Banking is an international profession. High standards of ethical, professional and technical competence are required worldwide, and our qualifications and standards are recognised around the world as the gold standard of banking professionalism. 

The banking profession offers individuals opportunities to pursue international careers. When our UK members are working overseas, their skills, expertise and professionalism is recognised by their international colleagues.

Overseas colleagues can also study to become Chartered Bankers, thanks to a number of joint initiatives with like-minded bodies supporting the banking sector in their countries. You can find out more in our International section.
