Young graduates invited to enter brewer’s recruitment drive

Home Business Management Education & Training Young graduates invited to enter brewer’s recruitment drive

THE South African Breweries (SAB) is excited to announce the first edition of the SAB Talent Challenge. The program seeks to turn traditional talent attraction practice on its head through this progressive challenge, as a recruitment tool. Participants will engage in a multi-phased journey solving real-life business problems. All young graduates between the ages of 18 – 30 years are invited to take up the challenge and apply.

The country is currently experiencing high levels of unemployment, which predominantly affects the youth. The StatsSA Quarterly Labour Force Survey from Q4 2023 indicates that over 44% or 4.7 million young people are unemployed. These numbers mean that many of the country’s young people do not receive the opportunity to realise their full potential in the job market, leaving many in a vulnerable material state. Through the programme, SAB offers young people an employment opportunity while immersing the selected participants in SAB’s business and culture. This immersive program is built to test the participants’ abilities to solve real and challenging business problems across commercial, supply chain, and technology categories. This journey will provide participants with networking opportunities and exposure to SAB’s senior leadership, where they will present their business challenge proposal during the Grand Final Interview.

“We are proud to announce the launch of the SAB Talent Challenge. It’s important that all public and private stakeholders play their part in investing in young talent,” said Bridget Makhura, vice president of people, SAB.  “The SAB Talent Challenge is our way of upskilling young people with soft and hard skills that will build their confidence and aid them in positioning and differentiating themselves in the job market. It will also empower them to navigate the country’s corporate landscape by exposing them to real-life business challenges.”

The candidates will undergo an assessment that will evaluate their abilities and behavioural styles. The selected participants will be placed into teams of three and assigned to different divisions before receiving a chosen business challenge. The team with the best solution will be invited to SAB’s offices where they will be given the opportunity to present to the company’s senior leadership. A selection of top-performing candidates will be given employment opportunities at SAB in one of the company’s graduate programs.

Applications are now open and will be accepted until 31 May 2024. The Talent Challenge hurdles will take place between 1 June and 31 July 2024, and the final Interview is scheduled for August 2024.
