The ARM Academy

The ARM Young Talent Programme will be administered through the ARM Academy. The Academy’s aim is to train all ARM staff members through a mix of development, management and leadership programs for personal growth, career advancement and organizational development.

The Academy will offer a Leadership Development Programme under its Leader Academy sub- section to support the development of leadership skills of candidates identified with leadership potential. There exists the argument as to whether a leader is born or made. At ARM, we let the employees’ actions shine through as we recognize that the peculiar skills possessed by a leader would be exposed in the employee’s interaction within the team and Firm.

Leadership grooming starts at a junior level, from the moment an employee starts with the Firm. We take pride in our leaders who started their careers with us and have risen through the ranks to become directors of our various businesses. Employees who have been identified would be taken through a career path skewed to the strategic importance of their future roles. The Academy exposes our employees to diverse learning opportunities designed to improve their personal skills, business skills and prepare them for working in the industry and socio-economic environment.

The ARM Young Talent Programme is intensive. For 11 months, your learning will focus on the fundamentals, methods and philosophy of our Investment Management business. You will apply yourself to the theoretical and practical aspect of Investment Management. You will have presentations, give daily reports on market updates, go on company visits, and attend training programs, seminars and conferences. This will culminate in participation on either a business project and/or contribution to our Nigeria Strategy Report.

You will have the same access to the full career support systems given to all ARM Employees. As part of our Talent Programme, we offer Leadership Development for exceptionally outstanding candidates with leadership potential identified during the course of the Programme.

At the end of your internship, you will undergo a formal assessment which will be used to assess your suitability for a Full-Time Offer with the Firm. Subsequently, based on your performance, you may qualify for sponsorship of your Post-Graduate studies. The assessment will consist of:

    A performance Appraisal
    Analysis of a Case Study/ Business Project
    Presentation to Senior Management
