Excited about the inspiring potential of students and graduates and aware of the demand for skills in our digital economy, Flying Cows of Jozi connects the two by creating mentored work- and work experience projects. This creates opportunities for young people to become (self-) employed and brings fresh energy and insight to businesses and organisations.
Flying Cows of Jozi is a division of Bamboo Rock, the ICT consulting, training and interim management company that for the past 15 years has developed and executed projects connecting people and technology, together with partners from different parts of society.
Flying Cows of Jozi engages students and graduates both in the execution of Bamboo Rock projects as well as in placements with Bamboo Rock’s clients and partners where Flying Cows of Jozi takes responsibility for the recruitment, mentoring and induction into the workplace.
Currently Flying Cows of Jozi works with ICT in Education students from the University of Johannesburg (UJ) Faculty of Education and Strategic Communication students from the UJ Faculty of Humanities.
Working on Flying Cows of Jozi projects, the students earn a fair hourly rate which contributes to their study and living expenses. In addition to on-the-job mentoring, Flying Cows of Jozi offers personal development: building confidence and a sense of personal agency to empower these young people to step forward into an exciting career in the digital economy.
Projects we currently work on include design and delivery of digital skills training and digital education content curation & development.
