What you will learn
Graduates rotate through all areas of the business, receiving invaluable on-the-job training and a holistic understanding of Dimension Data – the type of real world business experience that cannot be matched by theoretical classroom learning.
Graduates are assigned a buddy to shadow in addition to receiving tasks to complete in line with the specific area of the business on which they are focusing. In groups, they are also required to tackle a strategic business challenge, and present their findings to the business at the end of the rotation.
In order to transition effectively from student to employee, emphasis is placed on providing necessary soft skills and business effectiveness skills.
The Graduate Accelerate Programme is a two-year, commercially focused permanent employment programme. The first year is an intensive year in which the graduates are exposed to all areas of the business with sponsorship at an executive level and involvement and support from the broader leadership team.
The graduates are assigned a mentor from our leadership pool. The mentor exposes the graduate to networking opportunities and provides support throughout their first year.
In the second year the graduates are placed in a business area in line with their preference, capability and business capacity.
They continue to receive mentorship, coaching and online-learning material and support, but are expected to function more independently.
