The Young Professionals Recruitment Programme
The programme is designed for high calibre young professionals who will not be more than thirty (30) years at the time of recruitment. The selected candidates will be appointed as Young Trainee Professional Staff in the Bank under a two (2)-year fixed term contract. The candidates will observe a probationary period of six (6) months during which each party may terminate the relationship without prior notice. However, where the performance of the Young Trainee Professional Staff is deemed to be satisfactory during the probationary period, their appointment shall be converted into an open-ended contract which means they will be permanent members of staff of the Bank.
During their appointment, the Young Trainee Professional Staff will be posted to different Departments on a rotational basis to make them familiar with activities of the Bank and integrate them into a team where they will make positive contributions. Furthermore, the Trainee Professional Staff will work under the supervision of senior staff in order to become acquainted with the various Departments, Policies and Programmes of the Bank.
