An internship placement in Guaranty Trust Bank in 2010 remains one great opportunity I will forever cherish. It was my first exposure to the corporate environment which set a high precedent for my future employer. Little did I know that this great organization was that future employer… yet another great privilege in my book. I returned in July 2013 and attended GTBank’s Training School, which was a rewarding 4-month period of training and mentoring.

My career here has given me opportunities to work in 3 business units and they have all been very rewarding.

In the weeks prior to joining the Bank, I expressed increasing doubts within me as I was making a career move. This was because my background is in area of law practice where I was taught to be professionally expressive and to constantly strive at expanding the frontiers; qualities which I reasoned would be unwelcome in a big and secure institution like GTBank.

How unfounded my concerns turned out to be! I have discovered GTBank to be an organisation where professionalism, trustworthiness and innovation are not just buzz words but are inextricably linked to the Bank’s corporate existence.

If you are determined to rise and thrive career-wise, this is the place for you. My only regret? I did not join the amazing institution earlier!
