We believe in developing the talent of the future through dedicated programmes for young people. It's good for our business and for the communities in which we operate. We know that the world of retail offers exciting opportunities for young individuals starting out in their careers whether they want to work behind the scenes in a discipline such as finance, HR, legal and marketing or be focused on front line. Alshaya has developed a range of dedicated programmes designed to help young local citizens to explore the opportunities open to them and to help them enter the world of work. These include:
Graduate Recruitment Programme
Twice a year Alshaya selects an intake of young Kuwaiti graduates to join our business, initially on a six month development programme. As well as attending dedicated training sessions, each graduate has a job placement within an area of the business that reflects their studies and career goals. Successful participants who show the right skills and commitment are then offered roles within Alshaya on a full time basis. Over 100 graduates have come through our programme and many are now rising into management positions within the company. For info contact email@example.com.
Alshaya Retail Academy
The Academy in Riyadh, KSA, provides professional and certified training courses for Saudi citizens that are thinking about a career in the retail industry. As the first of its kind in the Kingdom, young Saudi men and women gain first-hand experience and learn about store management, customer care, marketing and merchandising; taught and administered by leading experts and professionals in the retail industry.

Kuwaiti students in their final year at school and those studying at university are eligible to apply for Alshaya's annual summer intern programme. With the majority of their time spent in store interns get an insider's view of what it is like to work for one of the most dynamic parts of the private sector. The programme is open to Kuwaiti nationals. For info contact www.mgrp.org.kw or call 1884448.
Retail Management Programme
Great retail operators learn about managing the business by working from the ground up and Alshaya's 'Retail Management Programme' is a 24-month scheme that introduces individuals to the basics of trading and the art of retail sales. A structured curriculum that combines 'on the job' experience with dedicated training sessions sees participants begin as sales associates, rising up to supervisor level and eventually becoming assistant store managers within a 24-month period. Students enrolled in the programme will benefit from on-the-job training that hones their skills and equips them with the right tools to become future retail leaders. The programme is open to nationals in selected markets. For info contact email@example.com.
