Alba hires 30 Bahraini nationals
Manama, March 19, 2011
Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), one of the largest aluminium smelters in the world, has appointed 30 Bahraini nationals into its workforce.
The newly appointed workers are fresh graduates from high schools and other educational establishments in Bahrain, and will be assigned entry level positions. They will join as operators in the carbon, potline, casthouse, workshop, reduction & maintenance and process control departments.
The recruitment of the 30 new employees forms part of Alba’s ongoing policy of hiring young Bahraini nationals at entry level positions, training them with new skills, and preparing them for greater responsibilities in the future.
“I like to welcome the 30 young Bahraini nationals who have chosen the aluminium industry and Alba, in particular, as the starting point of their career,” said Laurent Schmitt, Alba’s chief executive.
“This industry offers tremendous opportunities for career advancement since aluminium is widely considered as the metal of the future. And being part of a world leader like Alba gives them the added advantage of participating in an industry that contributes substantially to Bahrain’s economy.”
“For the past forty years, Alba has been at the forefront of Bahrain’s industrialisation drive, and I am proud to say that our Bahraini employees have been a key to the company’s success story,” he added.
“I’m confident that our new employees will, also, play an integral role in contributing to the company’s growth. We will certainly support them in their professional growth, and I wish them all success in their jobs,” Schmitt concluded. - TradeArabia News Service
