Transguard launches graduate trainee programme
Dubai, March 6, 2014
Transguard Themis Recruitment, a part of the Emirates Group, has launched an internal and external graduate trainee programme to help tackle major hiring issues faced by university graduates looking to start a career.
The firm specialises in providing end-to-end recruitment and contract resourcing services to professional organisations through the UAE and the wider GCC.
Jason Armes, general manager, said: “It can be difficult for graduates to find a career within their specific fields, especially in the emirates where we live and work in such a fast paced business community. Organisations may not have the time, desire or resources to invest in a graduate with little or no work experience.”
According to the Knowledge and Human Development Authority, over 9,000 students graduated with at least a diploma in the UAE last year.
Transguard Themis will be looking to place graduates for short-term contract work, part-time work as well as full time positions.
This can meet the short and long term requirements of both companies and graduates, said Armes.
“Companies benefit from well-educated students with a good understanding of the region, in many cases bi-lingual and often a good grasp of the local commercial environment. From the graduates’ perspective, they get that all-important work experience, which may eventually lead to a full time job,” he added. - TradeArabia News Service
