Union Bank recently hosted ‘UB Accelerate’ a career guidance and job fair targeting school leavers and young job-seekers.  

The event held at the Nawarangahala of Royal College was a huge success and attracted over 1,000 youths from across the island. Through UB Accelerate, the bank aimed to create awareness on the career opportunities and potential that exists in the banking sector for young job seekers, with the aim to help them accelerate their entry in to a successful career. Aiding this cause, following the career guidance seminar, interviews were conducted on the same day which gave the attendees an opportunity to join the bank as Trainee Banking Assistants. 

Union Bank remains committed to mentor Sri Lankan youth into becoming skilful young professionals through these initiatives. From effective performance management systems and attractive rewards schemes to progressive career development and training opportunities, Union Bank provides its employees with the impetus to perform at their optimum and reap rewards.
