Careers, Bursaries and Graduate Opportunities


At the Shoprite Group, we know that our success is built on the hard work, passion and skills of our people.
It’s why we seek out individuals who share our vision of providing a first-world shopping experience across the African continent. And why we strive to create an inspiring work environment where you can grow your abilities, build your career and achieve great things.

We call this philosophy BeMore.

We believe that education is the key to a successful career. That’s why we offer a range of bursaries and graduate programmes to give you the skills and support you need to achieve your full potential. With over 310 bursaries to the value of almost R18 million awarded in 2015 alone and thousands of jobs created every year, it’s no wonder South African graduates voted Shoprite the number one retail industry employer of choice in that year.


If you’re young, ambitious and serious about your future, our bursary opportunities will set you on the path to success. We provide financial study assistance in the fields of accounting, pharmacy, logistics, IT, industrial engineering, marketing, hospitality, business management and more.  Enhance your education. 


As a graduate student, you have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience across a range of departments at Africa’s leading supermarket retailer. If you’re a talented graduate with a degree in B. Pharm, Retail Management, B.Compt/B.Acc or any other relevant field of study, we’d love to hear from you.  Kickstart your career. 


We offer a range of exciting career opportunities at our various divisional offices around Africa and the Head Office departments in Cape Town. A wide range of store-environment positions is also available in our national operations, including food, furniture and fast-food retailing.  Join our team!
