Project Coordinator, Stanbic Foundation at Standard Bank Group

Standard Bank is not an abstract legal entity. We are our people.
And our people have a distinct culture - a way of thinking and behaving.
To help us embody this culture in everything we do, we've come up with six attributes: expertise, opportunity, integrity, collaboration, performance and growth.
These attributes explain what we believe in collectively. They also guide our behaviour and give us a shared frame of reference for what matters most to us.
Ultimately, these are qualities we want our business to stand for.
But each of them starts with you.Job Purpose
