Manama, July 6, 2011
BMI Bank, a leading Bahraini retail and commercial banking institution, is hosting a batch of 25 young Bahrainis from the Young Arab Leaders (YAL) programme in the bank’s annual summer internship programme.
The 25 Bahraini youth, aged between 18 and 25, will undergo a two-month long intensive hands-on training programme within the bank’s key departments. They will be mentored in different activities including retail, corporate, treasury, risk, private, operations and corporate communications.
BMI Bank has successfully been running its summer internship program since 2005 and has seen the number of interns double this year.
“Being a local Bank, we have designed our internship program to ensure that young Bahraini’s who are keen on pursuing a career within the banking and finance world, receive the best possible opportunity to witness and participate in a real life environment along with the right team of people training and guiding them at every step of the way,” said Jamal Al-Hazeem, chief executive officer of BMI Bank.
“In line with our long standing commitment to give back to the society we operate in, we are proud to support our local youth and invest in training and empowering them. We look forward to introduce these budding bankers to this constantly evolving world in the hope that it will be an interesting and rewarding opportunity for their career and personal development,” he added.
