Recruitment and DFSA Requirements

Every two years, the DFSA recruits a number of top UAE National graduates for entry into its prestigious TRL Programme, starting in September. Our aim is to recruit, develop and manage high performing graduate talent.

The DFSA requires successful graduates to possess:

  • Education to University level (Bachelor’s degree) in any discipline.

  • A very high standard of spoken and written English – this is essential as the work involves reading, writing and speaking English on highly technical matters.
  • An acceptable standard of numeracy.
  • Willingness and enthusiasm to commit to the TRL Programme requirements.

Graduates should possess excellent research skills showing good powers of analysis and attention to detail, yet at the same time they must be practical and creative in solving complex problems.

They should be self-motivated, learning and work focused, and highly achievement oriented.
