Qatar Islamic Bank launches mobile app for banking training
Qatar Islamic Bank (QIB) has launched a mobile app to identify and train people in the country to work in the private banking sector.
Khalefa Al Mesalam, head of QIB Human Capital Group, says: “Through this mobile application, QIB aims to reach out to young talents and encourage them to work in Qatar’s banking sector. This initiative is part of QIB’s efforts to use the latest technological developments to motivate talented nationals to learn and grow.”
The bank’s “Management Associate fast track programme” is in line with the “Qatar National Vision 2030” and is designed to “enhance” the professional skills of fresh graduates and prepare them for supervisory roles in banking operations.
The programme features intensive learning programs, rotation between different departments and units in QIB, recognised professional certifications as well as mentoring and coaching sessions.
The mobile app is a supporting tool which helps QIB’s Human Capital Group to evaluate all programme candidates based on their skills, knowledge and personality traits in order to provide a “first holistic feedback” to the individuals as well as assess where they can fit better within a banking organisation.
Among other features, the app offers access to the programme’s reference materials, tips and reminders to the participants through push notifications, the possibility to provide feedback and interact with the coaches and mentors as well as game-based knowledge and skills self -assessments.
Upon completion of the programme and subject to a successful final assessment the participants will be confirmed in a permanent role at QIB.
