The Labour Fund, Tamkeen, has announced its support for the establishment of PwC Middle East’s Regional Service Delivery Centre in Bahrain, which will provide advisory and operational services across sectors.

This initiative aligns with the goals of Tamkeen’s National Employment Programme and aims to offer up to 250 employment opportunities for Bahraini nationals, enhancing local economic contributions.

The initiative strengthens Bahrain’s position from which local and international institutions can support the Kingdom and neighbouring countries, while working closely with other PwC delivery centres in the region.

Recruitment has begun for the first wave of Bahraini professionals, with an initial intake of 50 hires. Maha Abdulhameed Mofeez, Chief Executive of Tamkeen said: “This service centre will provide valuable experience to Bahrainis and contribute to the growth and development of sectors such as financial services, which contributed 18.1% to GDP during Q3 of last year.

Upskilling in sectors such as these provides rewarding opportunities for Bahrainis, while contributing to the Kingdom’s growth ambitions.

The sector is considered the highest in terms of remunerative wages for Bahrainis, as it contributed to the annual wage growth by 4.2% in the private sector during the same period.”

On his part, Mohamed Al Mahroos, Country Senior Partner in Bahrain, PwC Middle East, said, “Bahrain was selected as the location for our latest Regional Service Delivery Centre, due to its strategic location, favourable investment climate, and robust economic infrastructure supported by progressive regulations.”

Dalal Buhejji, Executive Director of Business Development – Financial Services at Bahrain Economic Development Board, said, “Owing to progressive regulatory frameworks, a thriving financial ecosystem, and a highly skilled workforce that combines local insight with international perspectives, Bahrain continues to support the ambitious expansion plans of leading industry players giving rise to global success stories with local roots.”
