In October 2018, seeing the problems young university graduates were facing, and with the aim of bridging the gap between tertiary education and the job market, in support of Greece’s economy and society, Piraeus Bank created the Project Future corporate responsibility program, in partnership with ReGeneration, the largest training and paid-employment programme for young university graduates in Greece. Young graduates up to 29 years of age, with no experience or up to three years’ experience, who have participated in extracurricular activities can now pursue the job they deserve, in Greece, by participating in the Project Future initiative.
Those who successfully complete the assessment stage of Project Future begin their training in key sectors of the market, including Digital Marketing, Data Science, Supply Chain Management, Java, .NET, Project Management, Business Intelligence, Front-end Development, Android Mobile Apps Development, Sales and Customer Experience, all of which have a strong presence in the current job market.
When their training is complete, participants’ CVs are posted on the ReGeneration platform, where they remain available for a year to over 600 collaborating companies, with the aim of participants’ being absorbed into jobs with a minimum six-month contract and minimum gross salary of €750. So far, Project Future has completed 4 cycles, training a total of 691 people, 363 of whom have already embarked on the first stage in their careers, and the hiring process is still ongoing.
