Lloyds TSB Middle East has announced the launch of the fourth annual Undergraduate Development Programme for UAE nationals.
The bank said that along with its existing Management Trainee Programme and Headstart Programme for UAE national graduates, it would aim to develop the next generation of Emirati banking professionals.
Beginning yesterday (January 9th) with 65 new recruits, the Undergraduate Programme is specifically designed for UAE national students who attend a full-time course in any university or college around Dubai.
The one-year programme will run one day a week in the Al Manzil Hotel and offers a salaried position with an annual contract with Lloyds TSB Middle East.
"Emiratisation is a key focus for us and we are committed to delivering comprehensive schemes which provide UAE nationals with practical skills and a good fountain of knowledge of the banking industry," commented Richard Musty, managing director of Lloyds TSB Middle East.
"Now, more than ever, it is important for the financial industry to work hard to develop a deeper talent pool of Emiratis and we believe that our UDP program is a step in the right direction."
