Some insights from our team
I am proud to be part of SAMH family and to contribute to the development of the Emirate of Sharjah. My journey at SAMH started one year ago, it was full of challenges, great opportunities and new experiences that improved my skills and shaped my personality. SAM has introduced me to two of the most challenging and productive programs; SAP Young Professional Program and SAM Emerging Leaders Program. Through these programs I was exposed to new concepts and effective techniques that enhanced my professional knowledge. I appreciate the support provided by SAMH Management towards investing in youth and providing trust and opportunities to fresh graduates.
I am very grateful that Sharjah Asset Management has given me the opportunity to serve the Emirate of Sharjah through my presence with a team that works to diversify the sources of income for the Emirate and search for strategic business partnerships that provide the necessary community services and contribute to strengthen numerous sectors in the city.
I like the learning experience here at SAMH as I learn every day. The practical knowledge I gained by working here surpass my University studies and previous job and training experiences. I learned about the engineering aspect in buildings and project management that I apply at work. In terms of work interaction, by attending meetings outside of SAMH with different stakeholders, I learned how to be organized. I also learned to value other people’s time by preparing before I attend the meetings and working hard post-meeting to deliver what is required from me because in the end I am not only presenting myself, I am representing SAM as well.

What Is LEAD?
An internal programme designed explicitly for SAM's employees to identify and develop employees' talents while shaping their careers. It allows employees to benefit from individual career paths, high-quality training offered by global experts, practical business assignments, increased visibility with senior management, and new opportunities to progress to next level of their career.
SAM, together with the Centre for Creative Leadership (CCL) has embarked in a cutting-edge leadership development process whereby a selective group of high potential employees is taken through a series of modules and assignments to build their skills and shape their mindset for future leadership roles. The process is multi-faceted and includes training sessions as well as individual and team assignments.
Some, if not all of the future leaders also go through secondments in selected companies to apply the learning as well as experience best practices in other organizations. The impact of the overall process becomes even more apparent as the projects gather momentum and start delivering tangible results.
Preparing the Next Generation of Leaders
The program selection is transparent and merit-based and is open to all SAM employees. Interested employees self-nominate to enroll and undergo standardized assessments and interviews whereby the top achievers are selected.
