Leading energy and infrastructure conglomerate, Sahara Group, has commenced a Graduate Management Trainee Program in Ghana to give young graduates in the nation an opportunity to make a difference in the oil and gas sector.
With focus on Sahara’s downstream operations in Ghana, the GMT program will offer successful applicants an opportunity to “upgrade their unique skills and ensure exposure to top-level responsibility early in their careers,” said Yvette Selormey, Managing Director, Sahara Downstream in Ghana.
“Sahara Group is renowned for transforming young talent into global icons in the energy sector and this is a platform specially designed for every young graduate in Ghana seeking to learn and grow within a work culture that encourages and rewards excellence,” she said.
Ghana’s downstream sector continues to experience significant growth as a result of the government’s strategic reforms, policies and investments. There are also increasing efforts by the government to boost the adoption of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) LPG as a cleaner fuel compared to biomass and kerosene. LPG consumption in Ghana for Q1 2022 stood at 101,362 MT and this is projected to quadruple by end of year. Sahara Group is expected to contribute significantly to the nation’s energy transition drive through continuing investments and the operations of LPG vessels, storage and distribution facilities associated with the energy conglomerate in Africa.
Selormey said the program would give individuals with good first degrees in applicable disciplines a secure shot at kick-starting their careers with world-class training modules, mentorship, and self-driven goals.
“Details of the application process which will run from June 20th to 3rd of July 2022 are available on all Sahara Group’s social media channels. We invite youths in Ghana to start their journey to making a difference by applying today,” she added.
According to Selormey, Sahara Group has operated as a foremost business in Ghana’s oil and gas sector for over 20 years, facilitating access to energy and contributing to economic growth and development.
She said: “So Energy, a Sahara Group downstream company in Ghana continues to raise the bar in the sector, leveraging innovativeness, top-notch quality and safety policies, good corporate citizenship, and a unique service experience. The So Energy brand is renowned for integrity, reliability, efficiency, and implementing sustainable interventions in health, education and capacity building.”
