For the seventh year in a row, the best students of higher economic educational institutions in Ukraine receive awards from Ukrsotsbank and the right to be employed in the system of our bank. The basic idea of the event remains the same all over years – to assist talented students in identification and development of their skills, to create a favorable environment for their professional banking development.

As a result, more than 100 participants of the Olympics over the years of its run have been working within the structure of Ukrsotsbank, including executive positions”.

In this regard, it is very important to support talented young people who will come tomorrow to work in the banking sector, as their knowledge, skills and professionalism form a solid foundation for further successful growth of Ukraine’s banking system”, said Svetlana Georbelidze, Head of the Visa Representative Office in Ukraine. “The All-Ukrainian Student Olympics for the prize of UniCredit Group, organized by Ukrsotsbank on a regular basis, is an important social initiative and example of system investments in the financial education of Ukrainians. This program will surely be an important step towards the professional formation of young specialists”.

NOTE

Ukrsotsbank is one of the largest universal banks of Ukraine, operating in the local market since 1990. The bank offers full range of services to individuals and corporate clients.

The renovated Ukrsotsbank emerged on 31 October 2016 as a result of strategic deal whereby 99.9% of Ukrsotsbank shares have been transferred from UniCredit Group to ABH Holdings S.A. (АВНН) in exchange for a minority 9.9% stake in ABHH. Thus, the bank has combined 26-year-old traditions of Ukrsotsbank’s client-centric attitude, European quality of service inherent to UniCredit, as well as international banking expertise of ABHH in a number of European countries including CIS. Thanks to the successful synthesis and synergy of the two assets of ABHH in Ukraine, Ukrsotsbank and Alfa-Bank, the banking market of Ukraine will see the rise of a new stronger financial institution. This, in turn, will spur up technological advance, increase efficiency, improve quality of service for the clients, reduce cost of banking services whereas their range will inevitably expand.

The extensive retail network of Ukrsotsbank consists of 237 branches, its headcount reaching nearly 5 thousand employees.
