As one of the world’s most international banks, one of the key differentiators of the Standard Chartered Bank International Graduate Programme is the opportunities offered across SCBs footprint of Asia, Africa and the Middle East.The International Graduate Programme is ~18 months long, including 4 weeks of induction, 11 months of training rotations and 6 months of business rotations. Internships are 10 weeks long.
- For the Graduate roles, you must have an undergraduate degree and be eligible to work permanently in the country that you are applying to. If you’re applying for a role in the UAE, we may consider applications from nationals of Middle East and North African countries.
- To apply for an Internship position, you must have the legal right to work in the country for which you’re applying for the full duration of the internship (student visas or holiday work passes are allowed, provided they are valid for the duration of the internship). We are unable to apply for work permits for any Internship.
- For the Internships, you must be in your second to last year of study to apply. We will accept applications from final year students who are required to complete mandatory National or Military Service after graduation.
- As English is the business language of Standard Chartered across the world, you need to be able to speak business-level English. Being able to speak more than one language would be an advantage.
The programme gives you exposure to smaller businesses and multinationals alike, offering ideas for cash flow improvement and capital optimisation. We will build your skills and knowledge through rotations, to add value and contribute to meeting the needs of our clients. The projects you work on will require your analytical skills, an ability to work independently and an instinct for trends and innovations. You will learn from the best, evolve professionally as well as personally, and build a firm foundation upon which to specialise later. Here are some experiences you could look forward to:
- Assist in developing sales strategy for clients and pitches for new products
- Learn about segments, industries and how client working capital cycles impact business
- Analyse research trends and current market conditions to contribute to launching new products to market.
