These are the South African companies students dream of working for


The South African Graduate Employers Association has announced the winners of its 2016 SAGEA Employer Awards, naming the most favoured companies by South African students across 24 sectors.

Launched in 2010, the survey is conducted on an annual basis to help SAGEA members to review the success of their graduate campaigns and help plan their future recruitment programmes.

Research for the 2016 list took place between March and May 2016, using an online questionnaire, drawing 2,052 candidate responses.

Each candidate was asked to name up to two organisations whom they felt had the best graduate programme in specific sectors or industry groups with which they were familiar.

There were no lists of organisations to choose from – their responses were entirely unprompted – to help ensure that no preconceptions or assumptions were made regarding a predefined group of employers which candidates may associate with specific sectors, SAGEA said.

In the accountancy sector, PwC gained a quarter of the vote, while Deloitte and KPMG were very closely placed in second and third positions.

Between them, Media24, SABC and MultiChoice gained more than half of the votes within the media sector. The retail sector was very closely fought, with few votes separating the top three employers, the group said.

“Three organisations secured first place in two different sectors: Sasol gained the most votes in both the chemical & pharmaceutical and engineering or industrial sectors, Unilever secured the FMCG and manufacturing sectors, while Discovery was in first place for both the health and insurance sectors,” the group said.

Here are the companies South African students chose as the best:
