“My interest in the broad field of compliance became apparent while studying business law at the University of Kassel. This topic is becoming increasingly important, especially for banks. I am therefore all the more pleased that Hamburg Commercial Bank is already giving me such a great deal of responsibility at a relatively young age when it comes to issues such as money laundering and fraud prevention. During my 18 months as a trainee, I was already able to experience that employees are valued and supported as much as possible. During this entire one-and-a-half year period, I had a permanent mentor and changing sponsors for specific topics. They were available at any time and always had valuable advice for me. There is a good, open hands-on mentality here.”
