EXPECTATIONS OF AN APPRENTICE

- They must be able to travel at short notice.
- They are expected to match the working habits of their mentor. This is likely to result in extended working hours.
- Apprentices will be based in the office of their mentor on and seconded on specific projects. Apprentices may be expected to do relief management on a short notice basis.
- Each project will have a brief as well as target dates and would be evaluated on a project-to-project basis.

- Apprentices would be allocated custodianships of certain brands, projects and/or departments.
- At the end of the apprenticeship, you will be required to present a record of the projects you have completed. This will be evaluated and taken into consideration when discussing the possibility of a permanent position the following year.
- Throwing you in the deep end should never be deep enough for you.
- The proposed monthly remuneration for an apprentice is a package potential of up to R15 000 per month. The package potential may include a data allowance, device allowance and travel allowance for basic planned travel.
