Michal Honzírek, Czech Republic
My name is Michal Honzírek, I am 26 years old and I work as a Relationship Manager within the Local Large Corporate department in Česká spořitelna. I have received my Master’s degree at the Czech Technical University in Prague and I am also working on my MBA at ESMA Barcelona.
I decided to apply to the Erste Group Graduate Programme because of the quality of the programme and the opportunities it provides to begin a career at one of the main players in the CEE banking market. I especially appreciate the focus on personal development and the comprehensive way of preparing graduates for their future challenges. However, the chance to build up a broad network of personal contacts and meet a lot of great people throughout the programme remains my favourite characteristic.
To sum up, the Group Graduate Programme represents, in my opinion, a valuable and prestigious entrance into the world of banking and, quite simply, is an excellent starting position for future development within Erste Group, regardless of the ever-changing market environment.
