The third season of the FirstBank Management Associate Program (FMAP) has been announced by First Bank of Nigeria Limited (FBN). The application is open to the general public until March 24, 2023.
The program is intended to develop the next generation of leaders to drive the bank’s vision of becoming Africa’s First Choice Bank.
The First Bank Management Associate Program (FMAP) is a 24-month fast-track, comprehensive program designed for young, dynamic, and highly motivated individuals who want to make a difference in the financial services industry.
According to the bank, FMAP provides participants with a wealth of experience that includes both classroom and real-world work, providing an insightful and balanced insight into the world of work.
The program is targeted at high-potential young professionals who possess acute thinking skills, financial and methodical skills, and a distinctive ability to communicate effectively and synthesize ideas, information, and data to aid decision-making.
Speaking on the FMAP Season III, FBN Group Head, Human Capital Management and Development, Olumuyiwa Olulaja, said, “Since its inauguration in half a decade, we are delighted with the giant strides and impact the initiative has had in promoting the career development of emerging talents in the financial services industry as they are instilled with the tenets and ethics of the banking industry in line with global best practice.
“The FMAP initiative is one of many ways we reinvest in our human capital as we develop the next generation of leaders by exposing them to various opportunities critical to their future success.
“Since its launch in 2018, FirstBank has successfully trained and onboarded up to fifty talented individuals in two editions (2020 and 2022), who have all been deployed into strategic roles in the bank and are making a difference in the organization, while we continue to support their leadership growth and development.”
