Banco Absa launches 8th edition of Ready to Work program to train young Mozambicans for the job market

Banco Absa announced the launch of the 8th edition of the Ready to Work program in Maputo on Wednesday, January 31. The program aims to prepare around five thousand young people for the job market, offering strategic tools for the transition from academic life to the professional world.

Hanifa Hassangy, Director of People and Culture at Absa Bank, highlighted the importance of the program for Mozambican youth, stressing that the initiative aims to promote the development of interpersonal skills, communication, financial, business and professional skills, which are fundamental for young people to start their careers.

Since it began in 2016, the program has trained more than 12,000 young Mozambicans. Hassangy stressed that Ready to Work is also open to young people aged 16 and over, to offer experiences that can spark interest and guide their future careers.

Pedro Mendes, country manager of Flow Group, a global human development consultancy, pointed out that this year’s edition will maintain the hybrid format, allowing young people to take part both in person and virtually, with a view to mass participation.

The Ready to Work program is an initiative that aims not only to train young people, but also to inspire them to believe in themselves and to seek their maximum potential in the job market.
