Manage lifecycle of an employee from end to end.Upskilling different Human Resources Business Partners on the self service portal (ESS)Keeping track of all the queries via team track.Capture and process transactional documents.

Standard Bank was a great company to work for with opportunities to advance yourself by attending a range of in house courses. Getting to know my clients and form a bond with them that can sometimes be for years was one of the best experiences, even if I just visited a once of client to give/train them on the fleet management system was also and experience. When new management was appointed they began with micro management our whole team felt that there was a distrust yet we all made targets when they took over. Unfortunately due to this they lost a few people all who had over 20 years of experience.

Put proper people as leaders to coordinate the business and make working at Standard bank worthwhile. You become a threat and get targeted if one views their opinion and differ with leaders with low self esteem.

My time as an employee at SBSA was short but enjoyable. I began as a night shift collections agent in the SBSA Super Block call center in June 2006. After a short period, I was asked to attend the Team Leader training course, after completing the course I was encouraged to then apply for the night shift team leader position and was promoted within a year.

High demand for cloud-based microservices and technology but very little understanding and support when it comes to supporting such an infrastructure. Windows and MAC-based environment with very little if any Linux Desktop support. Development is primarily aimed at Linux cloud solutions.

MY job at standard bank required me to work with money and and customer accounts, end of day cash up as well as customer service and sales. The staff were like a family, we treated each other with respect. The workplace was warm and welcoming but at times stressful. For me the hardest part of my job was dealing with cash and making sure that your accounts balance at the end of the day. The one thing i enjoyed about working for standard bank was the type people you get to meet every day.
