Graduate Jobs in South Africa

A progressive and flexible approach is adopted when it comes to employing graduates from diverse academic backgrounds. We require graduates/diplomats who not only have a good academic record, but also have the skills to be a successful trainee. We want and look for the very best. Interpersonal skills, merchant thinking, business understanding, analytical and interpretive skills, communication and organisational skills are a few of these key competencies.
The Grad Programme runs for about 18 months. Expect all the in-store training and business experience you will need to leap up the ladder of success. New recruits are given a personal mentor to guide them on their career path. You will be a permanent employee and can expect to get a similar salary to other market-related positions. In turn we expect outstanding performance.
