Young Bankers Programme


“A combination of useful and interesting. The Young Bankers Programme took us out of our routine and taught us things that we can apply in our everyday lives. From day one, we were provided support to occupational and team adaptation. The programme has already become a tradition at our bank. Each new generation quickly blends into the ProTeam and continues with the same level of energy that they had on the first day. I am glad that I am a part of that team every day.”

The Young Bankers Programme is the entry point for employment with ProCredit Bank. It is a six-month intensive introductory course into the theory and practice of banking and finance. The programme involves theoretical classroom training in our HO building in Belgrade. Practical training is organised in ProCredit Bank’s branches and service points, which requires that participants travel to other locations. The theoretical and practical training is alternated through the programme. During the programme, participants have the opportunity to work with our internal teachers and mentors, including the bank’s management team.

“During the six months I spent in the Young Bankers Programme, I gained all kinds of experience and knowledge and obtained a full picture of the bank and the way it works. I have also seen how much our bank invests in its employees and how great the learning and advancement possibilities are. Apart from the professional progress I made, I also made great friendships with very good people. Also, I got a chance to work in Subotica, a city in northern Serbia, and experience its authentic architecture, culture, mentality and lifestyle.”

The programme covers: 

  • Core principles of banking, finance and economics

  • Key concepts in economic development, environmental management and globalisation

  • An introduction to customer care and banking services

  • Financial maths and accounting

  • Specific tasks and projects which develop professional and personal qualities, both as individuals and as team members

ProCredit business philosophy and ProCredit history, which allows candidates to learn about the bank’s corporate culture and ethical principles, as reflected in the ProCredit Banks’ Code of Conduct and applied in our day-to-day operations

In addition, the course also focuses on developing communication skills, analytical thinking and relevant interpersonal skills, all of which require continuous self-improvement.

“The programme certainly makes ProCredit Bank stand out from all of the other banks in the country. It provided us with a chance to work and advance based on our knowledge and effort. The perfectly designed system allowed me to get to know how the bank works and how team spirit and effort provide the best results. The six-month training programme provides a solid foundation upon which you can easily build the rest of your career. The advantage of working in a new place is that you meet new colleagues and get to know processes that are somewhat different from branch to branch. I think it is extremely useful to every Young Banker to be at least familiar with the work of a Banking Service Adviser, because it is the fastest way to learn about the responsibility of working with money and people, which are skills that are very important for further progress.”

The training programme is organised interactively through discussions and workshops and participants are able to present and defend their ideas through different tasks, projects and presentations. The participant’s progress is monitored and followed in order to see how well they are able to cope with the various subjects dealt with during the programme through frequent tests and discussions as well as written work. Those who are active, can work successfully in a team, are open to the opinions of others but at the same time have their own views are the types of participants that we believe are most suitable for the programme.

This is a unique opportunity for the participants and for ProCredit to gauge whether candidates attitudes and personal qualities fit with the special “ProCredit way of working”.



"The Young Bankers Programme was a pleasant surprise for me. I encountered dynamic and open communication, a great combination of theory and practice as well as individual and team work. It has offered me a unique opportunity to get to know all departments and processes, to receive high-quality training and therefore to prepare well for the job I am doing right now. I consider my current position as a Banking Services Adviser, which covers all of the basic activities of banking, as a necessary foundation for further advancement. I also got the chance to work in the capital city, which is a special challenge for me, since I come from another region of Serbia."

Full attendance during the programme is mandatory, as is a high level of participation and involvement from each participant.

The candidates selected to participate in the Young Bankers Programme receive a stipend throughout the six-month period. In the case of individuals with prior work experience, the amount of the stipend can be adjusted to reflect that experience. Accommodation is organised and paid for by ProCredit Bank.

Participants who successfully complete the six-month training programme may be offered an employment contract with the bank. However, neither the bank nor the programme participants are under any legal obligation to enter into an employment contract. If an individual’s performance is deemed to be unsatisfactory at any point during the six-month period, he or she will be notified accordingly by the bank, and two weeks after such notice is given, the bank may terminate the individual’s participation in the Young Bankers Programme and consequently payment of the stipend will also be discontinued. 

The quality of our recruitment programme and consistent training methods help us to ensure that our outstanding customer service is maintained.

We expect initiative, dedication, commitment and flexibility from all participants of the Young Bankers Programme. These are individuals who are prepared to work away from their home town – not only during their training, but also if they eventually become employees of ProCredit Bank.

“The Young Bankers Programme is extremely well conceived and designed, and thanks to the comprehensive training, it has given me an exceptional opportunity to master the basics of the banking business in a professional environment. I have had the chance to professionally improve myself through different positions throughout Serbia, which has given me new knowledge and experiences. The position of Front Officer, that I used to hold, required a wide range of knowledge on various parts of the economy. The gradual and thorough training I received enabled me to complete my tasks in a better and more efficient way.”
