Why work with us: 
Because we believe in our people, our planet and prosperity. That with the right support and passion, can be turned into purpose. And that money is really nothing if it cannot bring about the positive change the world so needs.  
If you believe this too then the question should really be, why not? 
Why Nedbank: 
It would be hard for us to talk about ourselves without money. So here we go.  
Money may be our backbone, but excellence is our culture. And diversity, our true driving force. We believe in creating a working environment that enables our people to help us bring our values to life. And to do so, we don’t just aim to acknowledge our differences but to celebrate them as the very mix we need to continue being the difference that enhances lives beyond banking.  
For this reason, our people are very important to us… Every single one of them in the financial, technological, legal, administrative, creative, hospitality or operational space. Each one of them is our mirror. They are our reason for wanting to do better. And our reminder that we are in the service of others. Nedbank’s culture is embedded in values that promote accountability, a strong focus on meeting client needs, and on building a positive brand image. 
Workplace innovation: 
From the moment you step into Nedbank, you will be guided through our processes and all the agile ways of working that allow us to produce high-quality financial products and services at an incredible speed – with room for innovation at all times.  
New talent is paired with seasoned talent so that novel ideas and trusted expertise become one. 
Teams are equipped with a varied array of professionals from all walks of life so that each one is always mentored by another’s view. In many parts of our buildings there are literally no doors because we believe that open and constructive dialogue and a continuous exchange of ideas is what keeps us all learning.  
And if you ever become really stuck you can always refer to our fully-fledged employee portal that contains everything you need to know about your job, your available resources, and how you as an individual can be empowered by the bank to unleash your full potential while gaining lifelong perspective on what it means to be the difference.
