Working at DirectAxis

Our Graduate Programme

people education graduation

We are always on the lookout for graduates who think differently, question assumptions, think analytically and have a desire to create better and more satisfying experiences for our customers.

Our aim is to develop young, inexperienced talent and place them into key positions in our working environment. We hire graduates in the following specialist fields – Analytics, IT, Legal, Risk and Finance.

People who are forward thinking and want to grow and gain experience are the most successful. This program is an important source of leadership talent and some of our most senior leaders started at DirectAxis as graduates.

Graduates journey

During the first 12 weeks, graduates move around key business areas, and observe and complete assessments. They are exposed to our business in different ways so that they have a general understanding of how we operate.

Various exposure mechanisms include:

  • Facilitated workshops
  • Self-directed learning
  • Coaching groups
  • Business assignments/Project Line Support --Internal coaching from business leaders
  • Exposure to business leaders

For the remainder of their time with us, a personalised developmental plan is designed and they are closely supervised with guidance from their line manager. This ensures that they receive the relevant hands-on exposure they need to be successful within their designated department.

Our graduates love working here because:

  • They are given ownership from the moment they start as they are given cross functional projects.
  • They are given hands-on experience that lead to meaningful careers.
  • They enter our business on a junior management level.
  • They are permanently employed.
  • Each graduate is assigned a mentor to guide them on their career journey.
  • Training and development is provided for leadership roles.
  • They may receive opportunities to study further in their chosen field.
  • The sky’s the limit as they can grow and experience different roles if they wish to do so.

Like my mentor Mr Mohamed Mukadam (Head of IT) always says 'change is the only constant.' As the business world constantly evolves, the opportunities at DirectAxis are limitless. With the right attitude, innovative mind-set and curiosity, one can master/conquer the art of the corporate world within a short period of time.
I have gained lots of skills and experience and have learned so much since I have been here, both personally and professionally.
I have grown so much in such a short space of time - I started my career in IT operations, then went to System/Software development and now I’m in Business intelligence in the Management information systems (MIS) area. We help business executives make well-informed decisions by analysing data because “The data never lies”.
Being part of DirectAxis has really elevated me as a person and has given me great opportunities to grow.

DirectAxis has been an amazing jumpstart to my career. I joined in 2015 as a part of the graduate programme and I had no frame of reference of what the world of work really looked like. My experience thus far has been nothing short of extraordinary. I was recruited to join the Innovation space and I have since learned so much and grown in heaps and bounds, not only professionally but personally too. I have been afforded countless opportunities to prove and challenge myself almost daily. I am actively involved in stimulating projects where I feel my contributions are recognised and valued.
The drive and tenacity of our people and our shared vision and goals, makes me so excited for the future of DirectAxis. It really is an exciting company to be a part of.
