#BILJOBDATING 2016 a big hit!

BIL’s third Jobdating event was held on Saturday 2 July. This year, the focus was on jobs in the fields of IT and digital technology. Almost 200 candidates registered to try and land a job.

Application software engineer, application support engineer, junior developer, community manager, content manager, etc. The jobs proposed at BIL Jobdating 2016 reflect the digital transformation that BIL is undergoing and the emphasis placed on innovation, one of the pillars of the BIL 2020 strategy.

For this Jobdating event, we focused on highly-skilled jobs and on hard-to-find talent. With almost 200 candidates from Luxembourg and the Greater Region registered for the event, we exceeded our objectives. We were impressed by the quality of the discussions with candidates,” explained Karin Scholtes, Global Head of Human Resources at BIL.

The first candidates arrived at 9am for their first interview. The most talented of these candidates had three interviews, with the possibility at the end of the day of being offered a job. In total, more than 350 interviews were held during the Jobdating day, with the involvement of almost 100 BIL staff members.

Although the challenge for candidates was to land a job, this Jobdating day was also an opportunity for them to gain a better understanding of BIL and its business lines. Experts from the bank presented the philosophy underlying BIL’s retail banking services, online services and innovation policy. Accompanied by bank staff, the candidates were able to visit a typical branch in order to go behind the scenes and even to familiarise themselves with innovative e-banking and video-recruiting solutions.

Nicolas Schmit, Minister of Labour, Luc Frieden, BIL’s Chairman of the Board of Directors, Hugues Delcourt, BIL’s CEO, Guy Pütz, Head of ADEM’s employer department and Jerry Lenert, CEDIES coordinator, were also present to meet and encourage the candidates.

Faced with the challenges of digital transformation, we are committed to recruiting talented young people to pursue our growth. During the third edition of BIL Jobdating, our experts met a large number of candidates with rich and varied profiles. They demonstrated their desire to learn and progress, and we are eager to welcome them among our teams”, commented Hugues Delcourt, BIL’s CEO.
