SBT to recruit 2,500 for clerical posts

State Bank of Travancore (SBT) has invited applications for 2,500 vacancies in the clerical cadre at its branches all over the country.

This is the largest ever recruiting drive by this State Bank of India-associate, an official spokesman said.

He reminisced the heavy recruitment drive during the mid-seventies when thousands joined the bank.

Their retirements are expected to happen over the next couple of years. “Bunching up” of these retirements is what has principally triggered the need for an encore now. Also, a number of existing employees in the clerical cadre are due for promotion as officers. This would also open up fresh vacancies.

The bank is also on an aggressive branch expansion.

During the last three months alone, 100 new branches have been opened. An equivalent number of units are expected to be opened very soon.

These offices would need at least two clerical cadre employees and an officer to man them, the spokesman said.

Candidates can apply for the cadre vacancies in one State only and will have to appear for a written test from a centre of that particular state.

Age and educational qualification needed as on August 1 are: 18-28 of years and 12th standard (10+2)-pass or equivalent with a minimum of 60 per cent aggregate, or a degree (graduation) from a recognised university.

Reservation and age relaxation are applicable to scheduled castes/scheduled tribes/other backward classes/persons with disabilities /ex-service persons as per guidelines.

A written test will be conducted on October 7 and October 14. Candidates may visit or under the ‘recruitment link’ for online registration. Details are also available on
