Standard Chartered Bank International Graduate Programme 2023 for Graduate Africans


We are a leading international bank focused on helping people and companies prosper across Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

To us, good performance is about much more than turning a profit. It’s about showing how you embody our valued behaviours – do the right thing, better together and never settle – and our brand promise, Here for good.

We’re committed to promoting equality in the workplace and creating an inclusive and flexible culture where everyone can realize their full potential and contribute positively to our organization. This, in turn, helps us better support our broad client base.


We help customers across our footprint manage their day-to-day finances and savings. You’ll learn about our product offerings, how we position them in the market and the processes and strategies behind them. Your experiences will cover different segments, products and channels and our customer experience.

You’ll get involved in the following:

  • Monitoring the global markets for patterns and insights to produce market reports

  • Shape the development and way we present our wealth management products and services to clients

  • Develop client behaviour analytics and formulate new client engagement plans

Your career progression

At the end of your 18-month programme, you’ll join a role in Wealth Management. These could be in areas such as:

  • Product Management

  • Investment Advisory

  • Business and Segment Management

  • Treasury

What you’ll do over 18 months

  • International induction is classroom sessions, case studies, and tailored technical training split by business functions.

  • 12-month training rotation – you’ll spend twelve months in Wealth Management, learning how to engage with clients. You’ll broaden your experience with rotations into areas including Risk, Product/Segments, Distribution/Front Line, and Digital.

  • 6-month business rotation – your last rotation will add to your knowledge of the product and client transaction lifecycle. It will also expose you to areas such as Funds, Wealth Propositions and Solutions, and Investment Strategy.
