During its presence at the event, the bank will be recruiting talented and qualified Emiratis who are keen to gain experience and international exposure working with a leading banking brand with a global presence. Standard Chartered will also highlight its flagship International Graduate (IG) Programme along with its reduced hours Scheme at the exhibition.

Nicholas Harvey, Regional Head of Talent Acquisition for MENAP, Standard Chartered Bank, said: "With its firm support towards the development of the UAE Nationals, Standard Chartered is driving aggressively the bank Emiratisation initiatives including attraction, development and retain local talent which is totally in line with the bank's 'Emiratisation Vision 2021' which aims to make the bank 'an employer of choice for Emiratis' by 2021.
