IBPS SO

Introduction

IBPS SO stands for IBPS Specialist Officer. Like any office, a bank requires people for keeping it’s “nuts and bolts” intact. While the Probationary Officers and Clerks run the day-to-day operations and business in a bank. There are several specialist officers in a bank. IT Officer (Scale-I) – It would be the responsibility of IT officers to oversee the technological perspectives of banking affairs, both software, and hardware. Nearly all banks contracting in the “IBPS recruitment” have shifted to core-banking for operations, and they use software like FLEX CUBE, Finacle, BanCS, SAP, etc. An IT officer will undergo training in all these domains HR/Personnel Officer (Scale-I)- HR officers in a Bank usually handle the training and induction of new employees, circulating appraisal forms, forming leave schedules, creation of salary accounts, etc. Senior HR managers conduct interviews, take classes, deal with labor laws, promotion and other serious matters Rajbhasha Adhikari (Scale-I)- The individual applying for the post of Rajbhasha Adhikari should be able to create error-free Hindi documents, and translate smoothly between Hindi, English and other regional* languages. Marketing Officer (Scale-I)- Duty of an officer in this category is to improve the profits and market presence of the bank through various campaigns and promotions. Law Officer (Scale-I)- They are responsible for making it sure that the bank functions in compliance with the law of the land. Agriculture Officer (Scale-I)- The primary responsibility of an Agriculture officer is to promote banking services among farmers and cultivators. They have to evaluate the property and assets of potential customers and suggest a reliable approach for increasing the crop yield and performance, in such way that it would profit the banks. The role of a Specialist Officer (SO) sprawls in the background activities, especially in the following areas.
