OCBC Bank launches post-pandemic "leap" recruitment and development programme
OCBC Bank (Malaysia) Berhad (OCBC Bank) has rolled out a visionary post-pandemic recruitment programme targeted at premier banking senior relationship managers with the promise of a development programme that primes them for roles in the coveted premier private client advisory space.
This comes on the back of its move to bring in new talent to the Bank’s thriving wealth management business and premier segment.
Unveiling the LEAP – Learn, Excel, Advance, Prosper – programme today, OCBC Bank Managing Director and Head of Consumer Financial Services Ms Anne Leh said the initiative anticipates the growing number of opportunities that are set to arise from the further opening up of the economy and the move toward endemicity.
“Tomorrow, the country begins the transition to endemicity, and opportunities will begin to arise. We would like to help both our existing and prospective staff who are keen to develop their skills in meeting the distinctive needs of the highest segment of our retail clientele to get to work confidently and with a sense of direction. This is a structured career programme crafted to bring in altogether new talent to the bank. Yes, we are actively recruiting those who see themselves moving ultimately from premier banking advisory and relationship management to the distinctive premier private client advisory role,” she said.
The programme involves a structured onboarding experience, structured salary framework as the staff progresses, wealth management academy training via the Wealth Management Institute or Asian Banking School, and a competitive monthly incentive payout. There will also be opportunities for job rotation and career mentoring.
“We are looking forward to welcoming talented individuals with an appetite for growth and innovation as we ramp up our digital banking agenda to better serve our customers. We will provide them with the know-how and equip them with the necessary intensive training and digital infrastructure support,” Ms Leh added.
OCBC Bank has, over the years, been steadily growing its wealth management and digital banking services. To-date more than 300 of its premier banking relationship management staff have undergone the all-important training with the Asian Banking School (ABS). ABS and OCBC Bank teamed up about six years ago to raise the bar on bankers’ mastery of the complexities of wealth management through a 13-module training programme.
The unprecedented collaborative effort equips the Bank’s relationship managers with best-in-class wealth management knowledge both for the benefit of customers as well as themselves through a sustainable career-defining and perspective-enhancing programme.
