If you dream of seeing your name in the spotlight, South Africa’s leading short-term insurance provider has an exciting initiative for aspiring future leaders.
The Santam Graduate Accelerate Programme (GAP) has been designed to offer graduates the opportunity to make the transition between university and the working world. The programme provides on-the-job work experience, combined with structured learning and development activities that will challenge graduates and develop high performing employees in order to build Santam’s future capability.
This opportunity is open to South African graduates and while a strong academic record is essential, we are also looking out for those individuals who show initiative and determination to be successful – the future “rock stars” of the business world. For Santam to ensure on-going success, it is critical that the best people are attracted and employed. This programme aims to acquire such talented individual who will ultimately provide our clients and intermediaries with outstanding service.
The programme seeks to recruit across diverse fields within business with a more specific focus on commerce, such as general management, finance, risk management and insurance related studies. However the discipline of study in which candidates have completed their qualifications must be in line with the scarce skills areas needed by the business and preference will be given to these qualifications.
We offer up to 24 months’ guidance and a variety of support mechanisms that include assistance from mentors, coaches, work buddies, fellow graduates and programme coordinators. Further to this there are additional core components that the graduates are exposed to including comprehensive orientation, off-the-job and on-the-job training, technical and professional development training, action learning initiatives and customised business management courses.
The search for the 2014, next generation of professionals has begun. Graduates who will live our values and who desire to make a difference are encouraged to apply to be part of the Santam GAP Programme which will commence in February 2014.
Applicant s would need to have completed a degree-level qualification or supply proof that a degree will be completed prior to the programme commencement date. Only applicants who meet the minimum criteria will be considered for the GAP Programme. In addition to receiving market related salaries, they may also be provided with assistance for their post graduate studies, which includes study leave as well as financial assistance. Successful candidates will be placed in either Cape Town or Johannesburg.
