Allan Gray aim to recruit and invest in academic achievers who are motivated and enthusiastic about joining our firm.
Unlike most companies, we do not run a ‘rotational’ graduate programme where the graduates rotate through the various departments in the business. We recruit recent graduates into permanent positions from day one.
There is no formal programme, other than the compulsory four-week orientation.
After orientation, the graduates are taken through the Allan Gray academy, which is an ‘incubated’ functional training environment.
This lasts for a period of three to six months, depending on the role.
The result: graduates in real roles, taking their first steps towards achieving their long-term ambitions.
Your key objectives will differ depending on which role you are offered. We are currently recruiting graduates for the following roles:
- Client Service Consultant
- Operations Consultant
- Trainee Business Analyst (Investment Team; Institutional Client Services; Product Development; Distribution; Information Systems)
- Junior Software Developer
- Junior Software Tester
- Trainee Portfolio Administrator
We are looking for focused final year students, completing a Bachelor’s degree, with excellent academic results in the following fields:
- Actuarial Science
- Business Science
- Information Systems
