Ebrahim K. Kanoo has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the University of Bahrain to support and nurture students and graduates of the University through its Graduate Recruitment and Development Program.

The Ebrahim K. Kanoo Graduate Recruitment and Development Program is designed to be an extension of the learning journey, with added professional and technical aspects. The MoU with the University of Bahrain will see this unique program incorporate students from multiple disciplines across the university in fields such as marketing, engineering, business management and IT.

The program will see outstanding Bahraini students in their third year of university supported by the company and, upon graduation, be given an opportunity to work at one of the many divisions of Ebrahim K. Kanoo. The program is also open to fresh graduates with high GPAs to join the company through a job rotation schedule in order to understand every division of the company and see where their individual strengths can be best utilised.

On the occasion, Ebrahim K. Kanoo Managing Director; Mr. Talal Kanoo commented; “The University of Bahrain is a vital educational pillar in the kingdom and we are proud to be partners with them on this important program. This memorandum will see our Graduate Recruitment and Development Program benefit more Bahraini students and reach more people in the society. We look forward to growing this partnership and furthering our cooperation with the university.”

Prof Riyad Hamzah president of UOB “In order to contribute to the economic growth of Bahrain, it is critical that UOB works closely with the private sector. With this partnership, our students are able to gain valuable work experience, benefit financially and gain employment upon graduation. This is a win-win situation for everyone and we are delighted to be supporting EK Kanoo with the best talent in Bahrain’.
