Graduate Mentorship Programme
The Concor Graduate Mentorship Programme (GMP) is aimed at formalising and guiding the transfer of technical, leadership and management skills from mentors (experienced professionals within our business) to mentees (new graduates).
The GMP facilitates practical knowledge and skills transfer, in order to produce a steady pipeline of capable professionals who will contribute to the growth and success of the company, and the construction and mining sectors at large.
This programme also assists in the compilation of a substantial portfolio of evidence that would assist the mentee to register professionally with the relevant professional councils, either on completion of the GMP or during the course of their professional career.
Participation in the GMP is limited to Concor bursars that have completed construction-related studies. In some instances, participation in the GMP is open to external candidates that demonstrate excellent results, as well as passion and commitment to the Group and industry.
Ongoing Professional Development
All employees are encouraged and supported to undertake ongoing professional development. Priority programmes included skills development and training courses that will enhance existing performance and roles within the company. Employees are also encouraged to complete professional registration with accredited sector bodies.
