Recruitment and Selection Policy   

The Bank’s recruitment and selection policy is one which provides equal opportunity to all applicants. We seek to employ individuals of the highest calibre for the continued success of the Group.  The Group seeks to develop the optimum workforce profile required to realize its mission and strategic intent.

Appointment is based on merit, and is assessed in relation to the relevant selection criteria and position description.  Applications must meet all essential criteria detailed in the position description to be eligible for appointment. 

Job applications are matched against, the job specifications in terms of competencies, qualifications and experience. The most suitable candidates are short-listed and are invited to a first interview, after which a second short-list is created. At second interview stage, the candidate will be asked to provide two character references who would be contacted prior to the candidate choice.  Prior to making the final assessment, candidates need to complete FIMBank’s neuroscience-based behaviour test and the HR team will conduct background checks. A final assessment is based on all of the above.

HR will issue the job offer letter to the successful candidate, which includes the job title, type of contract, salary, benefits, signed declarations and the date of joining.

Once the candidate accepts the job offer s/he needs to keep one copy and return the other signed job offer to FIMBank under Private and Confidential cover. The candidate needs to include the date of commencement of employment.  On the candidate’s first day, HR will provide the contract of employment which the candidate needs to sign by the first week of engagement.  Prior to employment the Bank requests the following: 

  • a clean police conduct certificate;
  • an official job history record sheet issued by an appropriate national institution; and
  • a medical certificate certifying your fitness to work. 

New recruits are subject to a probation period. For further information please review our Recruitment & Selection privacy policy.
