Technology is the backbone of our organisation, and they’re the team who are driving our transformation into a future-ready platform business. So, it’s an especially exciting time to join this Graduate programme.

Financial and Information Technology (IT) services are fast-converging sectors. And here in the Technology segments of the Bank, we’re leading the charge – by evolving our workplaces and people to meet rapidly changing business and customer needs.

There is the large incoherence in the demand for technology skills verses the supply of skills of it across the continent. As Financial services our competitors are no longer just other banking organisations, these now include include Fin-techs and Start -up’s who offer more attractive, flexible “gig” type work. The attraction and retention of technology skills is also a prevalent challenge we face. For these reasons building constant skills pipeline becomes “a must do.”

We’re set to become a 160-year-old ‘start-up’, as we combine our innovative agility with the benefits of our respected African heritage, clear purpose, and established brand. It’s an exhilarating time to work here – and we’re leading the pack by implementing real and relevant changes to meet our people, business, and customer needs.

We have a very dynamic culture one with a steep initial learning curve, tailored for individuals who want to augment their technology skills with core business skills as well. We are passionate about Africa as our home and our ability and responsibility to drive her growth.

This 12-month Graduate Programme offers a transformative journey – as we work to future-proof our team’s skills and capabilities, while meeting world-class delivery standards across digitisation; technology and operations in our drive to win.
