I came to the Bank through his collaboration with higher education institutions. I started my career as Assistant Director of the Department.
At the beginning of my career I handled small IT-initiatives but later started working with large-scale projects on the level of the Group.
I came to the Bank after graduating from the university, without any experience. And this year is already the eleventh in my career.
My first thought when I saw the post of my colleague on Facebook informing that Raiffeisen was recruiting people for the team which would implement innovations in the bank was: “Who are these digital ambassadors? It won’t hurt, if I ask, especially since I know my way around technologies.” When I wrote this message, I had already worked in Raiffeisen’s team for 2 years. I made the cut for the position of digital ambassador but didn’t stop my professional development, so now I hold the position of an analyst and work in head office. The change of position was a real challenge for me but the bank’s reliability, its independency, European values and desire to change encouraged me to make this important decision.
At the beginning of my career in the Bank, I was lucky to become a part of, perhaps, the most interesting for me team – digital ambassadors and premium banking. Starting from the first days I felt the support of my colleagues, great networking, where the proactivity is encouraged. I understood that the bank as employer invests in the development of specialists, provides an opportunity to do things that make your eyes shine.
Are you new to the Bank?
Keep in mind!
The silliest question is the question that was never asked. You should apply to your colleagues, ask questions, clarify things, since things, which are obvious for people that work here for a long time, may be out of the ordinary for you.
You don’t like something? Change it! Become proactive but do not stop after the conversations with colleagues. Be the facilitator of changes, join transformation projects and initiatives.
The most important is to try and not to be afraid to make mistakes, since he who makes no mistakes makes nothing.
