DUBAI, National Bank of Fujairah (NBF) PJSC announced the launch of its exclusive ‘Technology Academy’ for 2022, in partnership with the Port of Fujairah.
NBF Technology Academy is a unique initiative launched by NBF that aims to provide intensive training to UAE students in the field of IT, programming, and the application of the emerging digital capabilities, empowering them with the knowledge and skills to fulfil their ambitions in their career path while contributing to the country’s economic growth.
Vince Cook, CEO of National Bank of Fujairah, commented, “Supporting the career aspirations of this nation’s youth falls within our responsibilities as a national bank, while developing their skills will help create new leadership roles in the banking sector, and support the needs of wider industry in the UAE.”
This year’s programme, which started in June, is a collaboration with PwC’s Academy Middle East, a group of experts who will be devoted to preparing the selected trainees by providing them with opportunities to learn, explore, and share their innovative ideas. The NBF Technology Academy will provide local talent with progressive career opportunities in IT and innovation, enhance digital, technical, and scientific excellence, thus increasing the local talent available in this area.

Upon their successful completion of the programme on 6th November 2022, candidates will be given a formal certification and potentially have an opportunity to work at NBF or the Port of Fujairah.
