Finance Apprentice Programme
The Finance Apprentice Program is a structured three-year programme incorporating Financial Accounting fundamentals, and practical operational accounting. Upon completion, each batch will be awarded the “Infomate Finance Apprentice” certificate and the possible opportunity to join the finance team in a John Keells Group subsidiary.
To join the FA Programme straight out of school at the age of 19, was a great decision I made. I am now very confident of the direction of my career and, I would endorse this programme for anyone to jump start their finance careers.
I got the privilege to understudy numerous core functions of JKH; I was mentored by Senior Finance Professionals in the John Keells Group. It was definitely a great opportunity to develop skills as a professional and as an individual.
The network and the mind-set you develop throughout the Finance Apprentice Programme allows you to stand out from the rest, as strong future leaders.
During my deployment I got the privilege of moving into Maldivian resort hotels for 2 months. Infomate helped me realize my passion towards finance and accounting during the three years and supported me throughout the journey.
The most significant opportunity given in the 3rd year of the programme was the chance to get deployed to different Business Units of JKH, allowing us to look into each industry more closely.
The programme is well-structured and an immensely relevant stepping stone to progress in the finance field. It has been a great opportunity to develop and expand my skills.
Throughout my three year tenure, I found great people who were ready to help and share their knowledge. The friendly and lively atmosphere at InfoMate made the job all the more enjoyable. InfoMate was a great stepping stone for my career.
Being a Finance Apprentice for 3 years is equivalent to working in nearly 50 different companies. I was involved in the processes of many JKH companies whose operations are different from one another.
The structured Programme focuses on technical aspects as well as soft skills training which is most valuable to develop ourselves professionally and personally.
My three year stint at Infomate helped me to mould myself to meet diverse professional challenges and, with confidence, face work related situations which are the key necessities for a successful career path.
As Head Of Quality Control I am able to manage various businesses with different industry specifics, using the experience I gained when I started with the company as a Finance Apprentice.
