KUWAIT: Warba Bank participated in the Job Fair organized recently by the American University of the Middle East (AUM). This position reflects Warba Bank's commitment to recruit Kuwaiti graduates and train them to work in Islamic banking, and to improve the capabilities of national cadres in this sector; thus, reflecting positively on enriching the local market with Kuwaiti manpower which is the backbone of solid economic development.

On that regard, Essam Al-Shaya, Chief Human Resources and General Services Officer at Warba Bank, said: "Our participation in the exhibition enabled Warba Bank to share its banking experience with new graduates seeking to enter the job market. The new graduates interacted with the bank's team that offered full demonstrations regarding the bank's operations and working environment.

This also provides added value to staff members in terms of experience and other advantages. Furthermore, they gave students an idea about the skills and other requirements needed to apply for jobs in this field, and offered advice based on Warba Bank's experience in hiring, training, and qualifying national manpower."

Shaya further added: "This is not the first time that Warba Bank participates in career fairs. It has participated previously in several other important fairs including GUST and Kuwait University job fairs held earlier this year. The bank believes that such exhibitions leave a huge positive impact on the ability to open new horizons for young people in order to enable them to gain advanced professional skills and attain a general idea regarding their future careers."

Warba Bank's participation reflects its commitment to help such activities succeed, considering that they contribute in enriching the labor market. These job fairs are considered a great platform in which job seekers and companies can directly meet and have discussions on the nature of work and other issues.
