Dubai Financial Market (DFM) today launched its Summer Training Program 2012, which offers 18 UAE school and university students practical training throughout the month of July for 6 hours per day from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.
Initiated in 2004, the DFM Summer Training Program's success in achieving its desired objectives has encouraged DFM to organize this program annually. Every trainee receives a cash allowance in addition to the appreciation certificate.
Tayeba Abdul Mannan, Assistant Vice President, Head of Human Resources, DFM Company said: "The program aims to sharpen the students' skills enabling them to plan for their future career, as it includes a variety of activities designed to educate them on a set of skills that will ultimately guide them to meet the labor market needs. The organization of the summer training program for UAE students reaffirms Dubai Financial Market's commitment to social responsibility, developing and nurturing local talent, as well as growing the role of youth in society."
Dubai Financial Market (DFM) was established as a public institution with its own independent corporate body. DFM operates as a secondary market for the trading of securities issued by public shareholding companies, bonds issued by the Federal Government or any of the local Governments and public institutions in the country, units of investment funds and any other financial instruments, local or foreign, which are accepted by the market. The DFM commenced operations on March 26, 2000. Following its initial public offering in November 2006, when DFM offered 1.6 billion shares, representing 20 per cent of its paid-up capital of AED 8 billion, DFM became a public joint stock company.
