Bank of Maldives (BML) continues its Graduate Internship Program for a third year, with 15 new graduates and students from local higher education institutions.
The 12-month internship program allows students to gain on-the-job experience and provide a pathway to permanent employment within the bank and other financial institutions in the Maldives. Interns will be rotated across a number of business units, departments, and branches to gain experience and develop skills. Each intern is assigned to a mentor to guide them through their time at the bank.
BML’s People and Change Director, Sahar Waheed said the bank is delighted to welcome its third batch of interns to its Graduate Internship Program. He said that the program is a great opportunity for graduates to gain valuable knowledge and on-the job experience across various banking functions and help them develop their professional competencies.
Interns will also be given the opportunity to earn as they receive their on-the-job training. On successful completion of the program, they will also be eligible to apply for full-time positions at the Bank. BML launched the internship program in 2018, and so far, 30 interns have enrolled in the program while 14 interns were given permanent positions at the Bank.
Bank of Maldives has received the ‘Asia’s Best Employer Brand Award’ for three consecutive years from the World HRD Congress and the Employer Branding Institute for the Bank’s commitment to people excellence and its progressive policies in the areas of recruiting, developing, and retaining talent.
