Management Trainee

Charles Wong
Operation Manager,
Bank-wide Operation Department
Officer Trainee 2008, Management Trainee 2011

It's my fifth year with BOCHK after my graduation. I started my career as an Officer Trainee 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. After serving the Bank for three years, 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.

Officer Trainee

Neo Lau
Relationship Manager,
Corporate Banking, Financial Institutions and Product Management Officer Trainee 2006

Joining BOCHK has been a wonderful and rewarding life journey to me. I take great pleasure in growing along with the Bank, helping it make continuous achievements in the industry.

Having worked in the Corporate Banking Department for seven years, I have been responsible for offering financial services to a diverse range of corporate customers, from SMEs to listed enterprises. A good business relationship is built upon mutual trust. With this in mind, I maintain and continue to strengthen the Bank's business relationship with customers by providing tailored solutions to meet their unique needs in business development. Through the process, I have acquired the whole picture of the operational structure of enterprises, financial institutions as well as the practical knowledge regarding credit, capital market, bills, settlement, and the like. This helps enhance my professionalism and demonstrates my commitment and competency.

I have been most impressed by the Bank's people-oriented corporate culture. The congenial working environment is like a family. I have received great support and assistance from my colleagues. The mentorship programme has enabled me to take valuable advice from my experienced mentor, who coaches me for both my professional and personal growth. Although I have encountered a lot of challenges in the process, I have not ever been alone. Apart from this, the Bank always stresses the importance of a good work-life balance. By taking part in different recreational activities organised by the Bank, my colleagues and I have formed a closely knit group and care for one another.

Throughout these seven years, I have seen the Bank's strong commitment to undertake corporate social responsibility. The Bank encourages us to participate in all sorts of volunteer work by establishing BOCHK Dynamic Volunteer Team in 2006. With an aim to proactively spread the message of caring, it organises various community and volunteer activities, such as frequent visits to the elderly and the needy, charity walk and blood donation. In addition, the Bank gives full support to sports activities to help raise our spirit and morale, as well as foster a strong sense of belonging among us. It is truly incredible when you work with these great people who share the same belief in contributing to the society.

BOCHK is undoubtedly a bank which provides a bright career path with plenty of opportunities for young talents. I highly recommend fellow graduates to join us and embark on your very own amazing and satisfying journey with BOCHK.
