Wholly owned by FHH, the academy will utilize 60 years of technical and market expertise to offer a pioneering on-the-job training program in line with the group’s long-term vision for sustainable growth in Jordan and the region. Fine Academy will equip trainees with sector-relevant knowledge in supply chain management, and at a future stage, the commercial field, to address the present skills gap. 

The top performers in the program will be considered for relevant job openings after completing their training. 

CEO of FHH, James Michael Lafferty, said: “At Fine Hygienic Holding we are very proud to be working towards establishing the first academy of its kind in the Middle East. Jordan has plenty of world-class talent, and at FHH, we have the expertise as market leaders to deliver training programs that build on their formal education and sharpen their skills in order to help them excel upon graduation.”

He added: “We are the largest paper manufacturer in the region, and our factories have state-of-the-art machinery which requires specialist training to run. Deciding to set up an academy offering hands-on training in one of the most in-demand sectors in Jordan is our way of giving back to the community and a proactive response to the current economic situation.”

Candidates must show leadership, discipline, perseverance, and a passion for winning. Talented candidates will be selected to join the academy regardless of factors irrelevant to their capabilities and potential, such as gender, family background, ethnicity, age, or physical disability.

For the trial phase, which will begin in October, six students from different vocational centers will spend three months at FHH’s Areinbeh industrial complex learning directly from the group’s own experts in supply chain management. 

The participants will follow a comprehensive curriculum covering industry-related knowledge and soft skills training given by external experts. Once completed, they will be equipped with relevant hands-on experience giving them practical knowledge that employers in Jordan need. The knowledge will empower participants to look for work and enter the job market. 

In 2022, FHH will grow the program to involve more stakeholders, giving even more people the opportunity to enroll in the program, beginning in Jordan and with plans to expand regionally.

Through its social responsibility efforts, FHH aims to provide long-term solutions to socio-economic challenges and offer decisive and comprehensive aid in times of crisis. 

Fine’s social responsibility program’s success story, Khair al Koura, is a pioneering education, entrepreneurship, and women’s empowerment project. The program was designed to promote local, sustainable development in the community and demonstrate FHH’s ability to achieve impactful change as it is now fully owned and run by its beneficiaries. 

Fine Academy is an ambitious project at the same level and expands educational initiatives, internships, and job training already offered by FHH. The academy grew out of the group’s continued dedication to giving back to the communities and countries where it operates.
