HDFC Bank has kick started its ‘Rising Bankers’ programme. This eight-month certification programme for aspiring bankers will train the participants for customer- facing roles. The Bank has tied up with Amity Global Business School (AGBS) for this programme.
The Bank intends to hire 750 to 1000 people under the programme, who will be focussed on providing a better customer experience, and will be placed across all geographies in the country.
Eligible candidates, who wish to pursue a career in the banking industry are first required to take an online test or an assessment as part of the selection process. Following this, they will have to appear for a personal interview before being selected.
Only those between 21 to 26 years of age by the end of Jan 2022 may apply. The candidates need to be full-time graduate having scored at least 50 per cent in graduation or should be a final year student awaiting results. The applicants should not have any relative working at HDFC Bank or enrolled as part of the Rising Bankers or Future Bankers programme at HDFC bank. Candidates with any pending legal cases against them in any court of law will not be considered.
The online test will assess the candidates on English language, quantitative ability, personality and sales aptitude.
