New Digicel programme builds careers

Digicel Group is looking for creative problem solvers, with a knack for solutions-oriented thinking to participate in the first cohort of the Digicel Graduate Programme — two-year training to develop the next generation of inspiring and innovative leaders.

The programme aims to provide global tertiary graduates access to some of the brightest minds in the industry.

Graduates will build careers by developing digital mindsets, technical knowledge, business acumen, commercial “savviness” and leadership skills through a combination of real world, on-the-job experience, professional development, networking and mentorship.

“We are thrilled to be launching this exciting programme and look forward to welcoming this group of the brightest and the best graduates into the business,” Digicel Group chief executive officer Oliver Coughlan said.

“Digicel is such a unique place, and the people who thrive here go on to lead in Digicel markets and other top companies across the globe, especially in the world of digital and telecoms. This is what we like to call the Digicel DNA, and through this programme we plan to hone this quality in our new graduates.”

Through rotations over the two-year programme, graduates will spend time in Digicel markets working alongside their experts across multiple disciplines and levels; interacting with the board; taking part in networking activities and professional courses as well as receiving mentorship and career development guidance throughout.

“When Digicel began in Jamaica in 2001, it was the start of our journey to democratise communications for millions, and with our relaunch as a digital operator in 2020 we cemented our place in history as the first in our markets, and only second in the world, to achieve this transition successfully,” Mr Coughlan said. “We are looking for future leaders, for out-of-the-box thinkers, for innovators who are ready and willing to change the game when it comes to the intersection of digital and telecoms.”

The deadline for applications is January 31, and candidates must have graduated with a bachelor’s or master’s degree in a business-related discipline. Candidates will also need to be fluent in English and available to start on April 4.
