    Vodacom honoured at the SAGEA Graduate Employer awards

    Vodacom named Top Graduate Employer of Choice in Telecoms for the second year running.

    Vodacom has once again been voted the Top Graduate Employer of Choice in the Telecoms space at this years SAGEA Employer Awards 2017. The honour comes in recognition of the highly successful Vodacom Graduate Programme, which seeks to attract and nurture young talent coming out of universities across South Africa.

    For the past year Vodacom has recruited 70 graduates across South Africa and a further 58 across their International operations (which include Lesotho, Tanzania and the DRC). Of the 70 South African graduates recruited, 55% are females and 69% are black Africans.

    The SAGEA Employer Awards

    The SAGEA Employer Awards celebrate the achievements of South Africa’s leading graduate employers. The awards are decided entirely by successful job hunters, who have received confirmed job offers from graduate employers.

    Launched in 2010, the survey is conducted on an annual basis to help SAGEA members to review the success of their graduate campaigns and help plan their future recruitment programmes. Each participant was asked to name up to two organisations whom they felt had the best graduate programme in specific sectors or industry groups with which they were familiar. There were no lists of organisations to choose from – their responses were entirely unprompted – to help ensure that no preconceptions or assumptions were made regarding a predefined group of employers which candidates may associate with specific sectors.
