Former graduate Mandy Moloi had this to say about the graduate programme:

Marketing Assistant
When I started as a graduate at Computershare I knew nothing about the business but as the years have gone by I am proud of how much I have learnt and developed as an individual. There are many learning experiences throughout the business, so it excites me when I get involved with projects that help further expand my knowledge about new developments and how to make Computershare more accessible to the public. Thanks to new advancements in technology and social media the business has received a face lift that will help to keep us in tune with the rest of the world and with the latest trends.
I’ve seen many friends come and go, with new faces gracing the different departments but I know I’ve forged friendships with some of my colleagues that will last a life time. I look forward to the many new challenges that lie ahead.
