The SAB graduate program is one of the ways in which SAB contributes to the development of talent in South Africa. SAB runs an annual graduate acquisition process which culminates in the appointment of high calibre talent into a number of graduate development programs across the business value chain.

A SAB graduate programme is a structured 18-24 month programme which is designed to address the acquisition of technical skills and experience for a graduate as well as familiarise the trainee with the SAB philosophies. The rigour of the programme should ensure that an individual that has completed the programme can be allocated an area of responsibility immediately.

Graduate intake at SAB is impacted by a number of variables which include both the South African skills market and the business’ skills needs.

Applications for the 2013 graduate in-take are open in the following business areas:
