This collaboration introduces QFC firms to Bayt’s privilege client programme, initiates the feasibility of onboarding graduates to internships in QFC entities and spurs initiatives to upskill startup talents. Bayt shall also extend its products and services to QFC firms at a special rate.
The agreement was signed by Sheikha Alanoud bint Hamad al-Thani, deputy chief executive and chief business officer, QFC Authority and Sinan Jaber, general manager, Bayt.
Under the MoU there will be mutual collaboration in innovative trends in the workforce such as hybrid work, learning, skills, career pathways, talent acquisition and internal mobility, talent intelligence, diversity, and organisational success.
"Qatar is seeing a greater need for skilled talent, fuelled by its rapid economic growth. We are happy to partner with Bayt and provide an accessible and cost-effective infrastructure that will help Qatar’s talent pool match their skills with the right jobs and organisations,” said Sheikha Alanoud.
This association very much aligns with QFC’s initiatives in supporting Qatar’s youth, elevating the knowledge of industry professionals, and promoting entrepreneurship by supporting startups and small and medium enterprises or SMEs, according to her.
