Mumbai : Timespro has launched a training course for graduates, aimed at bridging the skills-gap in the banking industry and transforming candidates into job-ready professionals.
Timespro has partnered with HDFC Bank to co-develop the content of the training course, titled ‘The Modern Banker’ programme.
Applicants will undergo a robust selection process and HDFC Bank will make a conditional offer of employment to selected candidates at the start of the course.
Extending to a little over 2 months, ‘The Modern Banker Programme’ will craft talented graduates under the age of 25, into professionals by training them for various retail (branch) banking roles such as personal bankers and tellers. The course is reasonably priced and value-for-money training for graduates. This intensive program will be imparted by the expert faculty of TimesPro at their state-of-the-art learning centres in select cities.
As a part of the selection process, prospective candidates will have to first compete through a written test. Qualifying candidates will be interviewed by TimesPro in the first round, followed by a final interview with HDFC Bank. So, in effect, students who enroll for the course have the prospects of a job with HDFC Bank at the commencement of the training program.
The programme will be held in cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Jaipur & Bhubaneswar. Further details on the programme are available on www.timespro.com/hdfcbank, or on the toll free number 1800-102-2323.
Placement offered by HDFC Bank will typically be in towns across in the region / state where training is held.
Commenting on this alliance, Mr. Deepak Lamba, Times Group, said, “The association with HDFC Bank will go a long way in fulfilling the TimesPro promise of providing skilled and employment-ready graduates to the financial services industry. We hope to create more such opportunities across various industries that will not only add value to businesses but also create employment opportunities across the country. The Times Group is pleased to further consolidate its relationship with HDFC Bank through this partnership.”
Speaking on the training programme, Mr. Philip Mathew, Chief People Officer, HDFC Bank said, “Finding fresh graduates with the right career and motivational fit is key to any talent acquisition strategy at entry level.
