Propelled by the desire to develop highly competent professionals, the Public Investment Corporation (PIC) annually embarks on a journey in search of young talent from South Africa’s prestigious universities.
The PIC is looking for graduates/interns, who are self-motivated, achievement- driven and flexible; students who are able to think on their feet in a fast changing world, have great team-working skills and are passionate about what they do. An excellent track record and the desire to build a fruitful career in the asset management industry is another quality PIC seeks.
PIC offers a competitively valued three year CA Training Programme (registered with SAICA), a two year Graduate Programme (specialising in Investment Management) and a two year Internship Programme (specialising in Operational areas).
Established in 1911, the PIC (SOC) Limited is one of the largest investment managers in Africa today, managing assets of over R1.4 trillion and still growing. The PIC, a registered financial services provider, is wholly owned by the South African Government, with the Minister of Finance as shareholder representative. The company invests funds on behalf of public sector entities, based on investment mandates set by each of these clients and approved by the Financial Services Board (FSB).
