Barclays has kicked off applications to its 2014 Pan Africa Graduate Development Programme (PAGDP) to attract, select and hire high calibre post graduates who will be exposed to technical, financial and professional training and mentoring on the African continent.

Since its inception in 2008, 645 graduates have been hired into the programme. PAGDP aims to provide a consistent talent pipeline to meet the demand for scarce and critical skills. The programme design is such that graduates are exposed to both on-the-job learning and behavioural competencies that are delivered through cross-border summits.

Graduates who meet the criteria are invited to apply for the programme. Applications close on 31 August 2013 for roles based in South Africa and 15 September 2013 for roles based in the rest of our African countries.

The programme commences in February 2014 with a two-week orientation in Johannesburg.

Graduates are the lifeblood of the economy. As an organisation that supports the development of young talent, we are striving to ensure that we play our part in helping you find your feet in the corporate world.
