We offer a diverse range of graduate training programmes across our business, from engineering and natural sciences, to commerce and technology. These programmes are designed to meet the unique requirements and work we do, in different parts of the world and in our different businesses. The programmes vary in each country and each business unit.
Our flagship graduate programme for our Corporate Office in Johannesburg is called BLAST, which stands for Building Leaders and Shaping Talent. It aims to attract the best and brightest young talent exiting university. The roles are carefully selected to ensure the BLASTer has the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and experience which will equip them to be part of the Emerging Talent population in the company. The BLAST Programme offers university graduates the opportunity of having three real roles across two continents over four years.
Typically a career path on BLAST would initially be a role in South Africa, very closely aligned to the BLASTer’s field of study. This role could also be part of requisite training to achieve a professional qualification for example Government Certificate of Competency, Mine Manager Certificate or Chartered Account. This could take longer than 18 months. The second role is selected to gain additional experience, often closely aligned to the BLASTer's chosen discipline but will broaden their knowledge and skills. This is usually the international assignment. The last role is selected to ensure the BLASTer is well prepared for a role post the BLAST programme where they will be placed within the business.
