You and FNB

From varsity into a career

This is the ideal opportunity for you to see different segments of the Bank, as well as the vast career opportunities, where you could fit in.

Your Degree

Do I make the cut?

What we are looking for

Accounting/Finance

Finance is concerned with resource allocation as well as resource management, acquisition and investment. In simple terms, finance deals with matters related to money. Finance helps you develop analytical and problem solving skills while teaching you how to think on your feet. These skills come in handy at FNB, especially at FNB Commercial: whether it's approving a credit facility or understanding a business cash flow. Finance is the study of understanding these processes and crafting a usable solution. Therefore, Finance is the heartbeat of banking.

Once you've acquired your degree in this field there are various careers to pursue within FNB. Find out more about how to take it further.

Computer Science/IT

Computer scientists play an important role in developing the most innovative advancements in computer technology. Finance and banking firms rely heavily on computer programmers (without necessarily a background in Finance) to create and execute programs that perform all kinds of transactional and expansion operations. Many areas within the bank depend heavily on their computer systems and require skilled developers to design and build software that is innovative and solves computing problems effectively.

Actuarial Science

Actuarial Science: a field where only a brave few dare to tread. And yet, Actuarial Science provides a unique and important view on the banking industry. So how will your studies be useful for the banking environment? Actuarial scientists are taught to look at problems in a unique way. The creation and use of models is also a strong asset. Without models, better processes cannot be developed. With models, however, the banking industry becomes a fascinating and beautiful entity which will provide endless challenges and fun.

Engineering

Engineering is about problem solving. Banks, like all institutions, have problems. As an engineer, the logical thinking and strategic analysis skills that are developed at university encourage new and innovative ways of thinking about typical problems experienced by the bank. Basically, engineers can provide a different view point on most problems. Engineers are taught to think about problems as a whole and can thus provide a "big picture" feel to other members of the project team.

Legal

There are two components to Law in Banking. The Banking industry is regulated very heavily, at any point there could be as many as 7 pieces of legislation that apply to a particular issue. Law teaches you to find the applicable legal principles, the possible penalties and how to comply with those legal principles. Therefore the first part of Law in Banking is advising people on what the Law says they can and cannot do. The second part involves drafting legal documents that govern the relationship between parties within the Bank, and parties outside the Bank. A background in Law would teach you how to incorporate legal principles into agreements to achieve a desired effect.

Information Systems/Informatics

The study of Information Systems teaches you how to strategically align the business and IT areas within an organisation. The fundamental skills learnt from the Systems Development Life Cycle ensures that systems are developed from concept to conclusion and that these systems have an identifiable business need. Information Systems provides an overview of the different roles: whether you enjoy requirements analysis, user interface design or programming, at FNB these skills can be honed in various areas as a Business Analyst, User Interface Specialist, Systems Analyst or Developer depending on the career path you choose!
