Muscat: – Continuing to place itself at the centre of the community, National Bank of Oman (NBO) has joined an initiative called Khibrat, pledging to train 60 young Omanis for work. Organised by the Ministry of Labor and the Ministry of Culture, Sport and Youth, Khibrat offers a five day intensive workshop that focuses on teaching employability skills and work ethics to a total of 600 young people across Oman. The bank hosted the program’s 11th and final session in Muscat. Upon completion, it will fund the candidates for on-the-job training in the private sector for a period of 12 months. It’s the latest youth-centred initiative NBO has launched as it seeks to support Oman’s young people and promote national capabilities.

Hassan Abdul Amir Shaban, General Manager, Chief Government Banking Officer said, “NBO has always had a strong commitment to the younger generation and through our many initiatives we aim to equip them with the tools they need to get ahead as they embark on their working lives. By joining hands with key agents in the public and private sectors we ensure that even more people can benefit. The Khibrat programme will offer the candidates a unique opportunity to work directly with industry professionals and gain important knowledge on the workplace that will help them build successful careers and contribute to their community and the overall economic and social development of the Sultanate.”

NBO is always looking at ways to engage with Oman’s young people while fostering a culture of talent, and this is demonstrated through many initiatives like the Youth Awards, the Hackathon, and a recent partnership with Outward Bound Oman. Meanwhile, the bank offers a range of innovative products and services designed with the unique needs of young people in mind
