Bahrain Bourse launches first edition of Capital Markets Apprenticeship Program

Manama, Feb. 15 (BNA): Following the directives of His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince and Prime Minister, to launch the second version of the National Employment Program that aims to create 25,000 jobs in 2021 and provide 10,000 training opportunities annually, Bahrain Bourse announced the launch of the Capital Markets Apprenticeship Program.


 “The program comes in line with Bahrain Bourse's belief in the importance of enhancing and spreading financial awareness to reach the largest possible number of beneficiaries across a wider segment of the society," Bahrain Bourse Chief Executive Officer Shaikh Khalifa bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa said.


"The program also complements Bahrain Bourse’s other awareness initiatives including the Smart Investor program, TradeQuest, and The Investment Academy, by providing youth the opportunity to gain practical experience in the workplace.”


The program aims to bridge the gap between the educational and practical aspects through a six months tenure where selected individuals will be working as full-time interns across Bahrain Bourse and Bahrain Clear, benefiting from advanced training in trading skills, research methods and Capital Market financial analysis, Shaikh Khalifa added.


“The program which targets Bahraini nationals holding a Bachelor’s degree or higher, is aimed at developing and enhancing the skills of Bahraini talented youth in the Capital Markets Sector, as well as preparing young Bahraini talents to further contribute to the development of the Capital Markets in the future,” Shaikh Khalifa said.


During the program’s tenure, the interns will undergo job rotation across different core functions within Bahrain Bourse and Bahrain Clear, gaining full and diversified exposure to Bahrain Bourse and Bahrain Clear’s operations and obtaining a full understanding on the Bahraini Market in specific, and the Capital Market sector in general.


The program will also equip the interns with the set of skills required to occupy high-level employment opportunities within the Capital Market.

Individuals interested to join the program who meet the prerequisite criteria can apply through filling in an application form via Bahrain Bourse’s website
