HUMAN DEVELOPMENT

The QFC Regulatory Authority is dedicated to helping build a sustainable financial services workforce for the State of Qatar. With a focus on strengthening local expertise and ties to the community, this has been achieved through the provision of quality career opportunities for existing staff to acquire new skills, and by the strategic placement of new staff as a source of new ideas and regulatory expertise. The goal is to continue to develop a vibrant team with a broad regulatory frame of reference, thus  providing  the required breadth and depth in knowledge and experience to become a regulator that is on par with the best in the world.

Of primary importance to strengthening the QFC Regulatory Authority team, is the continued development of quality employment opportunities for Qatari national staff, in line with the QFC Regulatory Authority’s support for the Human Development Pillar of the Qatar National Vision 2030. 

At the heart of our efforts to unleash new opportunities for the people of Qatar, is the Graduate Fellowship Programme (GFP).   The GFP offers an intensive 12 month on the job training programme to top tier Qatari graduates.   Since 2006 talented graduates take up this challenge and plans are to expand the programme to further benefit from this important source of talent, with a view to ensuring the future success and sustainability of the Regulatory Authority.   The dividends of the GFP are apparent in the career trajectory of the previous participants who currently contribute in increasingly  senor regulatory  and policy related roles. 

The QFC Regulatory Authority operates to the highest international standards in its employment practices, in line with the QFC Employment Law, the International Labor Organisation’s International Standards, and the first pillar of the Qatar National Vision 2030, the “development of all its people to enable them to sustain a prosperous society”.
