20.04.2015

Riyadh-Saudi Arabia: 20 April, 2015 - Schneider Electric, a global leader in energy management, today announced the completion of its third Annual Apprentice Programme for fresh graduates from Local and Abroad Universities in KSA, Saudi Arabia.

Introduced by Schneider Electric in 2011, the Apprentice Programme is a six-month course offering insights into Schneider Electric’s global business solutions and active regional segments. The participating graduates work across departments including design, methods, contracts, technical antenna, eco building and project design management, and are assigned to various projects within the organisation based on their interests, skills and field of study. At the end of the apprenticeship, participants offer an in-depth presentation of their learning and experiences based on the assignment and team interaction.

As part of the initiative, Schneider Electric hosts training programmes to enhance the interpersonal and presentation skills of the graduates, as well as their team communication, project management and budgeting abilities. Participants are also offered specific sessions on managing deadlines and stress, performance and business fundamentals, technical report writing, and quality assurance.

Fahad Alferaih, Vice President – Human Resources and Administration, Schneider Electric, said: “Schneider Electric is dedicated to empowering the leaders of tomorrow with knowledge, learning opportunities and the right tools to grow to the next level in their chosen careers. The Graduates Program is the best way to recruit budding talent that possesses aptitude and the potential to assume managerial positions within Schneider Electric in the near future. The industry today needs new ideas and processes to make sustainable solutions an integral part of our lifestyle – and it is often the youth that brings such innovation to the table.”
