VIVA, Kuwait’s newest and most advanced mobile telecommunications service provider, hailed the success of its two day walk-in interview event where it welcomed young Kuwaiti professionals and interviewed them for 10 minutes. This event that was initiated by VIVA’s Human Resources (HR) team was held at Hotel Missoni in Kuwait, on 15 and 16 May 2012.
Dr. Waleed Al Tararwah – Chief Human Resources Officer at VIVA said: “We are very pleased with the outcome of our two day Walk-In interview event. Over the two days, the HR team interviewed more than 1,500 Kuwaiti candidates and gave them a short brief about the working environment at VIVA. At VIVA, we have a firm belief in recruiting, developing and retaining Kuwaiti talent and investing in community initiatives that encourage young people to join the telecommunications sector. We are very proud of our initiative and successful turn out, since we are the only telecom company in Kuwait that has opened the door to welcome local talents in a recruitment drive such as this.
“As a Kuwaiti company, we are committed to recruit and develop Kuwaiti talents as well as invest in community initiatives that encourage young people to join the telecommunications sector. VIVA recently signed a memorandum of understanding with the Manpower and Government Restructuring Program (MGRP), implementing the government’s policy that aims at providing job opportunities for the Kuwaitis in the private sector. In light of this, VIVA is committed to growing and developing our business successfully and as a part of this, we are committed to investing in our Human Resources in order to attract and retain Kuwaiti talents and investing in community initiatives that encourage young people to join the telecommunications sector,” added Al Tararwah.
VIVA’s Human Resources, Marketing, and Public Relations teams have worked tirelessly to ensure that all aspects regarding the Walk-In Interviews meet the company’s objective through a rigorous two day interview screening process, and identifying talented young Kuwaitis who will be good candidates to join VIVA.
VIVA would like to thank all the young applicants who came to the two day Walk-In Interview event. VIVA will continue to enhance its employees’ insight of the telecom industry while also providing its customers with the excellent services and telecom solutions today and in the future.
