We’re dedicated to maintaining our roots. We want to be available, accessible and accepted in the local markets we serve, and to do everything we can to help communities and businesses prosper in a sustainable way.
That’s where our people come in. Disruptors, game-changers, creatives. Analysts, innovators, achievers. Our early careers roles go way beyond banking - spanning different nationalities, specialisms, backgrounds and ambitions to shape the future and make change happen.
We look for more than numbers - we look for ambition, for drive and for a restless desire to change things for good. So whether your background is in engineering, tech, design or something else entirely, give us energy and enthusiasm and we’ll give you the freedom, support and opportunities to grow a meaningful career.
We’re redefining banking to put people at the heart of everything we do. As well as growing businesses and helping communities flourish, we’re involved in a range of different people-focussed initiatives. We rebuild homes via Habitat for Humanity in Nepal, support girls with Goal and much more, so however you want to do the right thing, you’ll find a way to get involved.
Why choose us?
Join one of our early careers programmes and you won’t be seen as a number. You’ll be seen as a future leader with the potential to change not just the future of banking, but the future of the world. With the support, autonomy and opportunity to make an impact in international markets, you’ll work with colleagues from diverse backgrounds and learn directly from senior leaders. What you do next is up to you.
As well as starting an impactful career on an international stage, you’ll do it knowing you’re part of something bigger than banking. You’ll discover how to use your entrepreneurial spirit to do good - building meaningful links between communities, local businesses and our own.

From fintech to sustainability, trading to investments, we have a range of different opportunities that go beyond traditional banking to tackle some of society’s greatest challenges. So, whatever your ambitions, you’ll be exposed to the whole banking process, and be challenged every step of the way.
