Chennai: HDFC Bank in partnership with Manipal Global Academy of BFSI, has launched Future Bankers program, which aims to turn young graduates into highly-trained, customer-facing personnel.
A release said the programme entails on-campus learning, an internship, and a full-time job opportunity at the bank on successful completion.
It said the program will help HDFC create a pipeline of qualified young executives and ensure a consistent, high-quality customer service experience across geographies, regions and language.
The program is a full-time residential course where participants spend the first six months at Manipal Global Academy of BFSI’s campus and the last six with the bank as an intern. All successful candidates will receive a post-graduate diploma certificate in sales and relationship banking, and will be hired by the bank at its different branches across the country as personal bankers.
The starting salary for the job is Rs 4 lakh per annum, plus allowances, depending on the category of town/city of posting. The bank intends to hire 5,000 such professionals over the next two to three years.
“We believe that customer experience will define the future of banking. Giving them a uniform yet high-quality experience across touchpoints is what will set a winner apart. The Future Bankers program will allow the bank to have at its disposal a cadre of highly-trained, well-rounded professionals to do just that,” said Razdan.
