Saudi-based shipping and logistics group, Bahri, is expanding its annual internship training programme, which has been held annually in Riyadh, to the UAE, through a two-month programme in Dubai. This initiative offers on-site practical experience to undergraduate students from Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries.
As part of the internship program, which got underway on 16th June at Bahri’s office in Dubai, the trainees will be assigned a number of tasks and responsibilities and have the opportunity to develop a better understanding of various aspects of Bahri’s operations and the maritime industry in general. Bahri will also host regular ‘Meet The Expert’ sessions during the program to help the trainees gain insights into a range of functions within the company.
Commenting on the internship program, Hisham Alkhaldi, Chief Support Officer, Bahri, said: “The launch of our annual Bahri Cooperative Training Program in Dubai represents an important milestone in our vision to foster future leadership for the maritime sector in the Kingdom and the wider region. We are confident that the program will help expose the participating students to the corporate work environment and to a variety of employment opportunities.”
The students will receive hands-on training with support from Bahri’s experts while working within different business units, including ship management, oil, chemicals, human resources, information technology and finance.
