Shoprite Holdings awards bursary

The Shoprite Holdings bursary aims at attracting and funding future Trainee Retail Managers who want to follow an exciting management career at the largest retailer in Africa.

The funding is a steppingstone into the company and guarantees candidate’s employment upon the successful completion of their course.

After undergoing a rigorous selection process, three SPU students were invited for face-to-face interviews. Of the three, Ms Nozuko Pike was the only successful candidate for the first intake of 2020.

“I’m honoured to be granted the Shoprite bursary for 2020. The bursary provides me an opportunity to complete my studies, and to immerse myself fully in them without worrying about financial constraints.”

“I am excited that upon completion of my studies, I am guaranteed permanent employment with Shoprite and will apply the theory learned in class practically. I am certainly looking forward to the future with the biggest retailer in Africa,” said Ms Pike.

Ms Pike is the tenth SPU student to be funded by Shoprite Holdings. This indicates that Shoprite Holdings has recognised SPU as an institution of choice to fund and employ students studying for the Diploma in Retail Business Management.
