The programme

It's vital you take the time to understand which graduate programme is right for you, so make sure you read through this section and size up the full range of our opportunities. Entry requirements and course structure vary considerably, but there's one thing all of our programmes have in common: you'll be developing your skills, gaining experience and contributing to real-world results from the moment you join us.

Ready? It starts here.

Enabling Functions - Integrated Operational Risk (IOR) graduate programme

This programme will equip you with all the skills and experience you need to begin and build a career tackling corporate crime. Thanks to the exposure we'll give you to financial crime investigation and forensic audit, you'll also be ready to qualify as a fraud examiner. We'll give you true exposure to our business from the start, with rotations around our three business units in South Africa and beyond. You'll see the vast variety of roles in our business first-hand through shadowing, client contact, and your own project work.

Duration: 24 months

Degree: Minimum BCom Honours or equivalent. You must have studied forensic accounting, accounting and taxation applications; law subjects are an advantage.

Previous work experience: Maximum one year post qualification.


Citizenship: You must be a citizen or permanent resident of the country you're applying to.


2016 Applications open from 1 March to 30 June 2015

* CA (SA) applications open until 30 July 2015



What you'll get

We're committed to quality and value in everything we offer our customers. And because you'll contribute to both from the moment you join us, it's only fair we recognise the quality you bring. And just how much we value it.

You'll see it in how we manage and reward your performance, as well as the extra benefits you could be entitled to – perhaps even shares in the bank. It all depends on the programme you choose, plus one huge factor: you.

How you'll grow

We strive to push our bank forward so we can effect real, positive change for the communities we work in today, and those we hope to work in tomorrow. But nothing's more important than helping our people push themselves forward and expand their potential.

Your core training is adapted to the programme you choose. But everything else is down to you. Right here is a world of development opportunities – anything from shadowing senior colleagues to sharing expertise at international conferences – and a continent of untapped potential. Your chances; your choices.
