Management Traineeship Program
The management traineeship program in Africa was originated in 2010 to ensure that we have a supply of quality local talent to fill our future management positions in the markets where we operate. The aim is to recruit around 5 graduates each year and to put them through a two year development program within the Africa region before they return to their first management position in their home market.
The program is essential to allow us to fill our talent pipeline with high quality individuals with the right attitude who wish to pursue a career within an international company.
