The scarcity of talent in South Africa and around the world makes it extremely important for Sasol to ensure continuous skills training to stimulate our growth. Sasol programs for South African youth are a critical source of talent, enabling us to achieve our talent transformation goals.
Sasol has a market reputation as an employer of choice and has been named the favorite employer in the chemical and energy sector by graduates of SAGEA’s five-year research study.
So far, Sasol has a variety of programs for the development of students and graduates.
South African bursary scheme
The Sasol bursary program includes an extensive package that includes funding and ongoing support during the study period. The bursaries offered are full-time university courses in engineering and science. Once the study period is over, students can be recruited from the Sasol group via our postgraduate program. The Sasol bursary program consists of:
Postgraduate Bursaries – For students who want to pursue a bachelor’s degree in engineering or science, this degree places honors degrees in our context.
University of Technology Bursaries – for students who hold a diploma or B Eng. Degrees of Tech University of Technology.
Postgraduate Bursaries – Designed for candidates who have both degrees or completed degrees, wish to pursue a master’s or doctoral degree in science or engineering.
Sasol Foundation Bursary Program
The Sasol Foundation offers scholarships for all talented people who plan to study for a full diploma or diploma to practice STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and non-STEM careers. This scholarship is offered to students who want to study technology and health sciences, among others.
Sasol Postgraduate Development Program
The Sasol Graduate Development Program is a fundraising program that ensures that all graduates in the various fields meet the same high standards of education, training, development and exposure to business processes. This program is designed for our Engineer / Scientist in Trainee Training. Sasol offers postgraduate students a 36-month long-term development program comparable to one of the best in the country.
Sasol holiday activity
Sasol provides students with access to practical knowledge relevant to their field of study, as required by the tertiary institution to complete a postgraduate degree. These are opportunities for holiday work that extend from December to January every year.
The Sasol YES program
The JA program is a business-led partnership. YES aims to reduce youth unemployment in the private and public sectors. The goal is to enable more young people to develop new skills and gain appropriate work experience, which will greatly improve their chances of finding a long-term job.
In Sasol, more than 400 young people who were previously unemployed offered access to work experience through the Sasol YES program.
If you have the resources you need to be part of this fun group, Sasol’s youth programs in South Africa are ready to change your life.
Note: Sasol’s bursary applications for South Africa are currently open and close on 30 April 2020 for the 2021 academic year.
