Financial technology, data management and cyber security are the most sought-after skills of banking professionals
The banking sector in Spain faces constant changes and challenges. To prepare for the future and adapt to diverse needs, financial institutions are redefining the professional profiles that will dominate tomorrow’s banking. In line with technological evolution and accelerated digitization, banking profiles will be characterized by a combination of technical skills, specialized knowledge and interpersonal skills, as financial institutions recognize the need to integrate new disciplines and skills into their teams. An ever-changing market.
Artificial intelligence, data analytics, cyber security and risk management These are some of the fields that will gain more relevance in the configuration of future profiles. These areas will be critical in improving operational efficiency, delivering a unique customer experience and changing consumer expectations.
In addition, management and leadership skills are expected to play an important role in banking in Spain in the coming years. The ability to make informed and strategic decisions, lead diverse teams and foster collaboration and innovation will be highly valued attributes in profiles who wish to dedicate themselves to this field in the future.
Recognizing this evolution and the existing problem, the country’s banking institutions are investing in the lack of ready-made profiles that are in demand today.
