After a successful 2013 Graduate Program, where Graduates quickly became colleagues and family, Mimecast is excited to be launching the next program for 2014!
If you wish to be part of a company, where you won’t just be a number and truly obtain hands on experience in your field of study, Mimecast is the place for you to get a head start in your career.
Mimecast is offering bright and ambitious graduates the opportunity to get ahead by providing you with scarce skills and cutting edge cloud technology experience from South Africa’s number one international cloud services vendor. If this is you… have a look at the current positions we have open!
Not many people can say that they work for a business that has achieved such staggering year on year growth as well as so many prestigious industry awards which highlight and recognize this growth as well as Mimecasts’ stability and forward thinking approach to email. Some of the most recent awards include being listed as the Highest Market Share Growth Archiving Vendor by the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, Gartner, Messaging Product of the Year for 2012, a ranking of 20th and 7th in the 2012 and 2011 Fastest Growing Technology Company in the UK as well as Microsoft Gold Partner status for the 6th year in a row. We also thought you would like to know that Mimecast appeared on the Tech Track 100 country’s fastest growing technology firms, securing 79th place with a 47% growth–Mimecast has also been listed this year as the 12th largest firm (we have been ranked for four consecutive years now.)

We understand that success is built on our people and therefore we take hiring very seriously. Only people that represent our passion, energy and commitment to the big picture will be considered for a rare spot in this company that is genuinely going somewhere and fast.
To ensure continued accelerated growth we are looking for brilliant graduates to join our super charged team where your energy and commitment will have a direct effect on your personal and professional growth within Mimecast and beyond. To be successful, you need to be excited by the opportunity to practically apply what you have learnt throughout your studies and as well as by the opportunity to continually stretch and learn. Mimecast is not a large corporate with thousands of employees so you will not be ‘a number’, but with that comes greater responsibility and commitment. Be ready to operate at full capacity!
The Mimecast Graduate Program
Commencing in February 2014 and extending 12 months the Mimecast Graduate Program aims to provide young and talented graduates with an opportunity to receive the best start in their careers in one of the most progressive Cloud technology companies in the country.
We are looking for an ambitious, go-getter, who wants to hit the ground running and learn the ins and outs of their prospective future careers by giving them a hand’s on approach. With 10% of our work force being part of our Graduate Program, this is a great opportunity to develop yourself with scarce skills in the world of Technology!
During the course of the 12 month program you will focus initially on core skills training to develop the personal and professional skills needed to establish yourself within the Mimecast community. Thereafter, you will progress into our Sales division, where you will have a dedicated mentor, ready to groom and guide you in your first working experience.
For individuals that excel at the program and embrace the Mimecast way and culture the program may just be the start of a long and rewarding career at Mimecast and the world of information banking. Should graduates complete the program and not be successful in securing employment in your chosen specialization within Mimecast we will be able to refer you to a number of our reseller partners and alliances provided you have scored well in your assessments throughout the program.
