In the context of its leading social responsibility role and commitment toward society and youth, Commercial International Bank-Egypt (CIB) continues to support university students to be qualified for the labor market, through developing their skills, granting employment opportunities across the Bank’s different departments, and providing them with professional training to keep up with the labor market requirements.
For this purpose, the Human Resources (HR) Department at CIB-Egypt exerts all efforts in implementing the Bank’s strategy and creating communications channels with youth, including the contribution in many employment fairs at public and private Egyptian universities, aiming to approach youth and create communication channels with them. During the first quarter of this year, the Bank participated in four employment fairs at Alexandria University, Cairo University, British University in Egypt (BUE) and French University in Egypt (FUE).
Moreover, the HR Department held also for the first time a “One Day Recruitment” at its Smart Village premises, in association with the German University in Cairo (GUC). Through this unique, different experience in the Egyptian labor market, the Bank invited GUC students and fresh graduates to submit their resumes and participate in this employment event, during which they had interviews and job tests. Over this six-hour event, qualified candidates were selected to join the Bank.
The Bank’s support for young job seekers is not limited to granting them lucrative opportunities only, but CIB-Egypt has also been keen to provide educational lectures and seminars for university students about the labor market in general and the banking sector in specific, organized and coordinated by the HR Department. One of the recent lectures was given by Mr. Ahmed Issa, Deputy CEO Consumer Banking at CIB-Egypt, held at the American University in Cairo (AUC). During this lecture, which witnessed a considerable attendance, Mr. Issa spoke about the labor market and career opportunities of the banking sectors. Another recent session was given by Mr. Rashwan Hammady, Head of Business Banking at CIB, at Cairo University, during which he clarified the significance of Small and Medium enterprises (SMEs) segment, being an integral factor for economic growth, and highlighted the role of CIB supporting this dynamic sector.
CIB-Egypt continues to attract young universities’ students and graduates and pave the career path for them in the market through the HR Department, which will be participating in upcoming different employment fairs for talents acquisition. In addition, more sessions and workshops for youth development will be organized, with the aim of improving their abilities, enrich their knowledge and grant them the principal career experience.
