On Thursday 19 October, we hosted Portia Warburton and Cindy McIntyre from the MR Price Talent Recruitment team. Portia and Cindy were on campus to present to our 3rd year students the career opportunities available with the Mr Price Group in Durban, and give us a look at the work environment at Mr Price Head Office.

Interested Graduates have the opportunity to enroll on to the Mr Price Group Graduate and Internship programme and can explore careers in fashion such as:

  • Fashion Buying
  • Planning
  • Store Operations
  • Marketing
  • Graphic Design
  • Clothing Design
  • Quality Assurance

Portia Warburton had this to say about the Mr Price Visit:
“The Mr Price Group was honoured to visit the wonderful 3rd year students at Elizabeth Galloway in the beautiful wine lands of Stellenbosch. We loved meeting the students and telling them all about how fun it is to work at Mr P and what amazing opportunities with regards to careers in fashion we can offer in sunny Durban. We were thoroughly impressed with the amazing campus at EG and look forward to employing these high calibre fashion students into our business”.

3rd year EG student Kearin Burrows has completed 2 internships at MR Price during her 2nd and 3rd year Work Integrated Learning module and summed up her experience like this:
“Interning at Mr. Price Headquarters was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I learned so much, and was given so much independence within the company to truly grow and enrich myself. Unbelievably grateful for the time I spent there.”

Thank you to Mr Price Talent acquisition team for their visit to Elizabeth Galloway Academy of Fashion Design and the local fashion industry.
