Kuwait – Kuwait Financial Centre “Markaz” announced the launch of its 2022 Markaz Graduate Development Program (MGDP). The program was established as part of its ongoing corporate social responsibility initiatives to build human capabilities and promote youth development in Kuwait. Markaz is inviting Kuwaiti graduates to apply for the hands-on training program and take advantage of the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge and support their career growth. Applications will be accepted until 16 January 2022.

The program, which was established in 2017 and has been running successfully for four years, will commence in February 2022. Participants will gain work experience over a 12 month period. The trainees will be rotated through all departments at Markaz to provide them an overview of various aspects of its operations as well as day-to-day work, and then allocated to a specific department for an extended placement. Throughout the program, graduates receive a mix of direct and online training, alongside practical activities.

Commenting on the announcement, Bibi Maqames, HR Officer at Markaz, said: “Transforming Kuwait into a regional financial and trade hub is a key objective of the Vision 2035 plan, and the financial services sector has a central role to play in achieving this goal. Through our Markaz Graduate Development Program, we are aiming to nurture future Kuwaiti leaders by thoroughly involving them in every aspect of our work. We are proud that we have participated in training 42 graduates and hired 38% of the participants who proved their capabailities and professional skills.”

“We enable graduates to gain insights into how companies operate and guide them to make better career choices by providing them an opportunity to undertake and excel at day-to-day tasks and responsibilities in the investment banking and asset management sectors. On completion of the program, our competitively-selected group of trainees will have benefitted from the experience of working in a leading private financial sector organization and from constant and meaningful interactions with leaders, professionals and operational teams at Markaz,” added Maqames.

Outstanding Kuwaiti graduates holding any business-relevant major from a recognized university and proficient in Arabic and English can apply. Those successful in qualifying tests and interviews will be inducted into the one-year Markaz Graduate Development Program. To certify the valuable exposure and learning they have gained, at the end of the program each trainee will receive an Experience Letter and a Completion Certificate, which will provide a significant helping hand as they make their future career choices.
