Bahri, a global leader in logistics and transportation, has announced the expansion of its ‘Bahri Cooperative Training Program,’ which is being held annually in Riyadh, to the UAE. The programme offers two-month on-site practical experience to ambitious undergraduate students from Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries.

As part of the internship programme, which got underway on June 16, 2019 at Bahri’s office in Dubai, the trainees will be assigned a number of tasks and responsibilities and have the opportunity to develop a comprehensive understanding of the various aspects of Bahri’s operations and the maritime industry in general. Bahri will also host regular ‘Meet the Expert’ sessions during the programme to help the trainees gain specialist insights into a range of functions in the company.

Commenting on the internship programme, Mr Hisham Alkhaldi, Chief Support Officer, Bahri, said: "As a committed organisation, Bahri has been spearheading efforts aimed at future-proofing the logistics and transportation business in the region and driving localisation through the empowerment of the local youth with the right skills and knowledge. The launch of our annual Bahri Cooperative Training Programme in Dubai represents an important milestone in our vision to foster future leadership for the maritime sector in the Kingdom and the wider region. We are confident that the programme will help expose the participating students to the corporate work environment and to a variety of employment opportunities."
