State Bank of India to hire 7000 personnels this financial year
The State Bank of India (SBI) is going to hire 7,000 people this financial year to support its branch expansion plans and for the regular needs.
“We will hire about 2,000 probationary officers and the rest clerks. We are going to add 700 more branches this financial year to take the total to beyond 17,000 branches,” Rajnish Kumar, Managing Director of SBI, has said.
The need for human resources comes down as productivity increases with proliferation of technology products.
Addressing a press conference here on Monday, he said about 100 new branches had already been set up this year so far and the remaining would be started in the next few months. “We have multiple channels that our customers can reach out to us. In a vast country like India, you need to have a variety of channels,” he said.in
