What you will learn
We strive to push our bank forward so we can effect real, positive change for the communities we work in today, and those we hope to work in tomorrow. Nothing is more important than helping our people push themselves forward and expand their potential.
Your core training is adapted to the programme you choose. But everything else is down to you.
Right here is a world of development opportunities – anything from shadowing senior colleagues to sharing expertise at international conferences – and a continent of untapped potential. Your chances; your choices.
You will be assigned a “mentor” or “buddy” – someone with a similar personality and background who ensures your social integration into the company – and ensures that you learn what you need to know about the business of the company, the industry and the job at hand.
You will be put on a carefully planned programme geared to provide maximum, structured, practical exposure to our respective businesses. This is one of the reasons our graduates become productive so quickly.
