NBB takes part in National Fintech Talent Programme

MANAMA: National Bank of Bahrain (NBB) is taking part in Bahrain Fintech Bay (BFB)’s National Fintech Talent Programme.

NBB is among founding partners of Bahrain Fintech Bay and is actively involving its management and staff in initiatives being rolled out to support the growth and acceleration of the kingdom’s fintech ecosystem including demand for well-trained talent.

The inaugural Fintech Talent Programme, which is also supported by Tamkeen, focuses on ensuring Bahrainis master the skills and knowledge needed to capitalise on new opportunities being created by fintech disruption.

It has been developed in partnership with global experts in finance and technology, including Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, and international blockchain and artificial intelligence academies.

The programme consists of a six-month internship, where participating candidates will have the opportunity to receive mentorship from within partner organisations of Bahrain FinTech Bay.

Through its participation in the programme, NBB has already selected and engaged with an intern who has joined the bank’s IT department.

The intern will work within a team environment learning how to devise new and innovative fintech solutions.

NBB chief human resources officer Dana Buheji said, “We’re delighted to take a leading role in supporting human capital development in this critical area through our participation in the Fintech Talent Programme, the first of many initiatives we aim to undertake with Bahrain Fintech Bay. The development of fintech solutions and the enhancement of digital capabilities are essential to future sustainable growth for NBB and the broader financial services sector in the kingdom.”

BFB chief executive Khalid Saad said, “The programme aims to equip the next generation of young Bahrainis with the necessary skills to be future leaders in the fintech space and an opportunity for Bahrainis to gain their experience in NBB will support in achieving the programme’s objectives.”
