Al Salam Bank to admit 18 interns

Designed to offer graduates a well-rounded training experience


MANAMA: Al Salam Bank will admit 18 students from local and international universities as summer interns this year.

The bank announced that its summer internship programme, which will be held for two months, is set to run in collaboration with Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF), KPMG and the Bahrain Association of Banks.

Designed to offer graduates a well-rounded training experience and develop key competencies in the likes of interpersonal communication, time management and problem-solving; the programme comprises a mix of private counselling and mentoring sessions led by experienced executives.

Moreover, the programme will feature a case study on Al Salam Bank which will be followed by a collective research project, enabling the graduates to apply their experience in real-time.

The group projects will be evaluated by a panel of experts to choose a winning team, which will be awarded a prize.

Commenting, Muna Al Balooshi, head of human resources and administration at Al Salam Bank, said: “In light of the Covid-19 situation, last year’s programme was held virtually and included remote-working challenges. The 2021 edition of the programme will be in-person, while maintaining safety and social distancing guidelines set by the National Medical Taskforce; and has been carefully designed to provide young students with a more hands-on and distinct training experience that effectively combines theoretical and practical knowledge in a balanced manner.”

Since its inception in 2007, the programme has trained more than 400 students.
