Urgent Notice : Be aware Of Hoax Adverts For SAPREF Learnerships

Please note that there are currently no SAPREF Learnership opportunities available for 2017. We have picked up that hoax adverts are being circulated that require individuals to pay a fee for securing of learnerships and internships. This is not aligned with SAPREF’s recruitment practices as applicants are never asked to pay for employment opportunities.

The next learnership intake will be in September 2017 for the 2018 programme. This opportunity will be advertised on the SAPREF website www.sapref.com . Caution should be exercised when applying for learnerships at SAPREF via any other website or advert as such opportunities currently do not exist.
