Graduate Recruitment Programme at Allan Gray

Allan Gray invites applications from graduates for the 2018 Intake. Unlike most companies, Allan Gray does not run a ‘rotational’ graduate programme where the graduates rotate through the various departments in the business. They recruit recent graduates into permanent positions from day one. Successful candidates will be hired from 2 January 2019 and will be based at the Head Office in Cape Town.

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.

Allan Gray is an investment management firm, focused on creating financial security for investors. The company is headquartered in Silo One at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
