Early careers Why Standard Chartered?

Three graduates

You're our future

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.

Disrupting processes. Building extensive networks. Growing expertise. The kind of people who thrive at Standard Chartered are the kind of people who own what they do - whatever that might be.

You don’t have to be a ‘numbers person’ to do well here. In fact, your background isn’t that important to us - it’s what you do with it that counts.

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.
