Operations Leadership Program

Be a part of Fifth Third Bank's landmark early talent program that allows recent college graduates to participate in hands-on leadership development supporting the Cincinnati market. This is a paid professional development opportunity where you'll learn Fifth Third Bank's business practices, operations, and procedures.

You will be responsible and accountable for risk, encouraged to openly exchange ideas and opinions, elevate concerns, and follow policies and procedures to safeguard the company. Doing the right thing for customers and colleagues is key; you'll ensure their actions and behaviors drive a positive customer experience, achieving real results by consistently identifying, assessing, managing, monitoring, and reporting risks of all types.

The Operations Leadership Program (OLP) is designed to help participants develop skills to use in leadership roles across departments and divisions. Moving through four departmental rotations over the two-year program, participants will gain resources that can help in a career path, leading to roles such as Operations Supervisor, Process Improvement Analyst, Project Manager, or Quality Control Analyst.

Strengthen your business acumen through exposure to Fifth Third Bank's senior leaders, performance coaching and feedback, mentoring relationships, leadership and professional development opportunities, and develop a professional network that includes some of the best talent in the industry.

What You'll Do

The Operations Leadership Program participants engage in a variety of operational settings, from customer-facing to high production and detail, to project management and process improvement. As a participant in the program, you'll develop an ability to thrive in leadership roles in a customer-centric environment, learning adaptability and flexibility while delivering leading-edge business solutions.

Your days will be filled with fast-paced on-the-job training and development as a vital part of the team. In meetings, you won't be expected to be seen and not heard; your ideas will be vital to the company's strategies going forward. You'll meet with senior leaders, soaking in their experience and insights, while developing your own skills based on their guidance. This isn't a role where you'll be making copies and fetching coffee for employees. You'll be a valued part of the team, gaining valuable experience and getting first-hand insights on how to run a major banking institution.
