Crystal van Reenen, Capitec’s Talent Acquisition Manager

We had the pleasure of speaking to Crystal van Reenen, Capitec’s Talent Acquisition Manager, about the bank’s human-centric approach to serving their clients. It’s an ethos they’ve fostered by using the same approach with their team.

“At Capitec, we always look for individuals that can totally own being the CEO of their role. That means always putting the client first, acting with energy and taking ownership,” shares Crystal.

She adds, “We’re lucky that people really want to work for the organisation. We’ve got a fantastic business brand, so we seized the opportunity to expand on our employer brand. This started with showcasing a day in the life of our executives and sharing with people what our leaders do. We then went to hiring managers to gain insight into the skill sets they look for when recruiting new team members, and took it a step further by then speaking to the people that are actually working in these roles.”

Positions at the company range from jobs for graduates to senior professionals like business analysts, developers, analyst developers, data engineers, scientists and BI analysts.

Those interested in working for a bank that is forward-thinking and shaking up traditional banking, while at the same time working for a leading employer brand, can deep dive into the culture within Capitec by visiting the bank’s website and LinkedIn page and viewing the ‘day in the life of’ conversations with developers, analysts, managers and more.
