TBI Bank and Telerik Academy announced a partnership that will support the professional certification and career start of IT talent in the country. The collaboration includes the practical training of junior IT specialists from the leading educational organisation, as well as career opportunities with TBI Bank.
Shorter distance between good professionals and good employers
As part of the partnership, in the coming months professionals who have passed the 6-month Telerik Academy Alpha Technology Development Program will be among the first to be considered for inclusion in the Bank’s IT infrastructure. The collaboration will shorten the distance between TBI Bank and qualified IT staff and will provide direct access to the finite sector.
"The Bank's strategic goal is to strengthen our position as a next generation digital lender. To achieve this, we need well-trained IT specialists who have both the theoretical knowledge and practical readiness to work on challenging projects in the fintech and banking fields. We value our cooperation with Telerik Academy as it prepares experts with a strong focus on technological skills and personal qualities," said Nikolay Spasov, Chief Operating Officer of TBI Bank.
"More and more companies from different industries and fields become tech-bound. As a result, the hunger for qualified IT experts on the labor market is growing. We are delighted to see in TBI Bank a partner who invests in the development of junior technological talent and provides the opportunity for professional realization in the dynamic fintech sector", said Alexandra Mechkova, Chief Executive Officer of Telerik Academy.
