About SBS Bank

SBS Bank knows a winning strategy, a performance-driven workplace and an emotionally engaged team will sustain superior performance.  Hence our drive to become a High Performance Learning Environment, thereby becoming New Zealand’s Member Bank.

Building relationships and providing long-term excellent service to our members is core to the purpose of our Branch, Contact Centre and Agribusiness teams. These front-line teams are supported by a network encompassing Marketing, Information Technology, Finance, Treasury, Human Resources and Lending/Banking Support.

To achieve our goals we need people to work hard and be committed. However, it's not a matter of "all work and no play." Fun, enjoying the people we work alongside and a safe and healthy working environment all count as reasons why SBS Bank is considered a progressive employer that "walks the talk" of its "people first" commitment.
