We continued to grow the skills of our graduate engineers and welcomed 64 Emiratis into the 2019 graduate programme.
The programme aims to develop the graduates’ skills and help them position themselves as key contributors to a future economy, prepared for the needs of the workplace of tomorrow.
Through the Petrofac Academy – our in-house centre of excellence for employee and career development – graduates will undergo a four-year structured programme in the UAE. Alongside technical training in their chosen discipline, graduates have the opportunity to develop their skills through
on-the-job learning on live projects. Additionally, they will have access to support to create tailored development plans.
The programme further underpins our commitment to the creation of ICV in the UAE, with Petrofac recognised as the best private sector oil and gas company for Emiratisation by the UAE’s Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation in 2019. The accolade has been given based on the Group’s continued efforts and effective cooperation with the UAE Government’s ‘Energy Accelerator’ Emiratisation campaign, launched in July 2019.
George Salibi, E&C Chief Operating Officer, commented:
The UAE is one of our most important markets, and as a company, human capital development forms the cornerstone of our success. We are looking to invest in Emirati graduates and support them to unlock their potential as future leaders.
