Bureau for Economic Research (BER) Economist Internship Programme 2023 for South Africans
The BER Economist Internship Programme provides practical training to appropriately qualified previously disadvantaged individuals. The programme equips trainees to function as economists in the private and/or the public sector. The one-year programme affords candidates the opportunity to work alongside BER economists to gain experience in all aspects of business-oriented economic analysis. Since the inception of the programme in 2006, the BER has trained many economists, pursuing careers at South Africa’s leading financial institutions, the South African Reserve Bank, the National Treasury and other leading research institutes.
The primary objective of the internship programme is to provide practical training to appropriately qualified graduates so that they are able to function as economists in the private and/or public sector. The successful candidates will work alongside BER economists for one year to gain experience in all the aspects of business orientated macroeconomic analysis.
The successful candidates will be employed by the South African Reserve Bank, but will spend the first year of employment in training at the BER. (The recruits will receive a competitive salary, even during the internship year at the BER.)
Recruitment will take place during May and June 2022 and interviews will be held during July and August. The internship will start in January 2023 and end in December 2023.
