Such people can work for you. We are a bank which combines the experience and the best traditions of the Polish banking with a modern model of finance. Citi Handlowy was set up as a result of the merger of Bank Handlowy w Warszawie S.A. - the oldest operating commercial bank in Poland - and Citibank (Poland) S.A. in March 2001. This is how, in March 2001, one of the strongest local banking institution was created, which is an integral part of Citi - a leading financial services company, having approximately 200 million customer accounts and operating in more than 160 countries and jurisdictions. Citi provides consumers, corporations, governments and institutions with a broad range of financial products and services, including consumer banking and credit, corporate and investment banking, securities brokerage, transaction services, and wealth management.

Citi currently operates via two primary business segments: Citicorp, representing Citi's core growth franchises and Citi Holdings, which contains businesses and assets that are not core to Citi's future. Citicorp includes the Global Consumer Banking Business and the Institutional Clients Group and is focused on providing best-in-class products and services to customers and leveraging Citi's unparalleled global network, including many of the world's emerging economies.

Social Responsibility

The Bank is a financial institution with a high sense of social responsibility. We pursue our modern philanthropy mission through the Kronenberg Foundation at Citi Handlowy, established by the Bank, which supports a wide range of public good activities in such areas as financial education, promotion of entrepreneurship, protection of cultural heritage and local development. The Foundation gives top priority to financial education. In 2013, in partnership with public institutions, it carried out 9 programs, including "Moje Finanse", the largest financial education program in Europe in terms of reach. The Kronenberg Foundation is also a coordinator of one of the largest and top rated employee volunteering programs in Poland - Citi Handlowy Employee Volunteering Program. In the period 2006-2013 the volunteers of the Bank and Citi companies operating in Poland got engaged almost 14 thousand times in various community initiatives, completed over 1200 projects and donated more than 90,000 hours of their time.

The responsible care of the environment is one of the essential principles of the Bank's employees. The Bank's activities are carried out in an environmentally and socially responsible way, and in accordance with the principles of sustainable development.
