Graduate Jobs in South Africa

SAB Ltd employs more than 9,000 people, with 1 in 15 economically active citizen’s jobs depending on our operations. Our Beer Division delivers to 23 000 customers nationwide, while our Soft Drink Division services more than 40 000 direct and 1500 indirect active outlets. South African Breweries recruits Management Trainees


The Management trainee would shadow a Distribution Manager and Warehouse manager and basically learn the SAB way without having people or KPI accountabilities. The successful person will be involved in the entire value chain, understanding it from start to finish whilst simultaneously working on an identified project and progressing through structured development plan.  They are usually in the role for 8-12 months depending on their rate of learning and experience.

We want candidates that are able to fast track quickly to a senior level to fill whichever management vacancy avails itself at a time which is very much dependent on the successful candidate.
