Here’s what they had to say:
Senior Corporate Finance Adviser
Sanlam’s Group Office
"Sanlam’s approach to employee development has given me the confidence to broaden my abilities. The company offers a wide spectrum of training opportunities. For example, I have been sent on courses such as a management development programme through Stellenbosch University, and I attended training at the INSEAD Business School in Paris."
Sanlam Personal Finance
"I have a highly responsible role within the company at the relatively young age of 27. Sanlam has given me freedom to grow into this role. I love the fact that I work with incredibly knowledgeable and inspiring people, and I learn something new every day."
Junior Credit Analyst
Sanlam Capital Markets
"My engagement with the company started when I was awarded a Sanlam bursary during my second year of studying for my bachelor’s degree in mathematics and statistics at the University of the Western Cape. At 25, I am the youngest member of my team, but I found that my colleagues were very willing to mentor and train me."
Mergers & Acquisitions, Emerging Markets
"The sheer size of the company and the wide range of business units within Sanlam make the Group an exciting and challenging place to work. There are numerous opportunities for career progression within the Group, and this is probably the reason I have worked for Sanlam for longer than any other company. The broad range of opportunities available is very exciting; and there are always new areas where you can challenge yourself."
Third-year CA traineeGroup Finance
"The Sanlam CA and Graduate Development Programmes offer an amazing cultural diversity and a workplace environment that fosters career growth opportunities and self-development. Sanlam as an employer merges the changing needs of the employee with those of the company. This results in high performance from the employees, who are then handsomely rewarded."
