Job Description:
Business Leadership Program Overview:
Does the future excite and intrigue you? Are you passionate about influencing change? Do you want the opportunity not just to adapt to trends, but create new ones? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Synchrony Financial's Business Leadership Program is for you. (Not familiar with Synchrony Financial? We're publicly traded (NYSE:SYF), a leader in consumer finance and have been around for 80+ years! Read more below).
The Business Leadership Program (BLP) is a two year, three-rotation accelerated leadership development program within one of 10 functional tracks (Credit, Data Analytics, Enterprise Operations, Finance, HR, Internal Audit, IT, Marketing, Risk Management, Sales & Relationship Management). The rotational assignments empower participants to build deep, functional expertise within a specific track while empowering and challenging you to develop broad based industry and business acumen. One of the ways this is done is through our sponsorship of two, month-long cross-functional, customer experiences designed to expose you to different areas of our business.
While on program, you will work alongside and learn from experienced professionals who will challenge you to develop your skills in an accelerated work environment. In addition, we believe all Synchrony Financial team members should understand the value of giving back. That's why BLP participants will have the option to complete a program sponsored, one-month community service project.
We believe in looking forward in a constantly changing industry, so our program is tailored to ensure that you're ready for what's around the corner. While no one can predict the future, together we can embrace the excitement of staying a step ahead. Together we can engage your career. Together we can think forward.
