Kuwait’s fastest-growing telecom operator, VIVA, announced its Platinum sponsorship of the 8th Jobs Forum Exhibition. This sponsorship comes in line with VIVA’s commitment to providing employment opportunities to Kuwaiti youth. The Job Forum is held under the patronage of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and attended by HE Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah, Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs and Minister of State for Municipality Affairs, and will be held at Arraya Ballroom between 13 and 16 January 2013 from 9am until 1pm and from 5pm until 9pm.
VIVA’s Chief Executive Officer, Salman Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Badran said: "We are very pleased to take part in the Kuwait Jobs Forum for the second consecutive year. VIVA has invested heavily in the professional development of Kuwaiti talent and in offering young Kuwaitis opportunities to build their careers and contribute to our country’s economic advancement. At VIVA, we believe that it is part of our social responsibility to help provide youth with suitable career development opportunities, and by participating in the Kuwait Jobs Forum we are demonstrating our commitment to this important cause.
It is noteworthy to mention that in 2012, VIVA had signed a memorandum of agreement with the Manpower and Government Restructuring Program (MGRP) which committed the company to supporting MGRP’s ongoing efforts to provide job opportunities for Kuwaiti nationals in the private sector through the support of small businesses and training programs.
