Al-Tijari Offered the gold sponsorship to the virtual career fair arranged by the Australian College of Kuwait “ACK” and sponsored the virtual career fair of the American University of the Middle East “AUM”. This comes within the Bank’s social responsibility towards fresh graduates as a socially responsible Bank that cares for sponsoring career fairs being a platform where the Bank showcases suitable job opportunities for ambitious Kuwaiti youth, that are about to finish their university studies.
The Bank’s sponsorship of such career fairs confirms once again its support for Kuwaiti youth seeking job opportunities in the banking sector. The Bank pays great attention to developing the capabilities of young people and strongly believes in their creativity, innovation and ability to achieve success once given due support and care.
Commenting on the Bank’s sponsorship of the said fairs, Mr. Sadiq Abdullah - General Manager, Human Resources Division said: “The circumstances posed by the Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19) have prevented holding such career fairs and forums and the Bank’s participation therein in the traditional way. Nonetheless, the Bank has been keen to offer gold sponsorship for the Virtual Career Fair organized by the Australian College of Kuwait and sponsored the Virtual Career Fair organized by the American University of the Middle East. Such career fairs serve as a communication channel within a virtual environment between the Bank and ambitious Kuwaiti youth seeking job opportunities in the private sector.”
According to Mr. Abdullah investing in Kuwaiti fresh graduates contributes towards achieving sustainable development of the Country. In this context, he stressed the Bank’s endeavors to attract ambitious Kuwaiti youth, qualify and train them for working in the various departments across the Bank, thus increasing the national labor percentage in the Bank and preparing a generation of new Kuwaiti bankers as part of the Bank’s mission for “Building the Future together”.
