Commercial Bank, Qatar’s first private bank, has been running its Young Bankers’ Summer Internship Programme focusing on its digital banking channels.
The successful internship programme is now into its fourth consecutive year and is designed for children of customers between the ages of 13 and 17.
Commercial Bank invited all customers, via the Bank’s social media channels, to enroll their children and received more than 250 applicants.
The programme has been helping students gain work experience in a customer-facing environment under the guidance of branch staff.
Joseph Abraham, Commercial Bank Group CEO, said: “By providing rewarding real-life work experience for youth in Qatar focusing on our digital banking channels, the Young Bankers Summer Internship Programme is a great example of how our business objectives can intertwine with our CSR responsibilities to the Qatari community.”
The Young Bankers are placed within the bank’s network where they have been explaining and encouraging the use of digital banking channels such as mobile and internet banking.
Reham Thawabi, Head of Retail Branches, said: “Equipped with iPads, our Young Bankers are enthusiastically putting their knowledge to good use by demonstrating to our branch customers how easy it is to sign up and use our online services.”
