Performing the most advanced solutions is a recognition of Lithuania’s talents
“In our first decade in Lithuania, we have reached a maturity that is defined by the growth of competent people and the advanced solutions they develop. 2012–2013 was a kind of test year for Lithuania, and we shattered all the myths about our country and its talents. Starting with the simplest banking operations, we surpassed 300 employees after the first year, as more business units of Danske Bank had positive experiences with growing teams in Lithuania. In 2014, we established the IT Competence Centre, responsible for maintenance and development of the Bank’s infrastructure and technological solutions," Ramūnas Bičiulaitis, General Manager of Danske Bank Lithuania, says.
Today we count around 130 different professions in Danske Bank Lithuania executed by our talents, and the functions performed here cover all areas of the Danske Bank Group: from day-to-day banking operations to relationship management with large corporate and institutional customers, anti-money laundering, the Group’s finance and risk management, global legal services and technology development, and more.
