The Complete Banker™ Programme - Malaysia

Keen on learning about the banking industry? Our highly-sought-after ASEAN management trainee programme puts you in good stead to be a banking leader of tomorrow.

The Complete Banker™ (TCB) programme comprises two months of intensive foundation building, followed by 10 months of on-the-job learning across different business units. This broad exposure helps you build the skills set required of a top-class banker.

Three streams are available:

  • Consumer Banking
  • Investment Banking
  • Asset Management

Stage 1 - Foundation Building

You will undergo two months of intensive foundation-building in universal banking and leadership.

Simulating our fast-paced, high performance environment, the foundation building will:

  • Equip you with a sound knowledge of how financial markets work, banking products and services and our work processes.
  • Help you adapt to working in the ‘real’ world

During these two months, you will focus on acquiring product and market knowledge, solving problems, thinking critically and making decisions. The sessions will be reinforced by real-life case studies, group projects and field trips.

Stage 2 - Business Appreciation

The next 10 months involve job-rotation, where you will work in four different business units chosen to complement your career track. You will develop a deep understanding of our operations during this hands-on period and build a strong network across the company. You may even find yourself working in a different country.

You will be coached and mentored throughout this journey.

Stage 3 - Career Placement

After completing the job rotations, you will hold an executive position at a business unit.  Placements within the business will be based on your strengths, interests and business requirements. High performing trainees will also be given the opportunity to be seconded to another CIMB office for regional exposure. Past regional attachments have included China, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Cambodia and Sri Lanka.
