Sahara Group empowers young professionals
Sahara Group says it is consistently driven by its dynamism, which offers its people the greatest opportunities for professional development and personal actualisation.
In a statement on Monday, the energy company said: “We believe in the power of the first STEP and we walk beside you as that step becomes a journey. We provide a blank canvas and our people paint away with deliberate, disruptive and strategic strokes to produce excellent outcomes.
“Now, young graduates have an opportunity to take that STEP with the Sahara Talent Entrepreneurship Programme (STEP) – a platform designed for sourcing and empowering young professionals to grow their expertise in a foremost energy conglomerate with operations in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.”
STEP , according to the Group, seeks to develop entrepreneurship leadership skills of young talent, improve their business acumen, strategic thinking and relationship management abilities which are required to support growth strategies within the group.
The one-year program is systematically structured to expose participants with entrepreneurial mindsets to all the diverse areas of the business.
The development programme, it said, would include two or three rotations that combine on-the-job learning with formal training opportunities blended with foundational skill training; in-house classroom training; feedback sessions; hands-on projects; coaching and mentoring opportunities. Candidates will be given stimulating hands-on roles, and have the opportunity to not only understand the culture and core values of the company but to live by them.
