SUBANG JAYA, 13 May 2020 – Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) is calling for digitally-savvy and innovative young Malaysians to join its exclusive annual CXO Apprentice Programme.
Now in its fifth year, the programme is designed to inspire the next generation of leaders by empowering them with a unique and transformative experience of being mentored directly by Chief Officers (CXOs).
A handful of young Malaysians will be selected to be tagged as an Apprentice to one of Digi’s eight CXOs for a year, namely the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Technology Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, Chief Business Officer, Chief Corporate Affairs Officer, Chief Human Resource Officer and Chief Digital Officer.
Throughout the programme, the Apprentices will get unprecedented exposure as they shadow and are mentored by the CXOs, having front-row seats to high-level decision-making.
Along with it will be plenty of opportunities to participate in high-impact projects across different business areas, providing them an accelerated journey of learning and personal growth, as well as an in-depth understanding of Digi’s purpose, strategy and way of work. Upon completion of the programme,
Apprentices can look forward to getting a placement within the company based on their interests, skills and expertise.
Elisabeth Stene, Digi’s Chief Human Resource Officer said that beyond the mentorship, the Apprentices will also get to experience hands-on how Digi practices agile way of working and cultivates a customer-obsessed culture that drives Digi to continuously innovate.
The Apprentices will be selected via a robust digital-based assessment process, including the first virtual assessment centre.
The new virtual assessment tools are designed to incorporate elements of teamwork and competition to bring out different strengths of the candidates, while also giving them the platform to showcase what they can do independently.
The comprehensive assessment process aims to evaluate a candidate’s interpersonal skills, personality and cognitive abilities, which will then help the recruiters in assigning them to the right mentor and projects based on their strengths.
Digi welcomes individuals from all backgrounds and degrees, as the company believes in having diversity of thoughts within its workforce, in order to address the needs of its diverse 11 million customer base.
Applications for 2020 are now open and will close by 7 June 2020. Starting from June, shortlisted candidates will be invited to participate in a comprehensive online assessment and in live video interviews. The Apprentices will be selected by end-July and begin apprenticeship in September.
