My role is vital to ensure data quality management. It helps organisations leaders to make better decisions by using accurate and complete data.

There are lots of opportunities within the Bank and scope to get involved in delivering new products and services.  

 How should someone prepare for an interview with Standard Chartered? 

Remember your subject matter expertise and be customer oriented.  

Are there any quotes you live and work by?  

Keep learning new things. 

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given? 

To take care of my health. 


My typical week is varied and quite hectic! 

I begin the day by hurrying to complete my household chores. Get the office bus to work, join an agile meeting and then start my work. During breaks I enjoy quick coffee shots and walk in the corridor with colleagues.  In the evening, I return home on the office bus. There’s a lot of traffic, so to pass the time I like to count the traffic signals on the way home (yes, it’s a little weird!). After reaching home, I love spending time with my children and preparing dinner. I listen to music and then get a good night’s sleep.  The next day, I repeat it all again each day until the weekend.
