Zain, the leading digital service provider in Kuwait, has recognised the progress of graduates of the H&S Store Summer Internship Program held for students during the summer in partnership with Zain’s Future University Network (FUN) programme.
The recognition took place during the closing ceremony held at the Zain Innovation Center (ZINC) in the company’s main headquarters in Shuwaikh.
Zain’s partnership with this programme came as part of the company’s Corporate Sustainability and Social Responsibility Strategy, which centres around the development of the education and youth sectors, especially in regards to nurturing and developing business skills for young people.
The company was keen to offer world-class specialised programmes for those who are interested in developing their talents within all areas. Zain, being a leader in the Kuwaiti private sector, believes in the importance of enriching the talents of the community in which it operates by adopting such initiatives.
Zain hosted the students and H&S Store officials at its innovation centre (ZINC) in the company’s main headquarters in Shuwaikh, where the summer internship programme graduates were recognised for completing the programme during the summer season in partnership with Zain’s Future University Network (FUN) programme.
The H&S Store Summer Internship Program aimed at developing students’ skills within various administrative and technical areas, including product marketing, customer service, smartphone maintenance and more. The programme also aimed at preparing the students for the job market after completing their studies by working in part-time jobs during the summer vacation.
Zain’s Future University Network (FUN) programme is a sustainable youth-tailored CSR programme for students that bridges the gap between studying and a unique work experience at Zain. This is achieved by recruiting youth as the brand’s main ambassadors. FUN is considered one of the largest sustainable projects that Zain has been developing over the years since its first edition in 2008.
It offers university students a valuable opportunity to benefit from work experience to gain and develop the skills and expertise that they need to enter the job market both professionally and personally.
Zain is always keen on supporting educational initiatives and programmes that cater to develop the youth’s skills and talents, including LOYAC’s KON Social Entrepreneurship Program brought to Kuwait in collaboration with Babson College in Boston.
H&S Store was established in 2011 with the aim of offering its customers a range of high-quality products with a hassle-free shopping experience to insure customer satisfaction in Kuwait and throughout the GCC region, as well as providing specialised maintenance and repair workshops for smart devices.
