SovTech Graduate Programme
The SovTech Graduate Programme is a paid, non-linear learning opportunity and will not take a typical academic approach. It is geared toward young professionals (preferably with a qualification or studying towards one) who are entering the industry for the first time and is driven by mentorship, on-the-job experience, and engagement with professionals who have years of experience across Software & Business Development. The programme duration is 6 months with the possibility of full-time employment, should the graduate prove to match our standards of excellence.There is a vast shortage of skilled candidates with adequate work experience in South Africa and we are doing our part to help bridge that gap. This programme will focus on developing technology skills such as coding, data analytics and software or application development, as well as soft skills such as problem-solving, creativity and communication skills.
What is the SovTech Graduate Programme?
Our Graduate Programme will take place over 6 months. We are searching high and low for 10 passionate, ambitious, recently graduated individuals that see themselves growing within the Tech space within the two below career paths:
- Software Engineering (Blockchain/Web3)
- Business Development (while important, we don’t solely look at academic results for consideration to join the programme)
“We are looking for candidates who are keen on innovation, possess great people and communication skills and show potential in business acumen that resonates with the SovTech culture”, says Gerald Neves, SovTech CEO.
The graduates will be appointed discipline-specific mentors to ensure their development in all required proficiencies during the length of the programme. In some cases, the students will go through a rotational setup thereby wearing many hats during their tenure at the company. There will be a continuous evaluation of their performance as they go through the programme. This programme will be a practical, mentored, hands-on first-job environment where we hope to teach the selected graduates the foundations of the tech industry and how to effectively grow and use their skills. We believe that it is our responsibility as a longstanding industry player, to find and grow talent and that a graduate programme of this nature is a solid foundation that is needed in the country.
What we are looking for:
- You are a recent graduate, passionate about Technology and eager to be a part of a dynamic, growing company
- You must be based in Johannesburg or Cape Town
- You are self-organised, a good communicator and you feel aligned with our company values below
- You are driven and eager to learn
- You are able to commit to a 6 month Graduate Programme
Benefits of the graduate programme:
- Mentor support for the duration of the programme
- Project diversity and the opportunity to take on real responsibility
- Potential job placements after the programme ends
- Continued support
What training can I expect?
We are looking to fill our graduate programme with candidates we can develop as future leaders of the business and industry altogether. The training you receive will well be structured, industry-specific, and include plenty of one-on-one mentoring. We have an open culture and you will have access to management and executive staff, their knowledge, as well as the opportunity to network with internal and external stakeholders which is invaluable. The programme will include professional development opportunities not limited to your specific discipline. This graduate programme isn’t just about training and isn’t an internship. You will be given the same responsibilities and opportunities to showcase your work as other full-time staff members – maybe even more if you are training for management positions.
