Who we're looking for

There’s no such thing as a ‘Standard Chartered’ person. Between us, we speak more than 170 languages and represent over 130 countries, so it’s safe to say diversity is a huge part of our business. That’s why we nurture a culture where you’re empowered to bring your authentic self to work - sharing your strengths and having a positive impact on the people around you.

Work out what you’re good at - and what you want to be good at. Then decide what a meaningful career looks like to you. It might be rapid progress or international mobility, it could be work-life balance or societal impact. As long as you share our purpose, we’ll help you meet your goals.

Do the right thing

We’re always thinking ahead, but we work firmly in the present - we’re aware of the world around us and the challenges we face as a society. We champion proactive, decisive change and we pride ourselves on having the resources, drive and integrity to get things done in a positive, meaningful way. We’re always moving, always growing, always looking to what’s next. And you can be part of it. Push for change. Own your actions. And use your entrepreneurial spirit to make things happen.
