At Standard Bank, we approach corporate and investment banking differently. How? By focusing on opportunities within the world's emerging markets. It's a strategy that led to our award as Best Investment Bank in Africa for 2008 from Euromoney magazine. So, when it comes to graduate programmes, ours offer the kind of experience you won't find anywhere else.
For over 148 years we’ve provided high quality, innovative banking services to people in developing economies. Now, we’re one of Africa's largest and most successful banking groups. And we’re building on our strong African roots by creating successful connections and groundbreaking transactions in Africa and emerging markets which have links to Africa. It’s an approach that helped us win Emerging Market Deal of the Year 2010 from Euroweek and Investment Bank of the Year 2010 from African Banker magazine.
In our open and friendly culture, people from different backgrounds work together to understand and address the markets we work in. You’ll find a sociable atmosphere where we get on with doing a great job to benefit our clients, our own business and emerging economies around the world. Throughout your programme you’ll have the support of a senior manager or director as a mentor, as well as a recent graduate who'll act as a buddy. And you’ll enjoy the scope to build an exciting and varied career.
We offer graduate programmes in Investment Banking, Global Markets, Transactional Products & Services and Risk in Nigeria, Ghana and East Africa. We also offer a Private Banking programme in London and Jersey.
Join one of our graduate programmes in Africa or the UK and you’ll gain wide exposure to different parts of our global business, working on real projects to deliver solutions that are expertly suited to our clients’ needs. It’s a challenging, stimulating and enjoyable environment that encourages you to make the most of your potential. You’ll work in cross-border teams and will enjoy the freedom to develop fresh ideas, create solutions in your own way, and make them happen.
