Q4 was often the busiest business season of banks, therefore most banks were preparing for the busy time in August.

Banks promoted the recruitment of employees at the same time with the launch of new products and deployment of many promotions to attract more customers.

According to the latest announcement from HCM City Development Joint Stock Commercial Bank (HDBank), in order to expand business operations as well as improve customer service quality, this bank recruited 1,000 employees in the corporate department and the individual customer department with many titles from experts to managers, along with detailed remuneration policies. The number of staff mentioned above was recruited to work in HCM City, Hanoi and 44 provinces across the country.

HDBank currently has about 6,200 employees working at 285 business locations nationwide, in addition to nearly 8,000 employees at subsidiary HD Saison working at nearly 14,000 financial transaction points.

A number of banks also planned to recruit thousands of employees this year, most likely to focus on the period from now to the end of the year.

For example, Asia Commercial Joint Stock Bank (ACB) launched a nationwide Partner Programme to search for 1,000 talents for positions as sales, operation, information technology personnel this year, but in the first 6 months, the number of ACB’s employees decreased by 168 people.

Nam A Commercial Joint Stock Bank (Nam A Bank) said it would recruit 2,000 employees nationwide to expand its network and develop business positions from expert level to management level in 2019, but the six-month financial report showed the number personnel was basically stable.

Earlier in the first six months, many banks recruited a large number of employees. Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Foreign Trade of Vietnam (Vietcombank) increased 1,136 people to 17,848 people; Tien Phong Commercial Joint Stock Bank (TPBank) increased 682 people to 5,508 employees; Military Commercial Joint Stock Bank (MBBank) and Vietnam Technological and Commercial Joint-Stock Bank (Techcombank) respectively added 739 people and 529 people

According to experts, the financial and banking industry had long been a challenging market. Banks always needed a professional and enthusiastic staff to carry out short-term as well as long-term strategies. This was an important foundation for Vietnamese banks to be ready to innovate to keep pace with the current industrial revolution and changes taking place in the world. Therefore, recruitment demand would tend to increase in the near future.

HR Asia recently announced the list of the best places to work in Asia, in which the banking sector had six names including four domestic banks including ACB, Saigon Hanoi Commercial Joint Stock Bank (SHB), HDBank and Vietnam Prosperity Joint-Stock Commercial Bank (VPBank), along with two foreign banks including Shinhan Bank and Standard Chartered.

Banks with the best working environment give attractive income to employees, clear promotion opportunities, well-trained and professionally advanced; be able to participate in dynamic internal activities thereby creating relationships with the collective and leadership. In addition, there are welfare policies such as unsecured loans, personal health care support through health insurance, life insurance, etc.
