For a long time, there has been a perception that at Capitec you seldom make it from operations to head office. However, there are quite a few stories that prove the opposite. One of these stories stars Avukile Janda.

Avukile has an honours degree in Financial Management. He joined us as a service consultant (SC) in 2012, a position he held for more than 3 years. With his degree in hand, he managed to work his way up from being an SC to become a Bancs Cash Accountant. He declined other in-branch development positions, because he had a clear career path in mind.

Avukile applied for positions at head office multiple time without success. Even so, he kept working, often going above and beyond his daily duties.

He doesn’t shy away from the fact that the support of Lourens Botes, his Regional Manager, played a big role in his progress. In June, Avukile will have been with us for 6 years and he now holds the position of Operational Support Analyst in Management Accountant. “I am going to Treasury. Just watch me,” he says.

There are many more examples of Operations to head office success stories. Yours could be one of them. All it takes is a growth mindset and sometimes a change of perception to change your reality.
