nationalities and have a passion for shopping and socialising. With this initiative we hope to provide a platform for non-working females in Dubai to give back to the community while expanding their social networks. As part of The Dubai Mall family, the Guest Services Ambassadors will receive sneak previews of the mall prior to the opening day. They will also be the first in line for VIP tickets to high profile events and fashion shows that are scheduled to take place within the mall and furthermore they will be rewarded with The Dubai Mall shopping vouchers.”
