Srinagar: J&K Bank has offered contractual appointments to 378 remaining leftover shortlisted candidates in the cadre of Banking Associates. This is in continuation to the bank’s commitment of providing employment opportunities to the youth of State immediately as and when vacancies are created.
The Bank had earlier in the month of March issued its Relationship Executive (RE) selection list of 350 candidates along with 1250 contractual appointment offers to left over shortlisted candidates against available vacancies in Banking Associate cadre. Among the offered 1250 Banking Associate positions, only 872 candidates joined and remained with the Bank hence leaving 378 vacant positions in the cadre.
The Board of the Bank had earlier decided not to offer these vacancies to the remaining in order of merit left over shortlisted candidates in the concluded selection process. However Chief Minister’s desire in response to the persistent requests to her from these candidates to explore avenues for their deserving induction keeping in view the unemployment scenario and their long wait for their selection owing to delay in the process and the manpower shortage derailing the exigent projects of National importance like Aadhaar facilitation, GST and Digitization coupled with highly time consuming available alternative of fresh selection process led the Board to review its decision and allowed the Bank to fill the vacancies from the leftover shortlisted candidates in order of merit and other necessary criteria followed in the process.
Chairman and CEO, Parvez Ahmed while deliberating on the development expressed his satisfaction on the timely Board approval for filling these vacancies. He further informed that though this timely intake of around 378 qualified young men will augment the human capital of the bank to handle the short term exigent challenges, yet the under preparation Business Plan of three to five years will necessitate recruitments in much more numbers.
“We are quite hopeful of living right up to the expectations of educated State youth. We will make regular and most sought after employment offers to them in reasonable numbers and will continue to remain second largest employer of the State after Government of Jammu and Kashmir with improved intake after every recruitment period”, he said and further reiterated that empowerment by employment for educated youth is embedded in the mission of the bank.
