About us

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.

Opportunities available

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.
