The future of Personal and Business Banking (PBB) relies on developing exceptional leaders who can develop innovative ideas that benefit our customers and keep our business moving forward. On this programme you’ll develop a range of skills and will enjoy a variety of experiences that will enable you to create and implement strategies, improve performance and initiate the big ideas that ensure we remain a major force in African banking
On this 18-week programme you’ll start to learn about the technical aspects of the banking and finance industry, as well as developing essential skills that will enable you to become a future leader in our business. Skills such as effective communication, personal branding, career management and presentation skills. Just as important, you’ll start to understand how much our business is focused on giving our customers the highest quality products and services. And you’ll have plenty of opportunities to network with senior managers and even executive directors from different parts of PBB. As part of your initial training, you’ll also start to get involved with one of our community initiatives.
Your induction will introduce you to Standard Bank as a group and our South African business. You’ll learn about our heritage, our position in the South African economy, and how we support and improve communities in Africa. In fact, your initial four weeks of training and induction will involve everything from classroom training to debates, simulation exercises and practical project work.
The skills you develop will equip you to move into the first of two project rotations in different PBB business areas. In these areas, you’ll get involved in meaningful projects that have a real purpose, while continuing to develop your skills through further development opportunities. Some of the projects that our graduates have been involved in include youth banking and insights campaigns, business process and efficiency management, community banking, self service banking (cell phone, Internet banking and ATM), branch redesigns, designing the Standard Bank Cricket website, fraudulent deals analysis, resolving complaints and Blue Bean (Credit Card).
You’ll need to be in at least the second year of an undergraduate degree. If you’re on a post-graduate course, or you’ve graduated and have some work experience, all the better.
If you’re in your second year of your studies, you’ll join the programme for the first two months. Then, when university starts again you’ll head back to study. If you’ve already completed your degree you’ll continue on the programme and will be placed permanently in the business area that best suits your skills and abilities.
There are so many different career opportunities in PBB that your degree could be in any subject. Whatever your degree, you’ll need to be a South African citizen, ideally with some kind of leadership and a track record of community involvement. In short, you’ll be a passionate, dedicated and well-rounded person who’s prepared to work hard and have fun enjoying the rewards.
