Building a relationship culture
The working culture at SEB is open and transparent, with a set of core values that guides us in everything we do. As you might expect from an organisation that places such a high emphasis on building long-term, rewarding relationships, SEB’s success depends on the quality and effectiveness of its staff. That’s why we believe in recruiting and retaining the best people - and in providing them with a working environment where they can learn, develop their skills and enjoy progressive and rewarding careers.
As SEB Merchant Banking is a truly international business – around half of our 2,500 employees are based outside Sweden – there are opportunities to work at locations across Europe and in the world’s leading financial centres. SEB aims to be an employer of choice and has received a number of awards that reflect the excellence of our working place.
We work in a highly competitive and fast-changing environment. We ensure that employees continue to meet their personal development needs through our Leadership Programmes, which develop both core functional specialities and leadership skills. We recognise that variety is important in career development and we encourage managers to move across disciplines to enable them to gain a holistic view of the business.
For new employees in SEB, there is a well established annual Trainee Programme and within SEB Merchant Banking, we offer summer internships to give talented students a taste of global trading and corporate banking and gain valuable insight into SEB as a future employer.
There’s a wide range of careers at SEB. Read about some of them on our profiles pages, Meet our employees.
At SEB, we’re committed to making a contribution to society, with well established and meaningful corporate sustainability and diversity policies.
