Learning & Personal Development | SEFE Marketing & Trading

Learning & personal development

We love turning today’s talent into tomorrow’s trailblazers. And in the SEFE Marketing & Trading workplace, developing our team’s skills from day one is all part of the inspiring environment we thrive on.

At SEFE Marketing & Trading, developing your knowledge, skills and experience in ways that let you thrive is something we strongly believe in. Everything we do is fuelled by the flow of continuous learning; developing talent and strengthening the organisation to fully deliver on its strategic ambitions.

We operate a 70:20:10 model which essentially holds that individuals can obtain knowledge through learning and development by breaking things down in the following way:

And there are several ways we can help employees achieve this. The learning and development solutions SEFE Marketing & Trading provide are tailored to ensure high-impact, high-quality progression through a variety of opportunities including classroom courses, e-learning, external and technical training, and more. Likewise, we partner with other businesses, creating support functions that cater to both wider companies as well as the individual.
