Equity is the largest bank in Kenya in terms of asset base. The bank employs over 3,000 Kenyans and offer jobs to fresh graduates and experienced professionals more often. There is one secret of getting a job at equity bank especially if you are a fresh graduate.
The first thing you should know is that to get a job at equity bank is easier than other banks because employment procedure is not complicated.
For fresh graduates if you want to apply for employment I advise you to do hand delivery to Equity offices upper hill. If you apply through their recruitment email you are likely to miss out on regular internal advertisement. What equity does when they have an urgent position they want to fill is go through their database and pick applications from there, then call you for interview.
You should avoid applying for a job through their email if you are making blind application. This is because many people find it easier to apply through email, thus making the number of applications too many for the HR department to go through-they normally ignore those applications.
Another secret you should have is that the bank recruits monthly and the best time to apply for employment is either when the year is starting or when the month is almost ending. The best dates for application is 20th-20th of every month.
Finally, the salary for cashiers, tellers, loan officers and fresh graduates is Ksh 30,000-Ksh50, 000.When asked in the interview how much you expect quote this figure.
