HSBC Kuwait appointed six young talented Kuwaitis as part of its ongoing investment in future leaders and support of the country’s nationalization strategy.

“At HSBC we energize for growth as a key strategic priority in recruiting and retaining the best talent for an inclusive and diverse workforce to drive our business growth.

The six recruits are Adnan Dashti, Khaled AlAbbasi, Manar Esmael, Rakan Dashti, Sharifa AlKandari and Yousef AlBanay. They have all been successful in their applications after a rigorous selection process that included a series of online psychometric tests and analysis along with panel interviews and simulations.
HSBC Kuwait is maintaining its Kuwaitisation at 70% and has been working towards encouraging young Kuwaitis to join the private sector. The bank, in alliance with the British Council, conducted a series of webinars aimed at Kuwaiti students and universities during which the career opportunities within the private sector and more specifically banking and finance was highlighted.
