Do I need to have a specific degree in order to apply?
No, we consider all applications. Sales experience for retail banking salespeople is as important as a degree in finance. However, targeted roles often require specific degrees.
We believe that other qualities are just as important as formal qualifications: appropriate values, self-confidence, motivation, communication skills and respect for others.
Do you accept people who are looking to make a career change?
We review all of the applications that we receive. When a candidate without banking experience appears to bring added value to a position, we include the candidate in the recruitment process.
Do I need to speak French to work at BNP Paribas?
No. We are an international bank, and accordingly the working language is English in many countries in which we operate. However, the ability to speak a foreign language is an asset. The ability to speak the local language is essential for positions in retail banking.
What are the different phases of the recruitment process?
The process varies by country or occupations. Please visit the local websites.
What is the difference between BNP Paribas and other banks?
We believe that global performance depends on local performance. Because success is often initiated by people who really know the local markets, BNP Paribas has developed a decentralised business model. Activities are managed locally and managers are also hired locally. In other words, BNP Paribas is a “multinational” company rather than a “globalised” one. On a day to day basis, this means more scope and creativity for employees.
What is the corporate culture?
Day to day, we encourage:
- Diversity: at BNP Paribas, you can express your ideas
- Our employees: at BNP Paribas, you can pursue your goals
- Performance: at BNP Paribas, you can express your drive
- Risk management: at BNP Paribas, you can leverage your skills
If another company gives me a deadline for accepting their offer, what should I do?
We believe that candidates should have the opportunity to consider all offers. If you receive an offer from another company and you are waiting for our response, please contact us and let us know. We will do everything we can to expedite the process and allow you to make an informed decision.
