This hands-on training approach helps trainees acquire the required skills and knowledge, which is essential for becoming successful accountant. The SAICA Trainee Accountant Program aims to groom young professionals to be industry leaders and shape the future of the accounting industry in South Africa. Applications for this program are now open, so if you’re interested in pursuing a career in the accounting field, this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss!

To ensure your growth, we offer a comprehensive training program that includes both technical and soft skill training, which will form the backbone of your day-to-day job.

We understand that our trainees are the future leaders of our organization. Therefore, our Executive Committee (Exco) takes pride in supporting and nurturing your growth. To facilitate this, we organize quarterly Trainee engagement sessions where you’ll have the opportunity to network with the Leadership of the Bank. Furthermore, our association with the Gen A program will provide ample networking opportunities across the Bank at all levels.
