As a bank we exist to help our customers on their journey to their next – big or small. This means understanding our customers through their stories, their information, their data.
As such we focus on managing our customer’s data, ensuring that it is accessible and of a quality for the bank to leverage.
Information Management is a Business Unit within the bank that manages and improves our data. Our capabilities include the governing of information, the obtaining of information from multiple sources, cleansing of data, the storage and retrieval and exploitation of our data.
Data Management related skills are not only scarce skills globally, but important ones that will enable the bank to realise its strategic objectives. One of the ways that we are addressing this skills gap is to identify young talent that can join the bank in our Graduate Programme. The Data Winter School was born out of this need, as a precursor to the Graduate Programme. Students will be introduced to all aspects of data management from data collection, data manipulation and preparation, data usage and disposal; and data governance with client centricity at the core. The Data Winter School takes on a hands-on practical approach to ensure that students are able to translate concepts into business value.
If data is your passion and you want to be that individual who will grow and enhance your talent through thought leadership in data management; then the Standard Bank Information Management programme is where you want to be.
