How the programme works

At the beginning of the programme, you will complete mini rotations across Investec's Corporate & Investment Banking (CIB), Private Bank and Wealth & Investment divisions.

You’ll then immerse yourself into our CIB business. This will give you a holistic view of our business, with the opportunity to rotate across our advisory, lending and operations desks.

Learning opportunities

We are looking for graduates who have a passion for finance, but we don’t expect you to come into our business as an expert. This opportunity is designed as a learning programme, which is why we are degree-agnostic.
We want you to absorb as much knowledge about our business as possible both on the job working on the desks and off the job completing the CFA Level 1. All of this will help drive your passion and career in finance.

The application process

In order to determine your suitability, and to make sure that we are the right fit for you, all of our Corporate & Investment Banking Graduate Programme applicants go through the same process:

Investec's Corporate & Investment Banking graduate programme: applications open in September, with video applications and first-round interview taking place in September and October. The graduate assessment day and executive interviews are in November. Offers will be made in November and December.

A different kind of opportunity

Diversity, inclusion and belonging at Investec

Diversity helps us innovate, adapt and thrive. We can only unleash this in an inclusive environment. This means not only accepting differences but making sure that everyone feels that they belong here – that they can bring their whole selves to work.
