Application Process

You need to know that ABSA learnership online application process is generally open during the year – and it is accessible through different websites, besides the official site. In general cases, applicants would have to apply, complete the online assessment, and agree to the interview. The assessment itself may take around 30 minutes.

When you are filling in the application form, don’t forget to provide the information of your contact detail, name, education, contactable recommendations, and work experience. You are likely going to be asked to upload your CV with the supporting documents.

Afterwards, you need to fill in the online assessment. This is only done when the screening board has reviewed your application and they think you have the potential. When they think that you meet the criteria and you have the potential, they will send you notification via the email. They will send the link (for the assessment) that you should do. Each of the assessments would measure your skill and abilities. If the screening board doesn’t see any potential in your application, you may not get the notification – and you won’t proceed to the assessment stage.

If you pass this stage, you will be required to take an interview via phone. Later, a physical interview will follow. And the process has completed. After the physical interview, someone from the company will contact you – it takes place 5 business days, the most.ABSA learnership programs
