Banks boost mortgage teams, recruit Chinese speakers

Australian banks are looking to bolster their credit assessment teams and are increasingly demanding bilingual candidates.

The latest Hays Quarterly Banking Report noted that recruiters are seeing a strong demand for bilingual candidates with Mandarin language skills in Sydney.

“There has been an increase in the number of entry-level roles at banks that require these skills,” the report said.

“These officers ensure the loans are processed and approved. Exposure to lending and local networks is becoming increasingly necessary for these roles,” the report said.
