Due to the competitiveness of this program, the Bank will not accept any application submissions after the closing date of the Vacancy Announcement. In 2011, the Bank received well over 10,000 applications from potential candidates. Due to the volume of responses we receive, you may only receive an electronic confirmation of receipt. If you do not get a more formal correspondence from the Bank by June 2012, it will be a reasonable conclusion that you are not being considered for the 2012 program. Please do not contact the Bank or staff members to enquire about the status of your application.
