Bank of Maldives (BML) is to continue its Graduate Internship Program focused on graduates and students from local higher education institutes for the second year.

The main focus of the program is to allow students to gain on-the-job experience and a pathway to permanent employment within the bank and other financial institutions in Maldives.

At a special ceremony held at Champa Central Hotel, BML's Deputy CEO and In-charge Aishath Noordeen awarded certificates to 14 participants who completed the Graduate Internship Program in the first year, while appointment letters were handed over to 15 new participants joining the program this year.

Aishath Noordeen commented, “We are delighted to continue our internship program into its second year having successfully completed the first program. Under the guidance of mentors, participants were able to gain knowledge and practical experience across various functions of the bank and take an important step forward in fulfilling their career aspirations in the banking industry”.

The 12-month internship program is open to students and graduates of all participating colleges in ‘BML Prospect’, the bank’s partnership with higher education institutions. Interns will be rotated across a number of business units, departments and branches, to gain experience and opportunities to develop their skills. Each intern will be allocated a mentor to guide them through their time at the bank, and upon successfully completing the program, they will be eligible to apply for full-time positions at the bank.

Bank of Maldives has won ‘Asia’s Best Employer Brand Award’ for the second consecutive year. BML is recognised for its progressive human resource policies and practices.
