We believe in developing the talent of the future through dedicated youth programmes which benefit our business as well as 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 the operations side in our stores. Alshaya has developed a range of dedicated programmes designed to help young people explore the opportunities open to them within Alshaya and to help them enter the world of work. These include:

Kuwaiti Graduate Programme:

Twice a year Alshaya selects an intake of young Kuwaiti graduates to join our business, initially on a six month development programme. Each graduate has a job placement within an area of the business that reflects their studies and career goals. In addition, all Graduate Trainees attend dedicated training sessions through the programme. 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 more information contact: and specify the scheme you are enquiring about.
