Careers

From the very beginning, investing in and developing talent and leadership has been one of our top priorities and that process is deeply embedded in our corporate culture. We place a strong emphasis on developing a deep bench-strength of managers and leaders. We understand that success stems from the ability of our people to execute our multiple growth initiatives, so our people are empowered to grow their careers across multiple businesses and geographies, maximising their learning and development from different roles and business contexts. This means each time a new business is started, a new geography is opened, or a new value chain initiative is developed, we are able to deploy a core team of leaders and managers who have the capabilities to spearhead the opportunity.
