The Nedbank Graduate Development Programme (NGDP) offers you a great start to your career journey and presents opportunities ranging from investment banking, information technology (IT), human resources, marketing, auditing, risk management, credit analysis, economics, logistics to chartered accounting and many more.
Nedbank is looking for students from a number of disciplines of study, including commerce, engineering, maths, science, statistics, law, IT, business science, arts and many more. We also offer training outside of public practice (TOPP) to students that aspire to be worldclass chartered accountants.
What the programme covers
The NGDP is a fast-paced and challenging, yet fun, development programme. The programme kicks off with an induction/orientation week during which you will get a broad overview of the bank and will meet and interact with executives, senior managers and other graduates at Nedbank.
Thereafter you will be exposed to various learning modules and gain on-the-job experience that will help build your competence to function effectively in the banking world. Blended learning approaches will be used and many of the modules will demand that you apply your classroom learning to your workplace. The learning will focus on personal effectiveness, technical competence, IT, business competence, compliance training and social responsibility.
In certain divisions graduates will have an opportunity to rotate around various subdivisions, exploring how the entire division operates. There would also be debriefing sessions, which will allow you the opportunity to reflect on your learning and performance in the workplace and motivate and sustain you on the programme.
Why you should complete the programme
Your years at university have assisted you with acquiring knowledge in your specific field of study. What they haven’t developed is your competence in the business world. The NGDP is a contract-based 12-month programme that is designed to help you bridge the gap between university and business by helping you gain relevant business experience. In addition, the programme results in the achievement of a recognised postgraduate qualification from a leading South African business school on successful completion of a number of compulsory formal learning modules.
