After applications close in March 2021, 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 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.
Our assessors / interviewers will get together for an in-depth discussion about all assessment results for each candidate. We also look at the alignment of indicated interest areas with skills and studies.
From here we update everyone as quickly as possible to confirm who is being progressed to the final stage which is reference and background checking.
