Karen Ijape started in Goroka Branch doing Customer Service and general banking duties, in 1978.
"40 years on, I still put on the uniform and report to work, but today, I am the Team Leader - Telling. I remember my first day entering the Bank as it was just yesterday. It stands clear, because we didn't have as many PNG staff, like we do today. I had to do my best, learn as much as I could and continue to improve.
There's always been that great culture, and the support that the management would always give. This has never changed, BSP continues to have great leaders who continue to support, encourage, build and mentor staff."
