Basics for Success

What is Mutamahin?

Mutamahin is an Arabic word that means “apprentice.” The Mutamahin challenge is a one of a kind opportunity for fresh university graduates to gain internship positions at some of the top institutions in Bahrain.

The challenge includes specific group and individual challenges in the form of workshops carefully designed to equip the participants with skills necessary to enter the workforce. It is designed in the form of a competition that aims to enhance the employability of all those taking part.

Mutamahin is more than just a competition; it is a great platform for participants to kick-start their career, improve their skills, and work with world-class trainers.

Program Structure


60 fresh graduates per annum will undergo a total of multiple training modules, once every week starting from February.


Each module will be covered in a workshop designed for a duration of 1 day to be conducted on a group and individual work approach.


Each module is taught by a highly qualified specialized trainer to ensure proper development of these specific skills and ensure a thorough grasp of the content being taught.


Throughout the program, participants will be continuously monitored and evaluated to select the top performers as winners who will be awarded internships at some of the top financial institutions in Bahrain.
