Banking Jobs in Nigeria, Graduate Jobs in Nigeria

We’re rapidly growing as a business and therefore Human Resources plays a critical role in that growth – advising, equipping and helping the business to shape the future. Working closely with line managers, HR attracts, nurtures and enables our talented people to create sustained high performance through engagement, structured learning and mentoring.

Why choose HR?

  • To play an integral role in developing our key asset – our people
  • To gain insight across the Bank’s businesses and functions
  • To work closely with line managers as a valued business partner
  • To understand how to engage people and encourage high performance
  • To help the business take and deliver key strategic decisions

Entry requirements

You’ll need a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree to be accepted.

A degree in HR Management would be an advantage, but is not essential.

Programme overview

This programme is designed to give you broad and in-depth experience of both strategic and operational HR. You’ll spend a year learning how HR relationship managers add value to the organisation, through leveraging various HR products to drive strategic business outcomes. This experience will be complemented by three intensive rotations in specialist areas such as learning and talent development, performance & engagement or reward.

Your rotation experiences will be coupled with formal development, including classroom and e-learning elements, plus a secondment to our world-class Shared Service Centre in India where you’ll develop a firm foundation in Human Resources service delivery and infrastructure.

The programme consists of four standard rotations of varying lengths:

Rotation 1 – (11 months)

  • Our relationship with risk
  • What and how external factors affect the HRSSC

Rotation 3 – Centre of Expertise (8 months)
During this rotation, you’ll work in one of our global product areas. These areas focus on the strategy, the policy and processes that informs our work. You’ll have an opportunity to build your knowledge around the way we integrate our philosophies in practice through resourcing, reward, learning and talent development.

Rotation 4 – Business HR within a Consumer Banking branch or Wholesale Banking team (2 months)
This will include gaining an understanding of:

  • How we drive value and deliver exceptional customer service
  • The purpose and structure of our core products in either Consumer or Wholesale Banking
