Business Traineeship

A Business Administration Traineeship can equip you with all the professional tools required to hunt down endless opportunities in the business world.

The traineeship offers you a foundation in front-end business operations, from exposure to different systems, Customer Relationship Management databases and their maintenance, and even how to provide executive administrative support.

Depending on your host employer's industry and your participation in on-the-job training, you may find yourself working up through the ranks to management level, seeking out further qualifications for specialist and technical services to develop your own business, or seeking other opportunities in the corporate world.

A business traineeship typically runs for 12 months
