FNB is part of the FirstRand Banking group and is the oldest bank in South Africa, formed in Grahamstown in 1838. As a financial institution, FNB provides personal, private, business, commercial and corporate banking services to millions of customers across South Africa.

FNB is no ordinary bank, we’re also a Telco and Insurer and we never stop asking what next? We hire extraordinary people who are curious, courageous and innovative to work on revolutionary and innovative solutions which help our customers.

As a bank founded by entrepreneurs, we subscribe to an “owner manager” culture. This means that the leaders of our smaller, more agile groups of businesses can be more competitive, flexible and collaborative. We have an entrepreneurial drive to action that is conducive for our people to have space to make a difference, work that is challenging, opportunities to innovate and working conditions that are flexible.

A career at FNB allows you to make a difference – by giving you the freedom to think creatively. It’s a career that lets you shape our organisation, our industry, and even the world.  It is rewarding as it is challenging. Or that is so rewarding because it is challenging. Which means it’s also a career that inspires spectacular growth. By joining FNB, you’re provided with an opportunity to innovate in an environment where you’re empowered to create and implement ground breaking ideas that generate real business benefits.

We hire and develop students to join teams of IT specialists, engineers, finance and accounting gurus, actuaries and statisticians, risk specialists.

At FNB, our unique, collaborative culture is a first. Our game changing thinking is a first. As Africa’s Coolest Bank, for the eighth year running, we’re making moves to build new solutions that build a better future. Which is why we need the most switched on minds when it comes to managing, organising, defining, maintaining and enhancing business performance and efficiencies.

We believe in growing future leaders for South Africa, which begins with growing our brightest young minds. The reality is that there are many strong academic students who show the greatest potential and dedication, but have very limited financial resources. Which is why we’ve established the FNB Bursary Programme for top-class students who need funding to complete their commerce and science degrees.

We believe in investing in you, without any expectation of you working back or paying back the funds. It’s another way in which we’re committed to helping to create a better world. Because a better world needs better leaders.
