About the Job:
Each year, we strive to recruit and invest in academics who are motivated and enthusiastic about joining our firm. We recruit new graduates for most permanent positions on the first day. We have a four-week mandatory orientation. After orientation, the graduates are taken through the Allan Gray academy, which is an ‘incubated’ functional training environment. This lasts for a period of three to six months, depending on the role. The result: graduates in real roles, taking their first steps towards achieving their long-term ambitions.

Our commitment to long-term investing extends to our people, our greatest assets. We understand that even the smartest investment philosophy means nothing without the talent to execute it and serve our clients.
This is why we are looking for high-performing, independent-minded academic achievers who are motivated and enthusiastic about joining our firm. We take great pride in our people and have created a supportive work environment that nurtures talent, and recognises and rewards hard work and perseverance.
