20 Years a Lioness! – Celebrating Yetunde Arowosafe.

It’s not every day you find someone who has dedicated 20 years of their career to one organisation. At UBA Group, we are lucky to have employees whose love for the brand have seen them put in dedicated years in service to our customers. 

In May 2001, one year out of the university, Yetunde Arowosafe, a graduate of Soil Science took up an appointment as a Teller in what she would later term a deviation from her original career plan to be an academician. This mother of two teenage daughters captures her 20 years in UBA as a full-on learning experience and growth platform.

Yetunde has served in various capacities in the bank including being a Customer Service Manager, Branch Operations Manager to mention a few. In her current role, she leads the Profit Centre Management team at the Nnamdi Azikiwe, Abuja business office. 

A customer-1st Champion, Yetunde’s memories of her time in UBA is filled with the people she has come across through her journey here – from customers to staff. 

Growth for Yetunde has come in different ways; each day with its own opportunity to discover new things. “When I started leading a team, she shared, “I realized I had a passion for people management and this led me to study for a master in Human Resources and employee relations and today I’m also studying for a PhD in Organizational Behaviour. Through all of these, I have managed to find a perfect balance with work, family and studying.”

When she is not working or studying, Yetunde enjoys reading. She shares her current read as; “Recruiting millennials: Exploring the impact of CSR involvement and pay signalling on organizational attractiveness”. 

To young people navigating the path of work and life, Yetunde says “Find a balance, find a passion, be dedicated and find a job you enjoy and one that would support you all the way.”
