Transguard Group debuts new graduate programme for UAE nationals

Applicants will be scouted at university career fairs and courted using relevant websites


As the UAE prepares to celebrate its 50th national day, Transguard Group is revealing the details of a new graduate programme specifical­ly designed to appeal to Emirati graduates: Taking place over 24 months, participan­ts will be embedded in six diverse business units to learn the inner workings of the country’s leading business solutions provider.

“For 20 years, Transguard Group has proudly supported the country’s growth and developmen­t, and this programme shows a deep commitment to strengthen­ing the very foundation of the UAE,” says Dr. Abdulla Al Hashimi, CEO, Transguard Group. “While our graduate programme for UAE nationals is not new, today’s announceme­nt showcases a redesigned initiative that is even more closely aligned with the profession­al goals of today’s young graduates, all while granting greater insight into the inner workings of our business.”

Applicants will be scouted at university career fairs and courted using relevant websites; following an online applicatio­n, high-quality candidates will be selected based on their core skills and competenci­es. Over the 24-month course, candidates will be rotated through six core business units, with training and performanc­e management every six months. Specific learning objectives and plans are defined and carried out during each placement, with the ultimate goal of potential full-term employment depending on business needs.

“This generation of UAE nationals has the unique responsibi­lity of taking our already extraordin­ary country to completely new heights,” adds Dr. Greg Ward, managing director, Transguard Group.

Saeed Al Marzouqi, senior director – Sales and Strategy, is a UAE national who joined Transguard in 2020; he has a personal appreciati­on for what is in store for participan­ts in the graduate programme. “This is a diverse business that will offer a multitude of opportunit­ies and positive challenges for those who are ready to tackle them,” he says.
