"Insurance has become one of the UAE's most dynamic financial industries, making it an attractive employer in terms of Emiratisation. The industry provides substantial opportunities for self-development and there is room for many to make insurance a life-long career," said Hussain Al Meeza, CEO Aman.

As part of Aman's commitment to incorporating more UAE nationals into the insurance sector, the company enrolls its trainees in 'Bawabatak', a programme provided by the Emirates Banking Institute comprising introductory courses in insurance. Besides passing this special programme, trainees must also pass internal examinations at Aman in order to become part of its workforce. Aman has also committed to investing in local talent by sponsoring further studies for those who complete their courses with honors.

Qualified individuals have the opportunity to continue their training at the Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance. "Our experience in encouraging nationals to work in the insurance sector has proved that they are driven to make insurance a career. Several of our trainees display great potential and have benefitted greatly from our induction programmes," said Al Meeza.
