  • What are we looking for?

Woven into the fabric of our beautiful country is the story of an extraordinary company that has touched the lives of South Africans for over nine decades. The Tiger Brands' story is one rich in bold moves, belief and brilliance, centred around our expansive portfolio of proudly South African brands. From iconic TV adverts like the Koo 'Mama Thembu's getting married' advert to cherished memories of sharing a Tinkies with your best friend on the playground, our brands have been part of the moments that matter in the lives of millions of South Africans since 1921. We have developed an intrinsic understanding of our consumers' needs, recognising the moments when they need us most, and how best to meet these needs from the very beginning of life through to old age. Our purpose is simple - to nourish and nurture more lives every day.

Passionately created by people who are consumer-obsessed, our brands remain consumer favourites year after year. Koo is a market leader and enjoys heritage status alongside "oldies" like Fattis and Monis, Jungle Oats, Enterprise, All Gold, Purity, Oros, Ingrams, Doom and Tastic Rice. Such endurance is not a coincidence, it is the result of consumer-focused strategy and excellent execution. The goals we have set for our company can only be achieved if we hold uncompromisingly to our values, as well as to our commitment to developing world class, passionate people. As we work towards a more sustainable future together, we hold ourselves to a high standard. In this way we are able to cultivate a winning culture.

Tiger Brands is accredited with the FoodBev Seta and provide a number of opportunities in line with the SETA's requirements.

Work Experience, Work Integrated Learning or In-Service Training refers to the period required by certain qualifications for students to obtain formal work experience. This period is formally monitored by the institution and assessed on completion. The qualification cannot be obtained without the completion of this prescribed programme. Tiger Brands places 'Workplace Experience students' or 'interns' on fixed term contracts to gain practical experience and complete their qualification. 'Workplace Experience students' who have successfully completed their work experience period and obtained their qualification can apply to join the Tiger Brands Management Trainee programme or for an appropriate vacant role within the group.

Successful candidates, selected for the workplace experience programme would have a sound academic record at an accredited institution and require an in-service training period to complete their qualification.

We also have opportunities for Tiger Explorers who are top achieving graduates. We hire across disciplines for this accelerated leadership programme for Management Trainees.
