Kickstarting Careers with Digi CXO Apprentice

Digi is calling all young Malaysians to join the second cycle of Digi’s CXO Apprentice programme. The apprenticeship remains Digi’s innovation DNA, giving a unique approach, through a full-year direct mentorship programme with all of its top management team members.

Similar to the first year, the fresh graduates will compete for eight exclusive spots to apprentice with Digi’s top management team for a year.

The 12-month apprenticeship will see eight young talents, each tagged to one of eight Digi Chiefs (CXOs), namely the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Finance Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, Chief Network Officer, Chief Corporate Affairs Officer, Chief HR Officer, Chief IT Officer and Chief Digital Officer.

The selected eight apprentices will be exposed to high-level decision-making, dealing with real business challenges, working on high-impact projects across different business areas. They will be guided with direct input and guidance from their respective management mentors.

The pioneering batch of CXO Apprentices has reached the final quarter of their programme, and discussions are currently ongoing to identify their future roles. Their respective CXOs will continue mentoring them while they transition into their new roles.
