After applications close on 27 March, shortlisting for both the Graduate Programme and Summer Internship Programme will commence. Our shortlisting will be in four stages:
The Reserve Bank pays for your flights, accommodation and taxi fares if these are necessary, so there is no hardship on your pocket to attend the Assessment Centre.
We’ll send you an itinerary with further information for your half day before you arrive for your Assessment Centre, so you’ll know what to expect.
The scholarship interviews are the same as the Assessment Centre for graduate candidates (see above). The selected candidates will receive a $10,000 scholarship and graduate position.
The number of positions offered for the graduate and summer programmes differ each year, depending on a variety of factors. Usually the Reserve Bank offers around 10-12 graduate positions and 6-10 summer intern positions.
The number of positions offered for the Reserve Bank scholarship is usually 2-3 positions and 1-2 Maori & Pacific Islands scholarships.
After the Assessment Centre, a group of our people will get together for an in-depth discussion about how it all went. We look at each candidate’s assessment results and how well you would fit in with our team. We also consider which area(s) of the Reserve Bank each candidate has the skills for and, of course, the area that each candidate is interested in.
From here we update all candidates and you’ll be told if we are progressing you to the final stage which is for us to complete reference and background checks.
