Hires several nationals to fill vacancies in Sharqiya Branches

Muscat, February 11, 2019: As part of its efforts to enable young Omanis to start their careers in the banking sector, Oman Arab Bank (OAB), in collaboration with the Ministry of Manpower, organised a series of job interviews for citizens at the OAB Head Office. The shortlisted interviewees will soon be joining the Bank’s team to fill vacancies within its branches in the Sharqiya Governorate.

Commenting on this, Adil Al Rahbi, Head of Human Resources Division at OAB said, “We organised these interviews in line with our commitment to provide young Omanis with local job opportunities, especially for those looking for such opportunities in Sharqiya. This in turn, also provides them with an invaluable opportunity to kick start their careers in the Banking sector in one of the finest financial institutions in the Sultanate.”

It is worth noting that several job interviews were conducted by members from the Human Resources and Retail Banking Divisions. Shortly thereafter a number of candidates were shortlisted to fill retail banking vacancies within the Bank’s branches in the Sharqiya Governorate. The new joiners are expected to begin working in the new positions with the next couple of days.

Al Rahbi added, “We were impressed with the level of skill, knowledge, and capabilities showcased by each of the candidates who applied for the positions. We are confident that those selected will be a quality addition to the OAB team in Sharqiya. We are honoured to welcome them into the OAB family. We would like also to extend our gratitude and appreciation to the employees in the Ministry of Manpower, who provided our team with support in the communication process as well as in scheduling interviews with the candidates. Their assistance has been invaluable in facilitating our mission and achieving the Bank’s objectives.”

Oman Arab Bank is proud to have achieved the highest Omanisation percentage within the banking sector, nearing 96%. It is also one of the first banks to be established in Oman with a rich and proud history.
