Tamkeen supports employment of Bahrainis at PwC’s Regional Service Centre in Manama


Manama, Apr. 23 (BNA): 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. The centre aims to reach its operational potential in the coming years and will provide valuable training opportunities to enhance the technical expertise of its employees.

The project aligns with Tamkeen’s recently launched programmes to support the career development and employment of 50,000 Bahrainis annually. Tamkeen is playing a pivotal role by providing a comprehensive package to promote the employment of Bahraini nationals, which includes training and wages support.

Expressing her enthusiasm regarding the partnership, Her Excellency Ms. Maha Abdulhameed Mofeez, Chief Executive of Tamkeen said: “This partnership aligns with our mission to promote sustainable economic growth, enhance the competitive edge of national talent, and empower Bahraini graduates through employment and training. 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. This initiative comes in line with Tamkeen’s mandate to stimulate the economy and develop local talent to make them the first choice of employment in the labour market. This collaboration also confirms Tamkeen’s commitment to providing quality employment, and training opportunities for young Bahraini talent.”
