Dubai Islamic Bank launches third round of training program
Dubai Islamic Bank has announced the launch of the third round of its training programme, Iktasib, targeting UAE nationals. The training, taking place over the summer period, aims to identify the strength and capabilities available in the working market. It also provides a practical and professional opportunity for the youth to familiarise themselves with the Islamic banking sector while shifting them away from the studying into the working atmosphere.
The program has attracted 160 trainees from senior students in schools and technical collages from all over the United Arab Emirates.
Mr Ahmed Al Sarkal, Human Resources Manager, DIB said: “Through the Iktasib programme, the bank aims to strengthen its contribution to society. Iktasib provides professional training opportunities for young UAE nationals allowing them to develop their skill set and increase their knowledge of Shari’a compliant Islamic finance. Trained individuals will be given priority regarding employment vacancies at the bank in the future.” The second round of the Iktasib programme builds on the success of the previous undertaken programs that took place over the past two years.”
