First National Bank Graduate Programme, As an FNB Grad, you’re going to be spending a lot of time with us, so it’s best you know the ins and outs of what really happens at FNB. To make sure you’re in the know, you spend three weeks in the “Welcome” department. Here you learn about the way FNB works and the everyday runnings, like the FNB Intranet, dress code, your payslip and medical aid. This is the time you get to network with your fellow graduates, your managers, HR and all the CEOs.
Just as any period comes to an end, the Graduate period is closed off at a weekend finale conducted at an amazing venue. Here you get together with the Grad Team to reflect and acknowledge the journey you’ve made so far. It’s a weekend made of memories that will stay with you after you have become part of the Elite Grad Alumni.
We get it, you’re at the top of your student game, but there’s so much to learn. For your first six months as an FNB Graduate you’ll be trained and learn valuable skills that will be vital in the future. But you’re not in it alone, all training is done in groups, which is great because you get to catch up with your fellow grads that are getting their own jobs done in their own fields. Some modules covered are Project Management, Interpersonal Skills, Presentation Skills, Business Writing and more.
Service Channels Project
One of the first big tests you’ll face is the Service Channels Project, but you’ve got this. This project is handed to you within the induction period. You’ll split into teams and engage with various FNB branches (their managers and staff), as well as visiting our contact centres and ATMs. This is the first time as a graduate that you’ll realise your work with us is taken extremely seriously, some of our previous Grads came up with eWallet and other innovative projects, so we’re always keen to hear what you have up your sleeve.
Now here’s your final big test, but it’s a great one. The Graduate Project is done in groups. Each group must source a project that needs to come to life before November of your Grad year. You present it to stakeholders and customers of FNB and the Top 3 innovations are awarded prizes, which range from trips to Cape Town ; Sun City to name a few. Furthermore, if your project was truly impressive you can even log it on to the bank’s Innovators Program where you can contend with the best of the best for prize money up to over a million bucks! Every idea counts with us, it’s what keeps us ahead of the other financial institutions, so we love to be wowed.
