Khathutshelo Mavhungu, former Trainee.

An important part of the experience is the fact that each trainee is given a CA mentor who walks the road with us – and often sacrifice their precious time to coach, be available and support us. Their commitment is comforting and encouraging and has the full backing of Barloworld management,”

Khathutshelo Mavhungu qualified as CA (SA) in 2018. She is now employed in the Internal Audit department at Barloworld Corporate Office as a Senior Internal Auditor.
