Management Trainee

Steve Li
Segment Manager,
Personal Banking and Product Management Management Trainee 2012

I joined the bank as a fresh graduate in 2010 and thereafter, I started my professional career in the Personal Banking and Product Management. BOCHK has provided a lot of support and opportunities to help graduates transit from a student to an employee. In 2012, I was offered a Management Trainee position to further enhance my skills and work towards becoming a future leader of the bank. To my surprise, what I gained during this program is far beyond my expectation.

As one of the core values, BOCHK cherishes every individual and I am truly impressed by what the Bank has offered to a Management Trainee. Throughout the program, the Bank proactively communicated with me to understand my needs and career aspirations. Personalised training plan was designed for each MT, factoring in our preferences. Through various job rotations and on-the-job training, I had developed comprehensive understanding of the bank and business model, which enabled me to take lead in various strategic projects. I also got the chance to leverage my leadership skills by leading a team of summer interns for a challenging, yet fruitful project. This has boosted my confidence to become a true leader in the future.

From daily business analysis to management presentations, these experiences undoubtedly better equipped me with solid banking knowledge and supported my development in the banking career. I have expanded my professional network through different work opportunities, which is truly beneficial for career growth. Further, I am grateful for the mentorship programme. By interacting with the senior management, I gradually started seeing things from a different perspective. I also gained a lot of practical and invaluable insights for my personal development.

BOCHK is keen to provide us with international exposure. During my training as an MT, I am honoured to second to Bank of China’s headquarter in Beijing, which allowed me to further widen my network. Moreover, I had the chance to attend a one-week training in Shanghai. These experiences have certainly deepened my understanding of the ever-growing China market, which is critical to my long-term career development.

BOCHK continuously provides inspiring working opportunities and plenty support for our young employees to grow and achieve future success with the company. Come and join BOCHK to maximize your future career potential!

Charles Wong
Operation Manager,
Bank-wide Operation Department
Management Trainee 2011

It's my sixth year with BOCHK after my graduation. I started my career in the Bank-wide Operation Department. Thanks to the all-round training programme offered by the Bank, I was given a lot of opportunities and exposures in various business operations.  All of these are definitely helpful in fostering my personal growth and career development. In 2011, I was promoted to be a Management Trainee.

BOCHK treasures every staff member and devotes lots of resources to talent development. The Bank offers a Management Trainee Programme, under which mentors give tremendous support to their respective mentees. I take great pleasure and honour to have a charismatic mentor who generously shared with me his valuable experiences and insights in the banking industry, which gave me countless inspirations for improvement and continuous development.

The Bank-wide Operation Department where I currently work places great emphasis on cost-efficiency and productivity. I participated in a number of projects to streamline various operational procedures that aim to enhance efficiency and reduce costs. While whether the aforementioned aims can be achieved or not is very much related to the breath and depth of analysis conducted on the relevant procedures and root issues.  After careful review, I have made suggestions to improve the work flow, and this provided opportunities to sharpen my analytical ability. Meanwhile, through working closely with colleagues from different backgrounds, my communication and interpersonal skills are enhanced. In addition, I have been offered opportunities to work in different functional units under the job rotation arrangement, including the Planning and Administration Division, Loans Division and Trade Services Centre, to broaden my horizons.

Life in BOCHK is bright and amazing. Apart from my daily work, I have joined different activities relating to social responsibility and corporate culture, such as the charitable and volunteer services organised by the Bank to help the needy in society. Besides, I was one of the organising committee members of the departmental annual dinner, in which our carefully planned rundown offered great fun to nearly 1,000 colleagues.

With a clear career development path, I will continue to enhance my professionalism and management skills with the Bank's guidance, and work hard to become a promising managerial executive in the banking industry.
