The 7th annual
GradStar Awards Programme identifies the top 100 most employable and talented tertiary-level students. As part of the awards entry process, students answer a set of questions that include (but are not limited to) their employer of choice based on their own perceptions and experiences.
After receiving 7 000 responses, the GradStar team categorised the top three companies in each industry. These companies were announced at the Momentum Metropolitan GradStar Students' Choice Awards that were held on 2 December 2022. We are delighted to announce that Webber Wentzel was awarded 2nd place in the top 3 companies in the legal space (with Bowmans in 1st position and Cliff Dekker Hofmeyr in 3rd position).
Laura Barker founder of the GradStar Awards said,
"We are over the moon to be hosting the Momentum Metropolitan Students' Choice Awards. These young people are our future and are here to take the country forward, their opinions matter and we need to hear what they think. We developed the Momentum Metropolitan Students’ Choice Awards as a demonstration of our commitment to our future leaders, and corporate South Africa who have developed some amazing innovations in the workplace during extremely challenging economic conditions".
Our Graduate Recruitment Manager, Siyurie Moodley attended the awards ceremony and said
"Being awarded the 2nd place position in the legal category is a testament that all the campaigns we have been running across universities are valuable to students. This is also an indication that we have successfully positioned Webber Wentzel as a brand that aims to attract and retain the best people who are engaged and optimistic about their future".
