young university graduates and employees with

some previous experience.

Work/study contracts were offered to 860 young

people in 2006 (570 in vocational training programmes

and 290 in apprenticeships), representing

an overall increase of 9% on 2005. At

employees involved in work/study programmes

within BNP Paribas. This represents an

increase of 18% on the 2005 figure and makes

BNP Paribas one of the foremost recruiters of

trainees in France.

In-branch recruitment campaigns

Following the success of similar operations in

2005, the Group organised two new in-branch

recruitment campaigns in Paris and the Paris

region. The first of these, in April 2006, attracted

3,600 candidates, leading to 1,400 interviews

in May and June, and approximately 100 new

hires. The process was speeded up during the

second campaign, held in October, and the

direct involvement of HR managers meant that

the most promising applications could be validated
