SARB Internship Programme

The South African Reserve Bank (SARB) is the central bank of South Africa. It was established in 1921 after Parliament passed an act, the “Currency and Bank Act of 10 August 1920”, as a direct result of the abnormal monetary and financial conditions which World War I had brought.

The South African Reserve Bank (SARB) is looking for productive and talented postgraduates to join its one-year program in January 2021.

Graduates have the opportunity to gain marketable skills through practical experience and development opportunities in a stimulating work and learning environment.
