The Bahrain Labour Fund (Tamkeen) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with digital bank, Singapore Gulf Bank (SGB) to support the institution’s training and employment of Bahrainis in high-value roles and launch in Bahrain.

Maha Abdulhameed Mofeez, Tamkeen Chief Executive said that this announcement comes in line with the directives of His Highness Shaikh Isa bin Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Isa bin Salman Education Charitable Trust and Chairman of the Bahrain Labour Fund (Tamkeen), to support job opportunities for Bahrainis through Tamkeen’s employment and career development programmes.

Mofeez said that the strategic collaboration with SGB will bolster investment in Bahrain’s thriving financial services sector, a key sector for the Kingdom, contributing 18.1 % to Bahrain’s total real GDP in Q3 of 2023, the highest among all non-oil sectors.

The partnership will also support the employment of local talents.

SGB Co-CEO, Aureole Foong expressed his appreciation to Tamkeen for its support, adding, “We look forward to creating a lasting impact on the sector and contributing to the development of Bahrainis working in banking and finance.”
