Baiduri Bank Group Welcomes Their First Management Associates
01 December 2019

Bandar Seri Begawan, 01 December 2019 - Baiduri Bank Group has signed up two young Bruneians into its Management Associate Programme. The signing ceremony was held at Baiduri Bank headquarters in Kiarong recently.

After undergoing a rigorous assessment process, Pg Hj Abdul Aziz Bin Pg Hj Aji and Colin Tan Chuan Chin were selected as the first batch of associates from over 100 candidates who applied.

Representing the Group at the signing ceremony were Mr Ti Eng Hui, the CEO of Baiduri Bank as well as Ms Veronica Chong, Head of Group Human Resources and Administration. Family members of both candidates were also present to witness the signing.

In order to successfully be accepted into the programme, both Colin and Pg Hj Abdul Aziz underwent an assessment process that included various psychometric tests, group assessments and presentations and a final panel interview with members of the Management Team.

Under the Management Associate Programme, both Pg Hj Abdul Aziz and Colin will be put through a 12-month development programme to build a solid foundation for a banking career. They will both be rotated through various departments within the Group, be given the opportunity to hold responsibilities, manage projects and will learn through in-depth personal and group coaching by highly experienced senior managers, allowing them to tap into their wealth of experience and knowledge.

Recounting the assessment process, Pg Hj Abdul Aziz felt that the interview was his ‘make-or-break’ moment and said: “I knew from the moment I sat down for the interview that it would either secure my place in the programme or otherwise. The questions they asked were very scenario-based and required on the spot use of critical thinking.”

For Colin, a stint with the Group’s investment and security trading arm, Baiduri Capital is an opportunity he looks forward to the most, saying, “While I’m looking forward to getting to learn the ropes about the banking industry as a whole, I’ve always been interested in the investment side of the financial industry, but never had the chance to pursue it.”

Meanwhile, Mr Ti spoke about the evolving challenges that the banking industry is facing, and how the Management Associate Programme is part of the Group’s plan to continue investing in its Human Capital to face these new challenges as they come. He said: "Baiduri Bank Group strongly believes in investing in human capital, not just for creating a more dynamic workforce that is future ready, but also to build potential leaders for the future."

"Our Management Associate Programme is part of this overall plan and is also in line with one of the main goals of Wawasan 2035 of making Brunei Darussalam a nation which will be widely recognized for the accomplishment of its educated and highly skilled people.”

“It also aligns with the AMBD Financial Sector Blueprint 2016-2025 of developing human capital, addressing skill-gaps and educating locals toward the financial sector, which is critical to Brunei’s economic diversification."
