QAFCO’s Graduate Development Program prepares Qataris for positions within the company in disciplines that meet QAFCO’s operational requirements, as determined from time to time.

Our Program mentors and supervisors (assisted by training coordinators and coaches as applicable) apply three principles when planning and structuring a fresh graduate’s development program:
Programs are competency based - the planning, execution and monitoring focuses exclusively on the competencies to be developed to excel in a targeted position.
Programs incorporate the largest possible variety of work activities that facilitate suitable development of a graduate. The object of having a variety of work is to broaden the experience of the graduate and to ensure that all aspects of competency are developed and ultimately assessed. Variety is obtained in different ways, singly or in combination.
Programs are structured to ensure measurable progression of work responsibilities - increasing responsibility and accountability within the organization are imposed on and needs to be accepted by the graduate during the development program, until a graduate is capable of accepting responsibility in making and executing work and decisions at the full professional / functional level of the targeted position.


Applying is easy - all you need to do is email the following to us at:
