Homiez to train 100 Bahrainis on digital, e-commerce sectors

MANAMA, September 24, 2022

Bahrain's leading e-commerce platform has declared that it plans to launch an initiative to train 100 locals in the field of e-commerce and equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills.
This initiative is part of the platform's efforts to integrate more local talents into this crucial industry, support Bahrain's efforts to undergo digital transformation, and create a knowledge economy.
Homiez Chief Digital Officer Sadiq Abdul Rasool said: "Some of the key features of this training programme include theoretical and practical sessions, projects, and internal and external participation, followed by a six-month phase of on-the-job training, to ensure outcomes that fully master the foundations and skills of practising e-commerce following the most recent global data."
Rasool affirmed that the participants in this programme will receive training from Homiez's dedicated teams who are professionals in programming, design, research, marketing, communication, and other areas. 
The participants will receive a summary of theoretical and practical experiences and knowledge and will be fully readied for the job market as either employees or entrepreneurs, he stated. 
Rasool said the platform was keen to build partnerships with relevant government and private entities in the implementation of the programme to ensure the achievement of its objectives as effectively as possible. 
"This includes training national cadres, boosting their ability to compete for jobs offered by the crucial area of e-commerce, or developing companies with the capacity for expansion," he noted.
According to Rasool, the program supports initiatives to create what it terms as the 'digital generation in the Bahrain', to boost the number of locals who are capable of actively contributing to the development of these digital tools and systems, as well as to localize the knowledge and digital industries in Bahrain. 
"This initiative would also boost locally produced goods and services and realise the tagline "Made in Bahrain”, as national cadres who establish e-commerce platforms will look for additional manufacturers, retailers, and service providers in Bahrain to include them as clients," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
