Moulding young banking leaders of tomorrow
Kuwait – 19 February, 2020: For the 3rd consecutive year, Burgan Bank participated in the 2020 Manpower and Government Restructuring Program (MGRP) Career Fair. As a Gold sponsor this year, the Bank joined to network and familiarize the students to the high caliber and dynamic work environment the bank has deployed.
Providing a dynamic environment for high-achievers to shine and progress, Burgan Bank aims to develop the brand further and the banking sector as a whole through the integration of ambitious and driven young individuals.
With active participation in different career fairs taking place this year in renowned universities like AUM, ACK and AUK that facilitate both corporate and graduate demands every year, Burgan Bank continues to work as a catalyst to harness growing national talent and advance youth performance in a competitive job market. It is an integral part of the banks mission to recruit professionals that can adapt to transformation, endure agile market situations, and lead the diversified regional financial institution forward into new areas of success.
Armed with the objective to hire candidates that are good communicators, self-motivated, team players equipped with creative and solution driven capabilities as well as a strong work-ethic, the Burgan Banks Human Resources Team shared a comprehensive overview of the bank and its current needs. The platform enabled the bank to discuss present day gaps and what it is looking for in new employees followed by the benefits of joining the private sector.
The bank captured information and interests of the students who were interested in joining through the aid of a QR bar code that was present on the bank’s booth stand.
It is worth noting that Burgan Bank has been the proud recipient of the “Excellence Award in Recruitment of National Labor” during the meeting of the Ministers of Social Affairs in the Gulf Cooperation Council in 2019 followed by the “Brilliance in Employee Engagement in HR” and “HR Professional of the Year” at the Brilliance Awards by BOC Global Events & Training Group in London.
Burgan Bank Group, a strongly positioned regional bank in the MENAT region, now includes nearly 1000 employees in Kuwait and a wide network more than 129 branches strategically distributed across Kuwait, Middle East, North Africa, and Turkey.
