The National Bank for Financing Infrastructure and Development (NaBFID) is looking to recruit external human resource consultants as it prepares to hire officials in mid- and junior-level positions, according to a document.
With senior positions almost filled up, the state-run institution wants the new HR consultants to prepare job specifications and descriptions for other positions, produce advertisements, shortlist applicants, and do background checks for new roles, according to the document.
The bank wishes to impanel human resource recruitment consultants for recruiting manpower in junior and middle management positions on a regular or contract basis in NaBFID,” the document, a public call for applications, issued on Thursday showed.
These consultants will have to identify suitable candidates based on experience, skill sets, and academic qualifications for certain critical positions specified by the bank and coordinate with them for their participation. They will also have to provide the complete list of applicants clearly indicating their eligibility or otherwise to the bank keeping a window for objections if any. Based on the objections received within the stipulated period, the consultant will have to take appropriate corrective action, if required and prepare the final list of eligible candidates.
According to the document, the selected HR consultants will have to handle background checks, caste verification, credit checks, and the credit history of candidates. “The bidder should ensure that the candidates identified should not have any police record/criminal record against them. The antecedent and caste report should be in prescribed format duly signed by the competent authority,” it said. After appointing veteran banker K.V. Kamath as the chairman of NaBFID in 2021, the government appointed last year former Union Bank of India chief executive Rajkiran Rai G as the managing director of the institution. Moreover, the financial services institutions bureau also recommended the names of Monika Kalia, B.S.Venkatesha, and Samuel Jebaraj as deputy managing directors of NaBFID.The Reserve Bank of India said on 9 March last year that NaBFID has been set up as a development finance institution (DFI) to support the development of long-term infrastructure financing and the regulator would supervise it as an All India Financial Institution (AIFI). It is the fifth AIFI after Exim Bank, Nabard, National Housing Bank and Sidbi.
