ENOC Group currently partnered with international technology company SAP on its Young Professional Programme. The SAP Training and Development Institute’s Young Professional Programme is a 3-month-long programme, via which 25 unemployed or underemployed university graduates acquire digital and soft skills and turn out to be certified SAP Associate Consultants on SAP’s modern-day solutions. ENOC Group is set to hire 13 of the programme graduates.
Marita Mitschein, Senior Vice President Digital Skills, SAP Southern Europe, Africa and Middle East, and Managing Director of the SAP Training and Development Institute, said: “Digital skills are vital for the region’s organizations to proceed to lead innovation and Digital Transformation. Following the current graduation of our last Young Professional Programme in the UAE in December 2019, this next programme cohort will make contributions to the digital transformation of ENOC Group as well as further SAP clients and channel partners in the UAE and beyond.”
Graduates of the upcoming cohort in the UAE will be skilled and certified on SAP Activate Project Manager and SAP Business Process Integration and will acquire soft skill and innovation trainings such as Communication Skills and Design Thinking.
H.E Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO of ENOC, said: “At ENOC Group, we are constantly thinking about how we can bridge the skills gap by developing different and innovative working techniques and that is why we work with our partners to discover possibilities that will increase our national talents. We agree with that the Young Professional Programme will provide young talents the skills and training required to support our digital transformation efforts.”
