Reflecting its belief in the importance of supporting the youth and providing them with suitable job opportunities in the banking and financial sectors, National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) participated in the “Employment after Completion of Military Service” Career Fair, which was organized by the National Military Service Authority of the Ministry of Defense, to help the youth who have completed their military service to start their career.

The fair was held for one day, where many agencies introduced their vacancies to the graduates from the military conscripts who enjoy responsibility, discipline, skills and high values that were instilled in them during performing their national service.

On this occasion, Mr. Emad Al-Ablani, GM – Group Human Resources at National Bank of Kuwait said: “We are pleased to participate in this important career fair, which aims to open the way for our youth who have completed their military service by providing them with the best job opportunities to start a thriving career that serves the Country in all economic fields.”

Al-Ablani indicated that the fair represents a genuine tool to enhance the participation of national talent in various work sectors and fields, in line with the strategic and comprehensive framework for the employment of Kuwaitis, as enshrined in Kuwait Vision 2035.

“As the largest financial institution in Kuwait, NBK continues to reinforce its leading position among all private sector institutions in employing national manpower, as the bank is always seeking to attract human capital, provide them with training, upskilling and qualifying them for banking work,” he added.

Al-Ablani stressed that NBK’s recruitment strategy is based on diversity and equal opportunities, attracting the best talent, training them and developing their abilities and skills with the best programs, so that they can build a successful career that will help them take leading positions within the bank in the future. This makes NBK the employer of choice in the private sector for Kuwaiti fresh graduates, in addition to being the bank with the highest retention rates for Kuwaiti employees.

“NBK does not only provide job opportunities, but also a promising career path and future, thanks to the bank's professional training resources and programs that are on par with international standards in a way that helps enhance the skills and competencies of the youth,” he explained.

NBK participates in career fairs as they serve as a meeting point between private sector companies and potential candidates looking for a career. It will also help graduates navigate their way into the labor market, in supports of the bank’s endeavors to promote the culture of working in the private sector among the Kuwaiti youth and attract high-caliber talent to the banking sector.

NBK is committed to provide training programs for young Kuwaiti fresh graduates and students, to equip them with the expertise, professional knowledge, and on-job training, as professional preparation for them to navigate the labor market, manifesting NBK’s role as one of the leading local private sector institutions in supporting the youth.

NBK’s endeavors to acquire national talent go in line with its development and training plans aimed to invest in national cadres and prepare a promising banking generation. The bank also seeks to provide a series of professional training courses and academic programs, given its leadership among all banking institutions in Kuwait in organizing training programs for the youth.
