The Future of Banking: A Place to Grow
In March 2019, Page Executive organized a 2nd debate in Warsaw for Banking Shared Service Center Heads and HR leaders to discuss topics regarding this dynamically growing industry. The event was led by Mariusz Grendowicz, one of the most prominent bankers in Poland and hosted by Iwona Dudzińska, Citi Managing Director, at their premises. Agnieszka Kulikowska, Partner in Page Executive, facilitated the discussion.
Shared Services Sector
Shared Services Centers (SSCs) are a growing area for the Polish employment market, offering unique opportunities for career development. The sector currently employs 330,000 people, with some 25,000 international employees. In terms of career levels, the sector serves profiles ranging from recent graduates to experts in their fields. GSCs truly are melting pots of ideas, talent and possibilities for businesses and employees alike.
A Place to Grow
SSCs offer unique opportunities for employees to develop their technical business skills and their soft skills. Taking an overview of the Polish market today, talented candidates are highly likely to find a position that will help them work toward their career goals. Many companies have based regional and global functions in Poland, so employees (and potential candidates) can grow into managerial or expert positions in IT, Finance, Security Services, Insurance, HR, Engineering and Business Development.
Companies that support your professional growth
Piotr Tatar, Head of International Operations Centre, BNP Paribas, explains how his company supports talent growth. “As international companies, we enable our employees to work, learn and share best practices with experts from across the globe,” Piotr Tatar explains. “We support development centers, internal mobility, as well as various international opportunities.
“As a sector, we stay ahead of the game to support career development and in gaining new expertise. As the sector continues to grow, it is inevitable that the opportunities will continue to grow for talent as well. It is clear that the future of the SSC sector lies with the talent that will rise up to meet the challenge,” Piotr Tatar concludes.
Agnieszka currently leads the Financial Services, Shared Services and Human Resources practices in Poland. She has successfully conducted over 110 executive search assignments on Regional (CEE, EMEA), local Board and Director levels among a total of over 260 recruitment projects since joining PageGroup in 2007.
