Propelled by the desire to develop highly competent professionals, the PIC annually embarks on a journey in search of young talent from South Africa’s prestigious universities.
PICeeds is a programme driven by PIC business. The aim is to provide students with an opportunity to gain experience and to grow, develop skills and nurture their ability to gain a competitive advantage in an asset management environment.
We are looking for graduates/internships, who are self-motivated, achievement- driven and flexible; students who are able to think on their feet in a fast changing world, have great team-working skills and are passionate about what they do. An excellent track record and the desire to build a fruitful career in the asset management industry is another quality PIC seeks.
PIC hopes to bring some new PICeeds into the family and successfully nurture them for 2018.
