Gulf Bank announced that its summer internship program commenced on 1 June 2014 in cooperation with Gulf University for Science and Technology (GUST), welcoming two groups of 15 students. This initiative comes as part of the Bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy to support youth and the education sector.
The Internship Program will start with a two day training session held by the Bank’s Learning and Development department at its Durrat Alkhaleej specialized Training Center where the interns will be provided with an introduction to banking, communication skills and customer service. Following this, the interns will be assigned to spend 5 weeks across the Bank’s various branches and departments to experience firsthand the day-to-day operations, processes and systems.
Salma Al-Hajjaj, General Manager of Human Resources at Gulf Bank said: “Gulf Bank is committed to playing an active role in the support of youth and education. By allowing students to become involved in the actual operations and systems within the Bank, we are educating them on the different skills, the level of team work and commitment required by each individual in the real work environment. We are pleased to welcome the students of GUST to the Bank and hope they take the maximum advantage of this opportunity and enjoy the experience.”
Through this summer internship program, Gulf Bank aims to reinforce its belief in the importance of equipping young people with the knowledge and insight into the business world. Gulf Bank is committed to leading by example, making real and tangible contributions to the Kuwait community and specifically to the young people of Kuwait.
