Hope Talents aims to recognize high-calibre talents in the Kingdom of Bahrain, create a community of support and networking, and identify suitable career placement opportunities, in addition to facilitating organisational growth by providing employers with vetted talents. In a first of its kind initiative in the region, fresh graduates or working professionals are encouraged to apply to the national database, where they will receive a unique opportunity for national and international placements, career growth and mobility, professional development through networking and workshops, and internship schemes.
On this occasion, Youth and Sports Affairs Minister and Hope Fund Chairman, His Excellency Aymen bin Tawfeeq Almoayed, said: “The launch of Hope Talents is the evolution of national efforts to attract and support young talents, who are the pillars of our nation. It is our privilege to implement the directives of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa to invest in skilled talents and encourage their progression as they contribute to the Kingdom’s growth and development, and to realise the vision of His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, to invest in the Kingdom’s human capital.”
His Excellency added: “Hope Talents is a unique initiative that is in line with the strategy of the Representative of His Majesty the King for Humanitarian Work and Youth Affairs, His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, that aims to focus on high-achieving national competencies in order to develop their talents and advance the youth sector in the Kingdom.”
Hope Talents’ General Manager, Latifa Mohamed, said: “The Kingdom of Bahrain has always been the talent hub of the region, and with the launch of Hope Talents we are identifying, attracting and uniting our high-merit talents onto one database. We aim to serve national talents by creating a community of support and growth, in addition to providing suitable placement opportunities”.
Hope Talents operates as a one-stop-shop for human capital needs and provides organisations in the Kingdom with flexible and tailored industry-leading sourcing, assessment and recruitment strategies. Hope Talents aims to match organisations with high-calibre and vetted candidates, who undergo an intense assessment process in order to be included in the national database.
A national internship scheme targeting fresh graduates with outstanding achievements and skills will also be launched to further achieve the mission to raise the bar and bring forth a new generation of high achievers to organisations across the Kingdom.
