Tanzania: Bank Launches Graduate Recruitment Scheme

BARCLAYS Bank Tanzania Limited (BBTL) has launched a programme aimed at promoting professional skills among graduates in the country.

Investing in building skills and professionalism to youth is an effective strategy for reduction of unemployment and increase credibility and integrity of firms that hires them," an official said over the weekend.

BBTL Head of Human Resources, Eutropia Mwambeleko, said at the launch of Pan African Graduate Programme that many youth from universities in Tanzania lacked skills to cope with competition for employment in the banking industry.

"There are many young men and women from universities coming in the banking industry, but most face skills challenge in the market," she said.

She said the programme was aimed at making changes in the banking industry. BBTL has so far invested 550m/- that was spent on training 10 youth in the banking industry.

"Every year Barclays Bank Tanzania provides opportunities for high potential, relatively new graduates currently employed by the bank to move into management trainee positions through a structured development programme.

"The bank looks for highly motivated, energetic and competent individuals to undertake the one year development programme," she explained.
