We are pleased to announce the opening of applications for our Young Professionals Programme (YPP) 2022/2023.

We are looking for young, qualified, enthusiastic, goal-oriented professionals eager to contribute to the social and economic growth of the Caribbean to join our YPP.

Our Young Professionals Programme serves as an excellent developmental opportunity for those interested in working in the International Financial Institution space. During the intensive two-year programme, each successful applicant will be paired with a knowledgeable Caribanker, who will support their integration into the organisation and provide guidance as they hone their expertise.

However, we offer more than just practical learning, our spacious campus boosts of several onsite amenities such as a professionally staffed gym and restaurant, as well as outdoor recreational spaces including a large playing field and tennis court.

If you are a young person interested in working in a multicultural environment, with a commitment to bettering the lives of Caribbean people through innovative and dynamic solutions, this is the opportunity for you.

  • leadership potential.
