According to the statement, “Further, the program will offer training across several departments encompassing; functional simulations, introduction to the bank’s departments, as well as training on different soft skills, team building exercises, first aid, and sign language training.”

All training at Evolve is led by NBB’s Talent Development Team with the support of volunteering NBB professionals and several local training institutes.

Commenting on the Evolve program, Mr. Mohamed Mazen Matar, Head of Talent Development at NBB, said that, “Following the tremendous success of last year’s summer training program, we are pleased to kick off Evolve for a second consecutive year.

The program has enabled us to actively invest and engage in the training and development of Bahraini youth in line with our commitment to nurture the next generation of industry leaders. NBB continues to honor its vision of enriching the lives of generations by grooming the local youth as the Kingdom’s future workforce,” Mr. Matar added.
