At Investec, we are more about creating paths than following them. Distinctly different by desire, we strive to live Out of the Ordinary. The same can be said about the people we employ. We look for qualities others may not recognise as valuable because what makes you unique cannot be captured on paper.
We invest in developing and upskilling our people, while encouraging them to be the driving force behind their own growth. By leading their own development journeys, our colleagues maximise the learning opportunities that are most relevant to their needs.
The work is the learning, the learning is the work
At Investec, we believe that learning exists in all that we do. It should not be confined to courses or programmes, nor should it be considered a one-off event. Rather, learning is an everyday practice and a lifelong opportunity.
Challenge, be challenged, grow
The culture at Investec fosters open and honest dialogue. We continuously enhance performance through immediate and direct feedback at an individual, team and organisational level. Our people are empowered to be direct, challenge convention and truly drive their and their team’s development.
Our people is our culture. They come from all over the world with various academic, ethnic and social backgrounds. We work hard to create and provide a stimulating and progressive working environment. Investec looks to employ and inspire entrepreneurial, free thinkers with a social conscience.
While some bureaucracy is unavoidable, Investec believes in a flat-managerial structure. Employees experience a great deal of autonomy, allowing them to be individuals, flourish and realise their true potential.
Let the team tell you themselves
At Investec, we are a human environment first and then a corporation. Working here you have to come as your self, an open honest individual. We work and want to work with real human beings, which is why we rarely believe in tests and assessments, it's about who you are, how you work and what you add to the team rather than the titles, rank or degrees you've accumulated.
Our hiring process is set up to do exactly that, to get to know you (as a character, as a human being) and you to get get to know the company and team you would work in.
The interviews are more discussions than formal interviews, we would start with an introductory discussion with our careers team. Followed by a meeting with the team and team leads, and final chats will be with the Head of Department.
Whether you're looking for a startup, tech giant or remote opportunity – there's something for everyone.
