FNB announced in a press statement on Thursday that it is recruiting 300 experts with engineering, technology, data and quant skills.

The new staff being recruited will supplement its existing cohort of more than 5,000 equivalent skills, FNB stated.

FNB encouraged local talent that is overseas to consider returning for opportunities in domestic markets across the African continent.
