Company Opens 700 Jobs for Unemployed Filipinos Amid Pandemic

BPI-Philam announces it has opened over 700 posts to aid Filipinos struggling to find a job amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The latest data from the Philippine Statistics Authority puts the country’s unemployment rate at an estimated 7.7% (3.76 million individuals) in June. As the economic impact of the health crisis persists, BPI-Philam offers Filipinos a stable livelihood and an opportunity for career development to help jobseekers and their families recover eventually.

Most available positions are for Bancassurance Sales Executives, who are tasked to guide clients in determining their insurance needs. The company is looking to recruit those who have a genuine concern for people and an entrepreneurial mindset, while a background in sales is an advantage. Accepted applicants will be stationed in BPI branches or assigned to work from home as appropriate, receive competitive benefits, and qualify for incentives and recognition programs.

“Finding the right career is not easy and even more so in the middle of a pandemic. BPI-Philam understands the current plight of jobseekers and would like to invite them to explore opportunities in the insurance industry. It’s the kind of career that allows them to touch the lives of customers while at the same time securing their own since the industry is built to remain stable amid disruptions,” said Surendra Menon, BPI-Philam Chief Executive Officer.

Exploring new professional opportunities

With its effect on the global economy and the uncertainties alongside it, the pandemic has made it difficult for some to explore and expand their horizons in terms of professional growth. As a company that protects individuals from the unpredictable, BPI-Philam encourages professionals to continue pushing forward and discovering new opportunities amid the current circumstances. This holds especially true for workers from industries like tourism and hospitality, which suffered the most when the pandemic hit.

With the resilience and stability of the insurance industry, there is always a great opportunity for long-term career growth. BPI-Philam has managed to quickly adapt to the changes by accelerating its digital transformation to become a more agile and efficient company. In fact, job seekers can easily apply to BPI-Philam’s different job boards without leaving home with the assistance of its recruitment chatbot Mandy. This proves its commitment to its customers and employees.

At present, BPI-Philam is expanding its workforce to meet the increased demand for life and health protection among clients. To thrive in the insurance industry, the bancassurance leader advises job seekers to develop a driven attitude and a results-focused mindset. Professionals who value perseverance and innovation would also fit well within its teams.

Insurance professionals generally enjoy competitive benefits including a steady paycheck, incentives package, recognition events, comprehensive medical and insurance benefits, and exciting training and employee engagement activities.

“The welfare of our workforce is a top priority at BPI-Philam. Alongside the professional experience that they gain, we ensure that they continue to enhance their skills and learn new ones, while still enjoying a work-life balance. We have developed a diverse and dynamic yet high-performance culture that enables them to deliver excellent outcomes in our shared mission of making insurance accessible and affordable for every Filipino. We are looking forward to further expanding our teams and to have the most driven professionals join the company,” said Menon.

In addition to the competitive benefits, favored jobseekers will also get to be a part of a dedicated team of professionals who will help ensure millions of Filipinos, enabling them to live healthier, longer, and better lives.
