National Bank of Fujairah PJSC (NBF) today announces the graduation of a further 12 UAE nationals from its 2nd batch of NBF Technology Academy, with this year’s programme run in partnership with Fujairah Government. Students completed six months of intensive training, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to fulfil their career ambitions, while contributing to the country’s economic growth.
The 2022 programme launched in June in collaboration with PWC’s Academy Middle East, a group of experts devoted to preparing the trainees by providing them with opportunities to learn, explore, and share their innovative ideas. Various training courses involved building from baseline IT knowledge to application development, and system administration training.
Now in its second consecutive year, the exclusive academy provides local talent with progressive career opportunities in IT and innovation, and helps them achieve digital, technical and scientific excellence, thus deepening the local talent available in this space.
Commenting on the occasion, Hanadi Al Hosani, Senior Manager - HR Business Partner & Emiratization, said “We are committed to investing in local talent and driving innovation in our industry, while supporting the UAE’s digital transformation goals. By equipping our students with new skills, deepening their knowledge of various IT and technology disciplines and exposing them to a professional work environment, the NBF Technology Academy helps to broaden the career horizons for many young UAE nationals and prepares them to take on leadership roles in the future.
She continued, “We were very impressed by the hard work and dedication of this year’s graduates and wish them every success in their new roles. We look forward to watching the careers of these future leaders flourish.”
In line with NBF’s commitment to the development of Emirati talent, as well as the digital transformation of the UAE, all 12 candidates successfully completed the program and were provided with the opportunity to work. 11 of the program’s graduates took roles at NBF and one graduate joined the Port of Fujairah.
