Citi’s Middle East and Africa regional business is looking for full-time Analysts to join the team in various locations across the region.
The Analyst Programme begins in August with a 4-week training Programme in Johannesburg. Formal training begins with an orientation and induction sessions providing an overview of Citi, followed by classroom training sessions. Analysts have the opportunity to meet representatives from the teams that make up the Banking, TTS, Operations and Risk divisions.
The classroom training program is followed by 4 x 3-month rotations across various functions of Citi, including Treasury and Trade Solutions, Corporate Bank and Operations. In some countries analysts have a rotation in Risk, in others this will be replaced with another business area.
We provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to succeed.
During your training program in Johannesburg you will receive an in-depth education on a variety of topics to learn the fundamentals of the Analyst role and introduce you to Citi’s culture.
