Flutterwave Hires 85% of Graduate Trainees as Full-Time Employees
By Modupe Gbadeyanka
About 170 of the 200 graduate trainees of Flutterwave (85 per cent) have been absorbed into the organisation as full-time employees after the completion of their programme.
The leading payments technology firm in August 2022 launched its Graduate Trainee (GT) scheme to nurture young talents seeking clear career growth opportunities in technology.
Some days ago, a graduation ceremony was held in Lagos to celebrate the end of the rigorous 12-month-long paid traineeship scheme. The participants were put through technical and soft skills and practical experiences.
“We are excited that our aim of giving 200 extremely bright young graduates opportunities to learn on the job and kick start their careers in tech early in life has finally been accomplished.
“As 170 of them transition from GTs to full-time employees after completing 12 months of on-the-job training and shadowing, there are myriad opportunities available for them to explore.
“I am excited that they get to grow their career on our newly launched career progress framework, which is the definition of endless possibilities.
“Today, they’re Analysts and Engineer 1s; tomorrow, they could be VPs and CXOs. Anything is possible at Flutterwave. I wish all our 200 GTs, even those who moved on to other opportunities, only the very best. The world is your oyster!” Flutterwave’s Global Chief People Officer, Mansi Babyloni, said.
Also, the Chief Operating Officer at Flutterwave, Bode Abifarin, said, “We’re thankful for the successful completion of the Flutterwave Graduate Trainee Program.
“We thank the People Team and all the Graduate Trainee Managers who helped coach, mentor, and train our GTs to propel their growth into Analysts and Engineer 1s. This is in line with our mission to create endless possibilities for all; truly, their careers have taken off, and there’s no limit to what they can achieve going forward.”
A Developer Experience Engineer 1 at Flutterwave, Chijioke Okorji, said, “There’s a clear difference in my growth from when I joined to now. I have a better understanding of my career path and have acquired marketable skills that I am proud of. More organizations like Flutterwave should give young people a chance through initiatives like this.”
