MAYBANK recently organised its eMpoweringTalents@Cambodia event, as part of its ongoing commitment to accelerate the development of skilled talents as well as help create a sustainable human capital pipeline for the country’s banking industry.
The event also aims to provide Cambodian youths with greater awareness of training and career opportunities in Maybank, which is South-East Asia’s fourth largest banking group by assets.
eMpoweringTalents@Cambodia was officially launched by National Bank of Cambodia On-Site Supervision deputy director Sok Ousa, Maybank Cambodia chairman Datuk Johan Ariffin and group chief human capital officer Nora Manaf in Maybank Tower, Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Also present were Malaysian ambassador to Cambodia Datuk Seri Hasan Malek, members of the board and management of Maybank Cambodia, as well as senior representatives and students from top universities in Phnom Penh.
eMpoweringTalents@Cambodia aims to showcase four of Maybank Group’s key career and development programmes – Branch Management Entry Level Pipeline (BMELP), Global Maybank Apprentice Programme (GMAP), Junior Watch High Potential Performer Integrated (HIP) Programme and Branch Manager Certification Programme (BMCP).
Nora said Maybank was honoured to organise the event to provide graduates and tertiary students a better understanding of the demands and requirements of a career in the financial services industry.
“We believe that we can give graduates and students in Cambodia that special insight into the different opportunities in this field and how they can build careers for themselves,” she said.
Nora explained that given the group’s significant operations in Cambodia with its 21 branches, Maybank was deeply committed to supporting the development of human capital in the country as it moves on to become an upper-middle income country by 2030.
“We believe eMpoweringTalents@Cambodia can help create a sustainable talent pipeline not only for Maybank but ultimately, also for the banking industry in Cambodia – from among the youths of the country,” she said.
At the event, graduates and students were given an opportunity to understand more about the various career programmes at the bank as well as obtain advise on career planning, job application and tips when attending interviews.
More than 150 students attended the event.
