Kenya’s first fully fledged Islamic bank, First Community Bank Ltd. (FCB) has stepped up its recruitment of key personnel with the objective of commencing operations in the next few months.
The bank, which has links to Kuwaiti investors is seeking to recruit senior personnel to head its risk management, operations, treasury, corporate and retail banking arms as it opens branch networks through out the region.
First Community Bank Ltd. was in May 2007 granted approval by the Minister of Finance to conduct “banking business’’ under the Banking Act. First Community which is yet to commence operations intends to operate as a fully fledged Islamic Bank.
