Commercial Bank has announced that the “Young Bankers” have successfully completed the fourth annual Summer Internship Programme.
In this regard, an awards ceremony held at Commercial Bank Plaza was attended by the parents of the “Young Bankers” and the bank’s senior management. Commercial Bank received over 250 applications from customers via its social media channels to enrol their children into the Internship Programme.
The Internship Programme is designed for students aged 13 to 17 years who are the children of Commercial Bank customers, and is now in its fourth consecutive year.
Titled “Leading Change Via Digital Channels”, the two-month long programme focused on the digital evolution taking place within the banking industry, according to a press statement. Following an induction and training session, the students were placed within Commercial Bank’s 29-branch network and assigned the task of encouraging the use of digital banking channels available to Commercial Bank customers and explaining their benefits, all under the guidance and supervision of the bank’s staff.
Besides learning communication skills by working in the customer-facing environment of Commercial Bank branches, the students gained technical knowledge and an understanding of Commercial Bank’s digital channels such as Mobile Banking and Internet Banking, as well as latest market innovations such as the “Young Elite Savers Club” that provides benefits, discounts and interest-earning savings for minors, and Commercial Bank’s “e-Gift” feature that enables customers to electronically send a cash gift to their children, friends and family, and is designed to “deliver the joy of giving and receiving gifts, with the recipient receiving a personalised message”, the statement noted. Commercial Bank Group CEO Joseph Abraham said, “The ‘Young Bankers’ Summer Internship Programme is a special CSR event in the summer calendar for Commercial Bank as we have the privilege of working with young people and helping them on their journey towards becoming tomorrow’s business leaders, entrepreneurs and professionals.”
Commercial Bank EGM, Consumer Banking Amit Sah noted, “Commercial Bank leads the market for digital innovation and it is remarkable how quickly our ‘Young Bankers’ have grasped the benefits of using our digital banking channels and been able to demonstrate to our branch customers how easy they are to use.”
Commercial Bank AGM, head of Network Branch Reham Thawabi added, “The ‘Young Bankers’ Summer Internship empowers Qatari youth by equipping them with soft skills they can apply and use throughout their careers.”
