Standard Chartered is a leading international banking group committed to building a sustainable business over the long-term. We provide a wide-range of products and services for personal and business customers across 71 markets and have been operating in some of the world′s most dynamic markets for over 150 years. More than 90 per cent of our income and profits are derived from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
Southeast Asia is a region that counts amongst the fastest growing and most diverse regions in the world. Consisting of 10 member states, the Association of Southeast Asia nations (ASEAN) has seen a tremendous increase in intra-regional trade, rapid urbanisation, growth of the middle class and consumer markets amongst other factors.
Over the last 30 years, ASEAN′s growth has been nothing but remarkable, outpacing global growth by 2% on average and outgrowing other regions, including Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa and Middle East and North Africa - over the same period.
We believe more than half of ASEAN has the potential to increase potential growth to 7% or higher. At 7% growth, an economy doubles in size every 10 years.
As the only international bank present in all 10 ASEAN markets, we have developed a unique understanding of the region and the needs across the markets.
A Graduate Career with Standard Chartered
As one of the world′s most international banks, one of the key differentiators of our International Graduate Programme is the opportunities we offer across our footprint of Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
Right from the start of our programme, we host our five week International Induction Programme in Shanghai to connect our global network of International Graduates with their peers from the 30+ countries we recruit for. Our International Graduate Programme is comprised of six business streams, aligned to each of our business banking areas. Each stream is focused on a unique part of the Bank, allowing you to select a business area based on your interests. Our streamed programme is designed to help you develop specialist experience right from the start of your career.
After completing your first year as part of the International Graduate Programme you might take a role in one of our local, regional or global teams. You might choose an amazing position in your home country, or, like 50% of our Graduates, your first role with the Bank may include an international move.
Choosing the right graduate opportunity can be tough, and the truth is there are no easy answers, but there are lots of great questions. Ask as many questions as possible to get details and clues to point you in the right direction and help you figure out what type of role, business and industry is right for you.
