Graduate Recruitment Administrator at Truworths 2018

Truworths aims to be recognised as an employer of choice in fashion retailing and continues to invest in its people to ensure sustainable performance and business continuity.

The Group’s values define the way in which management interacts with employees and also guide human resource practices. These values are incorporated in everyday working life at Truworths, from recruitment to training and development, employee relations and recognition programmes. Through regular performance appraisals, management not only measures performance against goals, but also monitors how employees are acting in accordance with these values.

At Truworths, you'll find a dynamic business environment where our staff are constantly challenged to reinvent the way we do business in order to keep us at the forefront of the South African fashion industry.

Take a walk through our stores or offices and you'll encounter an infectious love of fashion and a tangible will to succeed among the people who make up our business – both of which are key to keeping us at least one step ahead of the competition.

‘I am totally committed to Truworths because I am always encouraged to offer innovative ideas which contribute to the ultimate purpose of Truworths. As a result Truworths is generous in recognising my role as an effective team member.’

In the words of our CEO, Michael Mark, "The theme is's all about fashion. This straightforward concept is a powerful reminder about what Truworths is all about – fashion." (Annual Financial Statement)
