IBQ launches Qatari training programme
Doha, January 31, 2012
The International Bank of Qatar (IBQ) recently launched a series of training and development programmes aimed at Qataris in line with the bank’s continued efforts to train and develop the best talent in the industry.
This programme falls under IBQ’s ongoing Qatari Development Programme, a home-grown initiative which helps Qatari nationals build in-depth expertise in banking and finance.
The IBQ Qatari Development Programme comprises a range of customised classes for Qataris and brings the day-to-day workplace experience closer to the attendees who are seeking a successful career in the future.
The programme is primarily focused on soft business skills, linguistic skills and banking foundations. Qataris joining these classrooms will have the opportunity to get hands-on expertise at various departments of the IBQ.
Amal Al Sada, head of Human Resources at IBQ said: “At IBQ, we are strongly committed to the development of Qatari talent through our extensive Qatari Development Programme which aims to attract, recruit, train, develop and retain enthusiastic and ambitious Qataris interested in a bright future in the banking sector. This is very much in-line with our continued Qatarization strategy.”
“IBQ is one of the fastest growing banks in Qatar with an ambitious growth strategy and therefore our Qatarization programmes play a significant role in establishing a solid workforce. Such a programme is also a solid testament to our aim to become the Employer of Choice in the country.” added Al Sada. – TradeArabia News Service
