    I made a career switch to Personal Banking after being in the civil service for a few years, because I wanted to do something different and dynamic. Rejection is not uncommon in this role but I am able to stay focused whenever I remember my core purpose — to help clients plan for their future in the best possible way. It helps a lot that UOB has a family-like and open culture where I can always approach someone for guidance and assistance.
    Patricia Tai, Personal Banker, Personal Financial Services

    I joined UOB Singapore as a Personal Banker after graduation, and I have benefited greatly from its structured training programme. I was also given the opportunity to progress from a Personal Banker to a management role — first as a Bancassurance Manager, then as Business Manager today. I find great satisfaction in this role, where I mentor and guide Personal Bankers in helping their clients achieve their financial goals.
    Jack Huang, Business Manager, Personal Financial Services

    Upon graduating from Applied Finance in 2014, I joined UOB Singapore as a Personal Banker. Work fulfillment in this role far exceeded my expectations because it allowed me to do what I value greatly — to get to know new people and provide them with sound financial advice. Top performers are also eligible for promotions to relationship management roles, and there are attractive overseas incentive trips and training programmes to help support continual growth.
    Teresa Chong, Relationship Manager, Wealth Banking

    The structured training programme and the mentoring I received from my manager were two important factors that helped me perform well as a Personal Banker, when I joined in 2014. There will always be challenging moments in a role like this, where rejections are common. The recognition and the opportunity for fast career progression will far outweigh the tough times though.
