Information About Standard Bank Internship Programme Opportunities on 2020 for Internship Seekers who are Interested in Minimising Cyber Financial Crime Impacts
Even though it was officially released in South Africa at 1962, Standard Bank’s histories can be traced since 1862, a time where South African right-wing politician John Paterson teamed with a group of businessmen to build a bank in London named Standard Bank of British South Africa, until then the “British” word was removed on 1883.
Until now, this bank known as The Standard Bank of South Africa is the subsidiary of British’s Standard Bank with more than 80% shareholding percentages from the year of 1967. At the same time, it becomes South Africa’s largest financial service groups with 20 African country branches and many other branches all over the world.
Its time-tested history along with its strong presence in South Africa makes it one of the most conducive places to learn. Additionally, Standard Bank itself provides plenty opportunities for university students to learn and join Standard Bank’s forces. One of those opportunities is the internship programme.
