隨著香港逐漸發放虛擬銀行牌照,銀行業開始競相爭奪人才,最近這段時間,香港銀行業出現了不同尋常的招聘熱潮。

彭博社4月29日報道,獵頭公司Robert Walters Plc的董事Carol Cheung表示,獲得虛擬銀行牌照的四家公司在香港有大約200人,到這些公司開始經營時,員工人數可能會增加超過一倍。香港金管局預計虛擬銀行將在9個月內開始提供零售和商業服務,且目前正在處理另外四個申請。

Cheung說:「香港受到嚴格監管的銀行業多久才會創造出一些全新的東西?這種招聘熱潮很罕見。」

雖然包括Robert Walters在內的公司正尋找從業務主管到運營人員在內的各類員工,但要想找到具有合適技能的人可能具有挑戰性。雖然香港被譽為一個金融中心,擁有一個有約10萬穩定僱員的銀行業,但香港仍然依賴傳統銀行,並且在金融技術領域落後於地區其他經濟體。

WeLab Holdings Ltd.創始人龍沛智表示:「香港銀行業已經存在金融科技人才缺口,因為不是每個銀行從業者都適合金融科技工作,一些在傳統銷售方面經驗豐富的銀行家可能不適合金融科技驅動的服務。」WeLab在4月10日被授予虛擬銀行牌照。

報道指出,WeLab計劃在未來12個月內將其香港員工人數增加一倍至200人;渣打集團表示,其虛擬銀行合資企業需要為目前100人的團隊再增加40人;眾安在線旗下的虛擬銀行在香港和中國內地擁有約100名員工,雖然其希望增加更多員工,但表示沒有一個明確的目標。

獵頭公司正在尋找系統開發人員和風險與合規管理人員等。他們表示,工資可能不會太高,因為虛擬銀行的運作方式將類似金融科技初創企業,但這些新業務可以通過提供股票期權來吸引員工。

一些公司正在香港以外尋找人才。雖然由渣打銀行控股的虛擬銀行SC Digital Solutions的董事Samir Subberwal表示,這家銀行的70%員工來自香港,但該公司已經從北美、歐洲、中國內地和澳洲的科技公司和數字銀行招聘到了員工,因為在香港的人才市場有些緊張。
