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.

This is a 12-month contract opportunity which offers a stipend of R4407 monthly. Upon completion you will also receive a certificate of completion and a reference letter for your future work 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.
