Deutsche Bank said in hiring freeze

Now Hiring Not

To hire, or not to hire..

Deutsche Bank, which has unveiled some large public recruitment plans in recent weeks, is said to be currently in the midst of a global hiring freeze.

eFinancialCareers reports that this is not unprecedented at this time of year, when most banks take stock of their recruitment throughout 2013 and plan their hiring intentions for the coming 12 months. However, Deutsche Bank has recently unveiled plans to hire hundreds of people in locations like Dublin and its expanding office in Birmingham.

A memo sent to recruiters at the end of October said that there is a 'global hiring pause with immediate effect' at Deutsche Bank, that 'there will be certain roles in GT (global technology) that may continue with external hiring” and that any legal recruitment would be exempt. It didn’t say when the pause would be lifted.

This weekend, the bank revealed that it was creating an additional 700 jobs in Dublin, and would be starting the recruitment next year. Meanwhile, Deutsche Bank also intends to bolster headcount by a further 1,000 people in its Birmingham office.
