It's never too early to get ahead. Because even if you're not ready for one of our graduate programmes yet, we've got other ways to show you the kind of difference you could be making with us in the future.


This is an ideal opportunity for final year students to gain some valuable working experience with Africa’s largest bank. 

As a Standard Bank intern, you will work on real projects and be exposed to our people, our culture and the fast-paced, ever-changing banking environment. This will give you hands-on experience and let you identify where your skills can be utilised as you begin your career. The banking industry requires a variety of skills, and this is your chance to see where you could add the best value.

So if you would like to get a head start in your career, apply as soon as you can:

Applications will be open from 1- 22 May 2014.

If you score well in the initial screening and interviews, we will let you know whether you’ve made it into our internship programme by 10 June 2014.

Please note that a place in the internship programme does not guarantee you a place in the graduate programme.


There are only 15 to 20 internships that will be available.

Our internship programme will run from Monday 16 June - Friday 18 July 2014 in Johannesburg.
