Advancing talent

We are proud to have launched our Safire Learnership programme, which focuses on advancing bright young stars at Safire. The first applicants, who were chosen after a rigorous selection process, are (from left to right): Nqobile Mntungwa, Smangele Mbuli, Sinenhlanhla Mngadi, Londiwe Ndawonde, Nhlonipho Mchunu and Gugulethu Dlamini. All have tertiary qualifications and most are newly graduated from university with qualifications in Finance or Law. They will be completing a FETC in Short-term Insurance and undertaking in-house training on, for example, Underwriting and Claims processes, to ensure that they become highly skilled individuals in the short-term insurance industry. ‘We are delighted to add the Learnership programme to our various social development projects,’ says Safire CEO Pierre Bekker. ‘It offers talented young graduates an opportunity to gain hands-on experience of the insurance sector, and adds sharp, energetic minds to our highly professional team.’
