The Graduate Development Program (GDP) is a Country Management initiated program with the aim to develop young graduates within the following disciplines, i.e. Project Management, Project Controlling and Project Engineering. Twenty graduates from universities and universities of technology across South Africa participate in this program, ten in Project Management and five in Project Engineering and Project Controlling respectively. The career development plan consists of a combination of intensive theoretical training and practical experiences that are aligned to the fundamental competency requirements within each of the focus areas. Each young graduate is assigned to a mentor who will monitor and assess their progress throughout the duration of the program. Submission starts in the last quarter of each year.  

This initiative is indicative of ABB’s on-going commitment to bridge the skills gap in our industry by providing meaningful workplace experience.
