In the Company of Specialists
When you join a company like Sanad, you know you’ll be among likeminded people. An inspiring group of individuals who have a certain drive toward betterment and upward mobility, a passion for all things aviation, and a hunger for success.
We are immensely proud of our people across Sanad who embody a wide range of skills across multiple disciplines. Our almost 400-strong workforce at Sanad Aerotech in particular, which is set to grow to 600 over the next two years, is made up of over 30 nationalities.
Ours is a culture of diversity – something of which we are also extremely proud. We invite initiative and encourage the empowerment and involvement of everyone – with the overriding aim of delivering best practices for our customers. And whilst we never lose sight of our heritage, we’re always aiming for tomorrow.
Training & Development
It’s in our nature to nurture people at Sanad. We not only view it as an investment, but also as part of our contribution to society, the industry and the economy.
At Sanad Capital, we welcome bright, incisive minds into an environment where we encourage colleagues to grow together. A suite of training initiatives and programs centered on finance, with specific focus on aviation, have been designed to educate and fully equip our people to work in a forward-thinking company.
Our internal training program at Sanad Aerotech has been designed around the business needs and the development of an internal talent pool. Accordingly, we strategically select our training approach and subjects in order to make sure we create a role model Learning and Development program.
The training programs are comprised of three major modules:
Required by airworthiness authorities prior to the trainee working on engines and components. This program provides trainees with an insight into all legislation applicable to an MRO organization, such as: FAA/EASA/GCAA regulations, Safety Management System and Human factors.
Involves Theoretical and Practical modules that will prepare mechanics to become company authorization holders. The theoretical element provides trainees with a deep understanding of the Engine and System and Engine Performance. It also includes the basics in Inspection Technique and standard practice.
Designed around the Line Managers’ needs to improve their team performance and, equally importantly, training, they are provided with soft skills modules to help either eliminate weakness or develop the personal career of our employees. Based on the employees’ assessment reports and line managers’ recommendations, the soft skills are designed to improve the performance and knowledge in selected areas such as communication skills, Train the Trainer skills, understanding QMS, and root cause analysis.

We encourage those who join us to stay and grow with us. Here are just a few of our longest-serving employees who came, learned and are only too happy to remain part of the Sanad family. And we’re happy they did.
