Programme areas
Shari'ah Banking graduate programme

The Shari’ah compliant financial services industry is regarded as being the fastest growing sector in financial services globally, and is taking root across the African continent.  

In its simplest form, the Shari’ah economic system doesn’t recognise money as an asset, and therefore prohibits the paying or receiving of interest for the use of money.  

It also prohibits participation in speculative markets, which Shari’ah Law sees as tantamount to gambling. In addition, no investment or participation is allowed in industries like tobacco, alcohol, arms and weaponry.  

If you have an interest in this banking specialisation, then become part of this dynamic team as they grow the Shari’ah Banking solutions for customers across our segments and the geographies in which we operate.

Application process

We believe in making dreams possible and connecting the brightest talent to the meaningful opportunities they need to build their skills, ignite their ambitions, and get closer to their purpose.

Step 1: Apply online

Select apply now then go to first time visitor to create a new account and register your CV and upload documents, or go to returning visitor to sign in. Then complete the application to indicate the Early Careers Programme you’re interested in. Our Early Careers Programme team will review all applications then contact the most suitable candidates.

Step 2: Interviews

Once you’ve successfully passed the screening part of our process, we’ll invite you to a video interview for the programme you’ve selected.
In the event that your application is unsuccessful for your preferred programme, but you meet the criteria for another, we’ll invite you to a video interview for that programme.

Step 3: Assessments

If you’re successful at the interview stage, we’ll then ask you to take part in an assessment. Each assessment we run is individually linked to one of our Early Careers Programmes, but we’ll be sure to give you more information on what’s expected of you beforehand

Step 4: Offer/Decline

Although we’d like to be able to offer all the talented individuals who make an application a place, competition for spaces on our Early Career Programmes is often fierce. That’s why, post assessment stage, we’ll prioritise letting you know whether your application to join us has been successful or unsuccessful.
