ArcelorMittal is one of the largest steel companies in the world and it is based in South Africa. It offers gifted individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds a chance to learn and expand their knowledge while also gaining valuable hands-on knowledge in their field.
There are a couple of programs such as the graduate or apprenticeship programs, as well as a metal production learnership.
To qualify for a learnership at ArcelorMittal, candidates must:
- be a South Africa citizen
- hold a valid Grade 12 / Matric certification
- have had science, mathematics, and English as subject and passed them with above a 50% understanding
Note that there may be more requirements depending on the position you are applying for.
ArcelorMittal's online applications become available once their programs open so register online and upload your CV on their Careers Page to be notified once applications open.
For more information on their learnership program, visit their ArcelorMittal website.
Candidates wishing to apply to any of their programs must ensure they are fully prepared and have all the required documentation at hand.
Each program has a different closing date which is only made available once applications open. That’s why it’s best to register on their site and regularly check to see if their programs have opened.
Most of their programs open and close during the first quarter of the year, usually between January and July.
The program runs for 40 weeks and includes all training fees and also a monthly allowance for successful candidates. Some candidates may also be offered a full-time position upon completion of this learnership; however, it will depend on the need of the company at the time of completion.
