I began my journey in banking through the International Graduate Scheme in South Africa. Through this I was exposed to many teams and took an opportunity to work in London in the Relationship Team as a Client Manager. After 2 years in this role, I started exploring other areas in the Bank - particularly in the Sustainability Team as I found their work really interesting.
This is when I learned about the Environmental and Social Risk Management team. I couldn’t believe there was an entire team in the Bank that managed the environmental and social risks of the projects we finance and the relationships we have.
