Innovation is one of the cornerstones of the National Commercial Bank Jamaica Limited (NCBJ). As a group, we strive to continue to be pioneers in the financial services industry in the Caribbean. The establishment of our Innovation Unit in 2013 is reflective of that commitment.
In 2016, we successfully hosted our inaugural “Innovation Internship Programme”. Fifteen university students were selected from a pool of over 1000 applicants and ultimately generated more than 500 ideas. These concepts were evaluated for business value and viability and the best selected, which are currently being developed for implementation.
We are proud to again invite tertiary university students to participate in the 2017 “Innovation Internship Programme”. It is an excellent opportunity for action-oriented, motivated, bright young minds to share ideas for new, transformational products and services, while gaining vital business skills.
