Africa is our home, we drive her growth. What does this mean for a brand that is 158 years old? It means that we know, understand and believe in Africa and all her opportunities. We see the potential she has for our people, our customers, entrepreneurs and those who are as passionate about this continent we call home.  We’re in the business of finding new ways to make dreams possible, and together, we believe that It Can Be.

Our family extends across 20 countries in sub-Saharan Africa and we nurture some of the most skilled, innovative and creative minds in the industry. Our purpose is to drive Africa’s growth, we are a catalyst for inclusive and sustainable economic growth in the countries we operate, and we make life better for our fellow Africans by doing business the right way. We’re more than a bank, we’re a trusted partner who is constantly raising the bar to do better and be better.

If this sounds like somewhere you belong and a place you can thrive and make a real difference, then it’s time to join the Standard Bank family. We’re looking for the dreamers and the doers. We’re looking for the future thinkers and achievers. We are looking for the trailblazers and the innovators. We’re looking for you. Dream.Do
