Who the team is

The technology team in our Corporate & Investment Banking business is hyper-creative in solving problems, with an attitude that is more than ‘can-do’. We’re honest with each other and like a family, have robust debates that are born of conviction and care. 



What the team does

  • Build applications that face the market and our clients
  • Buy and build applications that face our colleagues
  • Buy and run core applications that need enhancement and expanding all the time
  • Buy, build and curate data sets to use them to unlock value for our clients
  • Constantly learn, try stuff and improve.

But is tech taken seriously?

Investec is on a journey to reinvent itself, while weaving technology deeper into our DNA. We use best practice methods, ultra-modern tech stacks and, recently, have some key deeply technical hires.


Here, you’ll learn skills that did not exist in the market a year ago as well as being involved in solving real business problems that will result in real revenue.

Gain and impart knowledge

Trust us, you will never sit still. You will have solid opportunities to learn, develop, and teach us, too.
As a member of the team, you can take part of our engineer’s blogging, tech industry talks, guilds of best practice, flexible working, teaching coding bootcamps to non-technical colleagues, and many other technical cultural initiatives to enrich both yourself and the organisation.

The application process

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

Investec's Technology graduate programme: applications open in September, with video applications taking place in September and October. You will then complete a technical assessment at home in November. The assessment day will be in December, with offers also made that month.

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.
