Sadafco completes summer internship programme

JEDDAH, October 2, 2017

Saudia Dairy and Foodstuff Company (Sadafco) has completed its 2017 Summer Internship Program (SIP), in which high school and university students worked in a dairy and food company and gained vital practical skills.

The program, which was launched in 2016, in line with the Ministry of Labour’s vision and Human Resources Development Funds, showcased Sadafco’s commitment to support the Saudi 2030 vision through developing the skills of the future generations and giving them the capabilities they need to compete in the modern job market.

“The Summer Internship Program underlines our commitment towards young Saudis by providing them with the opportunity to engage in a highly beneficial work environment where they can build upon their academic experience and support their career aspirations,” said Wout Matthijs, chief executive officer, Sadafco.

“Throughout the internship, students were getting acquainted with the values Sadafco works to uphold and gained expertise from interacting with our employees, all of which should assist them in setting a future path and goals for themselves.”

A total of 57 young males and females took part in the internship after applying through SAIFI’s website. During the one month program, students learned the essence of team work, self-development, time-management and how to take responsibility. To guarantee that interns received a unique and beneficial experience, Sadafco ensured that both trainees and training managers undertook a ‘training process survey’ on SAIFI’s website, which allowed them to share their feedback on the program and lessons learned.

Students were placed at different locations in the Kingdom and got assigned to different departments according to their educational major and skills. The SIP was managed and supervised by the Employee Services team at Sadafco. Upon completion of the program, trainees were invited to a farewell event to meet the CEO and received their program certificates. – TradeArabia News Service
