Both the Liechtensteinische Landesbank and Bank Linth traditionally train a number of their junior employees themselves and live up to their responsibility as one of the largest providers of training in Liechtenstein. In 2015, 42 apprentices (2014: 47) at the LLB Group benefited from high-quality dual training, which combines theory and practice. We believe that the provision of a broad education is a key task, especially as through the Federal Vocational Baccalaureate (FVB) it allows young adults to keep their options open to go to a university of applied sciences or a traditional university.
This was also true for four new employees who joined the LLB Group after secondary school or the final school leaving examinations. They will complete their training with the “Bank Entry for Secondary School Graduates” certificate from the Swiss Bankers Association. These talented young people acquire their basic knowledge at the Center for Young Professionals in Banking (CYP) in Zurich, the competence and training center for Swiss banks. Instead of this training route, we will in future be expanding the tertiary-level induction programme.
In 2014, the LLB intensified its focus on university graduates and its contact with universities of applied sciences and universities. Two talented young people get to know our company in-depth from the inside as part of an 18-month on-the-job training programme covering three areas of work. Our trainees are in contact with top management, are involved in day-to-day business from their very first day of work and profit from the comprehensive spectrum of a universal bank. Trainees whose performance and commitment in all three areas of work are satisfactory are recommended for a permanent position. From 2016, we plan to admit at least three university graduates to our trainee programme. The LLB Group is also strengthening its presence at the universities of St. Gallen, Innsbruck and Liechtenstein and at the University of Applied Sciences in Dornbirn.
An above-average master’s degree is a requirement for job applicants. Applicants are also expected to have done internships in the financial services sector and have a very good command of German and English. We are interested in applicants with strong personalities who are able to develop themselves and others.
