For all those who are looking for jobs in banks, there is some good news for them. Private sector lender HDFC Bank is looking to hire 5,000 professionals in next 2-3 years. On Wednesday, HDFC Bank along with Manipal Global Academy of BFSI has launched a future bankers programme for training and grooming candidates and a job opportunity at the private sector lender on completion of the course. Keeping in view the skill requirements in the digital era, the bank has done this tie-up.
"Digitalisation is changing the skill requirements and for personal banking, we require candidates who are ready to interact with customers. Over a period of time, all our fresher hiring will be through such tie-ups," PTI quoted a bank spokesperson as saying.
The main objective of the Future Bankers Program is to create a pipeline of qualified young executives who will give customers a uniform, high-quality service experience, and go on to become future industry leaders. HDFC Bank will provide opportunities to bright, young aspirants from across the country looking to grow with India's largest private bank. The upcoming batch of Future Bankers Program (Classroom Training + on the job Internship) ("Program") is expected to start by September.
The one-year course costing ₹3.3 lakh (plus taxes), once completed guarantees placement with HDFC Bank. The starting salary for the job is ₹4 lakh per annum plus allowances, depending on the category of town/city of posting, the bank said in a statement.
The HDFC Bank spokesperson said at present, they have tie-ups wherein candidates undergo shorter courses of two- three months, whereas the new partnership is a PG diploma with intensive training.
Before being admitted for the diploma, a candidate will be interviewed by the bank and the diploma is split between six months of classroom training and six months at the bank as an intern, the spokesperson said.
