General Investment Banking programme Corporate and Investment Banking (CIB)

High calibre training for high calibre candidates. It’s as simple as that.

On this varied and challenging programme, you’ll gain a broad understanding of how an investment bank works, while making a valuable contribution to our business. You’ll experience rotations through a variety of middle and front office business areas for a duration of 9 months to a year.

Graduate rotations

Through your rotations, you’ll gain invaluable experience of a wide range of work, such as research, job shadowing, attending client meetings and functions, report writing and analysis. After experiencing the sheer variety of roles available in our business, you’ll be able to identify the work that suits you best.

These rotations may include:

Global Markets

In this team we provide a range of trading and risk management solutions across the world, and focus on all major areas of financial markets, including foreign exchange, fixed income, derivatives, equities and commodities trading businesses, securitisation, debt origination and money market funding units.

Investment Banking

In this division we have professional teams dealing with project finance, mergers & acquisitions, structured trade & commodity finance, acquisition finance group, portfolio management group and property finance. With a sector-based approach in most areas, we focus on the main JSE sectors such as mining, construction, financial services, healthcare, chemicals, oil & gas, food, retail, and many more. We look at structured lending, strategic lending and advisory services, for example funding for toll roads and the Gautrain, advising corporates on mergers and acquisitions, and listings on stock exchanges.

Credit Risk

Credit risk management is crucial in understanding the nature and quality of our counterparties as well as their concentrations in terms of industry and country. Our core aim is to partner the business to understand credit risk so we can apply appropriate pricing to optimise the bank’s risk-adjusted return. To do this we need to be competent in assessing credit, financial, economic, legal, political, regulatory, environmental and reputational risks. Risk management, as both a science and an art, has become enormously complex and increasingly professional to address the industry’s shift to an Economic Capital business philosophy, and the evolution of sophisticated derivative markets. Join us and you’ll enjoy direct, dynamic and stimulating exposure to all the key businesses and transactions at the heart of CIB’s expertise.


Our account executives in this team work closely with corporate and institutional clients around the world, giving them expert advice, creative banking solutions and excellent service to meet all their banking needs. They act as a single point of entry into the bank’s competencies and expertise, providing access to product specialists covering everything from routine banking enquiries to complex financial transactions and investments.

Relationship managers work with our business development directors who have broad finance and banking experience and specialized industry knowledge and focus. They provide strategic expertise and insight, ensuring that all solutions are customised to meet our clients’ specific requirements.

Transactional Products and Services

In TPS we help companies, government departments, and even other banks, with their transactional banking requirements – the day-to-day management of their money. This involves making and receiving payments, managing cash flow, optimising working capital and borrowing short term money. So we play a key role in the ongoing success of our clients’ businesses. Join us and you’ll work in a number of areas to suit your qualification and personality. In our cash management team, you’ll help to give help, advice and the actual mechanisms that help clients to control their cash. In international trade, we provide transactional banking support for international businesses. Join the investor services team and you’ll be part of a highly specialised area, providing a range of sophisticated institutional investment products and services. While in our business online area, you’ll help us to provide online banking products and services for every sector of the business banking market.


This programme is based in Johannesburg and is only open to South African nationals.
