As an international institution undergoing rapid growth and possessing a large overseas portfolio, CIC recruits experienced professionals with international investment management experience and a good knowledge of Chinese culture and perspectives.
CIC operates a fair, rigorous, and transparent global recruitment process. All candidates must apply through its online recruitment system. After initial screening, candidates are invited to take an online test. Those who pass the online test are shortlisted for interviews. To enhance the rigor and fairness of the selection process, CIC applies a multidimensional assessment methodology and asks external human resource experts to participate in the interviews. Candidates applying for positions of managing director or above are interviewed by relevant senior executives.
CIC has a talent database to keep potential candidates in reserve for mid-level and senior executive positions. This allows CIC to respond quickly to demands for more targeted and professional recruitment. CIC also uses external human resource agents to search for the talent it needs.
As of June 2019, CIC’s overall staff strength was 660, including the global investment staff of 205. Among the global investment staff, more than 81% had overseas education or working experiences.
