The YES Programme is a business-led collaboration with government to reduce unemployment by giving our youth an opportunity to develop new skills and gain meaningful workplace experience, which will improve their chances of finding long-term future employment significantly. A pivotal advantage of engaging in a YES program lies in the hands-on experience it offers. Participants immerse themselves in authentic work environments, acquiring practical skills and knowledge directly applicable to their forthcoming careers. This hands-on exposure proves invaluable in establishing a robust foundation for professional advancement, thereby increasing the potential for securing employment in the future.

Furthermore, membership in a YES program opens the door to exposure in one of the largest financial services institutes. This exposure grants participants a distinctive understanding of the industry, allowing them to glean insights from seasoned professionals. The accompanying networking opportunities can be advantageous for expanding one’s professional connections within the field, further contributing to increased job prospects.

Active involvement in a YES program not only provides experience but also opens doors to potential permanent employment opportunities. Demonstrating exemplary performance and maintaining a positive attitude are essential, as individuals may be considered for permanent roles within the organization, offering stability and long-term career prospects.

It is crucial to recognize that participants in a YES program receive a stipend rather than a conventional wage. This stipend, designed to cover basic transportation costs, serves as a practical support during their program engagement. While the stipend may only address fundamental transportation needs, the overall benefits and prospects for professional advancement, coupled with exposure in a leading financial services institute, make it a worthwhile opportunity for motivated individuals with a positive outlook.

The following criteria and qualifications must be met in order to be considered:

  • Matric qualification
  • Bachelor’s degree in Commerce, OR Engineering OR IT                                      
  • Postgraduate Diploma in Banking OR IT
  • NQF 5 Insurance Certification.
  • Must be currently unemployed.
  • Will not be enrolled in academic studies for the duration of the YES programme.
  • Have not participated in another YES programme with another organisation before.
