Stanbic Bank Tanzania has recruited six graduate trainees under its 2017 graduate program that aims at identifying and nurturing young talents to take on leadership positions at the institution and the banking industry.
The program is tailored to encourage high-level growth with professional qualifications and training critical to a career in banking.
Speaking to the graduates during the Executive Committee (EXCO) induction session in Dar es Salaam recently, Stanbic Bank Tanzania CEO Ken Cockerill said “Our graduate program is designed to develop our future business leaders and we count on you to play a significant role in shaping the direction of the organization as we move forward in this dynamic and rapidly changing world in which we operate.”
On behalf of EXCO, the bank’s Head of Human Capital, Eutropia Vegula welcomed the graduates to the bank and assured them that “You have made the right decision in choosing Stanbic, the bank prides itself as an institution where great careers are made. And this program is illustrative of the bank’s commitment to human development as underscored in the Second Five Year Development Plan (FYDPII) as a pillar that is critical to the transformation of the economy into a middle-income country.”
Representing the newly inducted trainees, Juliana Doreen Kheri said “We are delighted to have been selected amongst thousands of other brilliant graduates and we are determined to make a noteworthy contribution that will assist the bank to attain its objectives.”
The process for shortlisting began in June during the bank’s career fair at the University of Dar Es Salaam.
Following a rigorous selection process, six graduates were chosen and presented with an opportunity to begin their careers with Stanbic Bank Tanzania.
