Win­ner: In­dus­try best: Tele­coms ranked by en­gi­neer­ing stu­dents

Head of tal­ent ac­qui­si­tion and staffing at Telkom Wendy Pot­gi­eter says: “We be­lieve the en­gi­neer­ing stu­dents are look­ing at Telkom as the in­no­va­tor in the South African tele­coms land­scape. So we are able to of­fer them a uni­verse of op­por­tu­ni­ties within the ICT space and the plat­form to take their ca­reers to soar­ing heights.”

Says grad­u­ate devel­op­ment spe­cial­ist Michelle Ni­cholls: “As an em­ployer, Telkom has a very fo­cused, stream­lined bur­sary pro­gramme for stu­dents.”

Em­ployer brand­ing spe­cial­ist at Telkom Thamara Naicker says: “We are mov­ing into the strate­gic way of sourc­ing tal­ent. And one par­tic­u­lar way we have been lever­ag­ing on is our LinkedIn Ca­reers page. We have a strong pres­ence on LinkedIn, show­cas­ing the dif­fer­ent ca­reers ar­eas within Telkom and mar­ket­ing our unique em­ployee value propo­si­tion. We po­si­tion our­selves as One Telkom, a united team with a strong her­itage, clear val­ues and a com­pelling pur­pose, con­tribut­ing mean­ing­fully to our na­tion’s suc­cess.”

Telkom looks for in­di­vid­u­als with ex­pert, spe­cialised func­tional ex­pe­ri­ence to meet the job re­quire­ments. Although qual­i­fi­ca­tions are im­por­tant, the com­pany goes be­yond academia, and se­lect can­di­dates that are for­ward-think­ing, in­no­va­tive, so­lu­tion-ori­en­tated and that put the needs of the cus­tomer first. •••
