Since 2014, the Company's main commitment is symbolized by the "Young Graduate Program". This program launched in more than 33 African countries in partnership with over 100 universities is a program for young graduates.
The program helps young people under 26 years of age with a 5-year degree and less than one year of professional experience. It helps this category of people to find their first job and to integrate as easily as possible in the professional sphere. Among the sectors most likely to welcome these young people, 3 categories of jobs are regularly the places where these people are welcomed: technical jobs (42%), trade (35%) and finance (17%).
For the time being, 46% of the participants who have benefited from the "Young Graduate Program" are women while 54% are men.
To help these young people in their professional integration, the "Young Graduate Program" is divided into several precise stages. First, the young graduate is recruited by the Company to join the TotalEnergies subsidiary in his or her home country for a six-month contract. At the end of this first stage, the beneficiary of the program can choose to continue the program by having the opportunity to continue his or her professional career by joining another subsidiary in Africa or by working at the Company's French headquarters for a period of one year. Following this path, the "Young Graduate Program" ends, and the young person is employed.
Since its inauguration in 2014, 62% of the young people who participated in the Young Graduate Program have been hired by TotalEnergies. 18% of the program's beneficiaries have been recruited by another company while 20% of the beneficiaries have continued in another path (by going back to school, for example).
The Young Graduate Program is currently being rolled out in most African countries. For the moment, the countries that have seen the youngest people benefit from this program are Kenya (44 young people), South Africa (41 young people), Uganda (27 young people), Ghana (26 young people), Nigeria (22 young people) and Mozambique (22 young people).
