What are we looking for in a Citibank employee?
We value leadership, determination, initiative and character as well as relevant academic and business qualifications.
We have a range of programs focused on developing our leaders at all levels across Citi globally. For example, in our Institutional Clients Group, the Diversity Leadership Program is a six-month program for high-potential women and minority vice presidents who have access to workshops and individualized coaching and sponsors to help build their confidence, executive presence and strategic skills.
There are also three High Potential Accelerator programs across our Global Consumer Banking business focused on developing leaders who have the potential to take on more complex leadership positions and critical roles in the future. Starting in 2011, the three programs target emerging leaders to executive-level leaders, each with a different focus, ranging from fostering greater cross-business/functional mobility to building innovation and customer-centricity skills, to providing individual executive assessment and coaching.
In our global Risk group, we have a 12-month program designed to strengthen the pipeline of women for leadership roles. Under the guidance of a sponsoring member of the Risk Management Executive Committee, Women in Risk participants identify career goals, implement a customized career developing plan and expand visibility through networking opportunities. Since inception, more than half of the participants have taken on new or expanded roles within the firm.
Our Citi Women Leadership Development Program is a 3-day event created to drive engagement and increase retention of women in director-level positions globally across Citi. It aims to catalyze their leadership development through focused sessions on their personal leadership brand, executive presence and getting clarity on their own skill differentiators. Upon program completion, participants engage as part of an alumni community with ongoing experiences and development opportunities.
Citi's AVP Edge Program is to groom and develop a pipeline of female AVPs by developing a personal skill base - personal branding, networking, work life integration, communicating with impact in a 2 day classroom program followed by 6 months of post program engagements.
Citi’s Management Associate program includes intensive development and business rotations to enable people to take on future leadership roles. Basic requirements include being degree qualified with exceptional academic record, excellent communication, analytical and planning skills, and a "can do attitude". The program has an annual intake with numbers dependent upon business requirements, and for Citibank, applicants need to have 2 to 3 years of corporate experience.
