Millennium Hotels recently launched the “TooMooh” campaign. “TooMooh” in Arabic is called, “Initiative”. Millennium hotels currently have only a handful of Emiratis working in their hotels. With this new initiative, Millennium hotels are seeking to attract, develop and sustain the local talent to participate in the hospitality industry.
Millennium Hotels and Resorts is one of the largest hotel chains in the world which owns, asset manages and operates over 130 hotels worldwide. Millennium hotels operate 40,00 rooms worldwide and currently operates 38 hotels in the MENAT region and have 14 hotels due to open in 2019 and 40 hotels in the pipeline for the period of 2020-2022 across the region.
Dubai is one of the top 5 visited cities in the world and hospitality industry is one of the highest contributing industries in the GDP. Millennium Hotels want to support the growth of UAE graduates and undergrads. TooMooh is a training programme which targets only UAE citizens and trains them through their different executive and leadership programme. These local talents would later be added in Millennium workforce. It doesn’t have to be limited to lower or middle positions but if a person proves to be an asset, he could gain higher positions at any of the Millennium hotels within UAE.
Mr. Ali AlZaabi, President of Millennium Hotels and Resorts, Middle East and Africa, an Emirati himself wants to bring more UAE citizens in the industry. Millennium Hotels has proved to be one of the top 5 hotels group in the region within just 15 years. Mr. AlZaabi sees a lot of potential in local talents and feels they could be an asset to the hospitality industry. There is a rise of attraction among UAE Nationals towards the hospitality and tourism industry. Millennium Hotels will focus more on hiring UAE Nationals to join their workforce.
Through the TooMooh programme will provide training for students which includes latest technology required in the hospitality industry and knowledge of English language. They plan to invite students and their parents to attend the seminars where they would be educated about the growth in the hospitality sector. We believe it’s a compelling approach and hopes a few thousand Emiratis will be added to the hospitality industry. TooMooh will absolutely be free internship programmes.

Millennium Hotels have already started similar campaigns in Oman and Saudi Arabia and is doing very well. Saudi Arabia has made it mandatory to recruit at least 33% local workforce, similarly in Oman. We congratulate Millennium Hotels and Resorts for the launch of this extensive new ‘TooMooh” internship programme and hope will create waves across the nation.
If you are an Emirati student who is looking for a passionate career then look no further, TooMooh Programme is your passport to the future.
