Director, Strategy

Leading the way in International Banking. We support the people and companies driving investment, trade and wealth creation across Asia, Africa and the Middle East. And our heritage and values are expressed in our brand promise - here for good. See our Brand and Values

We are currently looking for a Director, Strategy.

As a Director within the team you will have the opportunity to help to shape the strategic agenda of the Group, working closely with the most senior stakeholders in the bank. Our work is broad ranging; we help the Board and top management to understand key industry trends and their implications, and also work directly with the leadership teams in business segments, geographies and functions to define their strategic priorities and implementation plans.

The work is project based, and as a Director, your role will be to manage and steer the projects you work on day to day, typically working with a team of 1-2 Associates/Associate Directors. You will work closely with the Managing Directors within the team according to the relevant expertise required for the project and build relationships with very senior stakeholders of the Bank.

The relationships you will build as you work across the Group often lead to opportunities to move directly into the business. The Strategy team has a strong track record of placing team members into exciting business roles, and a number of the bank's senior leaders are 'ex-Strategy'. This is an excellent opportunity for people looking to make the move from consulting into a line role within the Bank. At the same time, there is significant scope to move up within the Strategy team and specialise in areas of interest; we have a strong track record of growing talent and promoting high performers to Managing Director.

The team is a diverse group of around 25 individuals based in Singapore. Team members have had broad based experience in strategy consulting in the banking sector, from both leading strategy consulting firms such as McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Oliver Wyman and from other leading financial institutions.

At present we are looking for individuals that have both Strategy and Banking experience to complement our existing team.

* Play a leadership role in planning and leading projects
* Represent the Strategy team in senior management discussion on a regular basis
* Build relationships with senior stakeholders
* Manage and guide the work of Associates and Associate Directors throughout their project assignments and help with their professional development - potentially play a formal Development Manager role.
* Drive strategy team initiatives (e.g., recruiting, training)

The ideal skill set would combine financial services knowledge with a 'consulting toolkit' (preferably from a top consulting firm) and 8-10 years of working experience. Typical candidates would be Junior Partner or Associate Principal level or equivalent if in Banking.

In an ideal candidate, we look for:
* Banking consulting experience with a top tier firm and/or with strategy functions of leading banks
* Emerging markets knowledge or experience preferred
* Comfortable working in a relatively unstructured, project-based and multi-cultural environment

We are committed to building a culture that fosters a diverse and inclusive environment that's free from bias, where everyone can realise their full potential and make a positive contribution. This is just one of our values that is expressed in our brand promise - here for good. Apply Now...
