mining Indaba® Young Leaders Career Development Programme

Attracting the right skill set to the mining sector has never been more difficult. As the mining industry evolves with the latest cycle and pushes to remain a competitive industry on the international stage, the skills and required experiences of graduates entering the sector are also changing. In order to meet these new challenges, Mining Indaba 2016 is launching an opportunity for mining companies, students and graduates to interact on the Thursday morning of the Indaba. The exhibition floor will host a number of HR representatives from the leading players in Africa’s mining sector and a parallel careers workshop will also take place within the convention centre. The workshop aims to be highly interactive with plenty of opportunity for students and recent graduates to discuss career prospects within the sector.

Criteria for Participation:

  • Current Masters student or recent graduate (having graduated in December 2013 or later), who has yet to find permanent employment in the mining sector
  • Demonstrated an interest in working within the mining sector
  • Curriculum Vitae (CV) and outline of employment to date
  • Certificate indicating completion of university OR proof of student ID required if you are a current student.
