The Bank’s mission and core values articulate what we in TDB stand for and how we work  with our clients, our partners and each other. Our commitment to becoming a world-class  financial institution demands excellence in every respect.

Our conduct, therefore, is inspired by the high ethical standards enshrined in the Bank’s  Code of Professional Ethics which sets forth standards of conduct for staff and management  to discharge duties and responsibilities with honesty, objectivity, diligence and loyalty.

The Bank is an equal opportunity employer and we believe that recruitment from a diverse  geographical background enriches the institution with skills that enhance the quality of our  human resources and ultimately the achievement of our objective of contributing to the  economic development of the Eastern and Southern African region.

The Bank deliberately sets out to recruit and develop high quality staff members from our  member states who have the ability to meet the high standards of performance that will be  expected of them. We offer our employees competitive salaries and additional benefits that  are commensurate with the standards of excellence that are expected of an international  organization of our stature. Positions are advertised under the Vacancies webpage on the Bank’s website, as they  become available.


The Young Professionals Program is designed to attract a pool of young and talented multidisciplinary individuals from TDB member countries,  with outstanding educational and leadership qualities.

The program provides participants with a well-structured intervention that is designed to further develop their professional and leadership  capabilities and to support the Bank in meeting its operational requirements in the mid to long term.
