Cindy joined the bank  following her degree in Law and Human Resources in France, and her role has evolved significantly.
Just four years into her role, Cindy was offered an exciting work placement in Tokyo within Mizuho Bank’s Global Career Division and was involved in a number of projects such as improving the overall communication between Head Office and the overseas branches as well as implementing a global vacancy board.
As well as new work challenges and improving her Japanese, Cindy relished the opportunity to live in a new country and experience a different culture. “I enjoyed living outside of the Western World for the first time. Tokyo is such a buzzy city and the Shinkansen (bullet train) and skiing are amazing!”
Mizuho Bank actively offers international opportunities to its employees. These stints provide life enhancing experiences that enrich employees’ careers, enhance networking and foster an important international working culture within the Bank.
"Following my post in Japan, I’m now involved in every aspect of HR from recruitment to employment relations and even delivering training courses to overseas branches,” says Cindy.
“Since joining the bank, I’ve increasingly seen more international opportunities become available. There are several programmes enabling employees to undertake placements from one week to two years, and the bank is also trying to grow its focus on supporting staff relocations.”
Upon her return, Cindy shared her experiences with colleagues in London and has since inspired further employees to work on global projects and undertake international work placements.
