MUSCAT, 28 March 2018
The appeal of Bank Muscat as the ‘best place to work in Oman’ attracted a large turnout of prospective job seekers at the Career and Opportunities Fair organised by the College of Banking and Financial Studies (CBFS) under the auspices of H.E Tahir Bin Salim Al Amri, Executive President of the Central Bank of Oman.
Highlighting career development and training opportunities available to qualified Omani nationals, the Bank personnel were on hand to meet enthusiastic job seekers and interact with them on various career options. The graduating CBFS students submitted CVs expressing keen desire to work with the Sultanate’s leading financial institution.
The Bank highlighted Shahadati finance, which opens up a great higher education opportunity for Omani youth and citizens. Quality education is the key to a secure future and Shahadati makes it achievable by encouraging Omani youth and employed citizens to pursue college or higher education at home or abroad. Shahadati ensures that customers do not feel the financial burden while pursuing college or higher education programmes.
Designed to help Omani youth achieve career advancement with relevant educational qualifications, Shahadati finance covers full expenses, including tuition fees, accommodation, transportation, books and other education related expenses.
A regular participant at the CBFS Career Fair, Bank Muscat seizes every opportunity to extend support to Omani nationals seeking career development and training opportunities. Sustainable human resources development is one of the key priorities of the Bank.
As the nation’s leading banking partner, Bank Muscat attaches great importance to national initiatives, especially human resources development aimed at contributing to Oman’s future by investing in talent which is the real wealth of the nation. Every year, Bank Muscat welcomes new recruits to take up various positions in the Bank. The absorption of new employees reflects the Bank’s focus to develop its young Omani leadership.
In tandem with the Royal directive of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said to create 25,000 new jobs for young jobseekers, the Bank, in coordination with the Ministry of Manpower, was one of the private sector institutions to take the lead in implementing the directive of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos and partner with the government to provide new job opportunities to Omani youth and develop their talents.
Bank Muscat has the distinction of outstanding leadership at all levels and has achieved 94.57 per cent Omanisation, giving priority for Omanis to occupy key positions. The Bank’s human resources strategy is notable in maintaining gender diversity as 48 per cent of employees are women holding various positions, including senior management positions.
Bank Muscat reckons its competent people as key strength and is focused on equipping them to make vital contributions to the Bank's growth and success. The Bank plays a prominent role in the development of Omani talent and is committed to investing in improving their skills and expertise.
The development of human resources is a priority in the Bank, providing relevant educational and training opportunities to employees. The training and development programmes are carried out through specialised courses conducted by accredited training centers or through academic links with colleges, universities and leading training institutes at the regional and global levels. The Jadara Talent Management programme serves as the platform for all training and development programmes in the Bank.
