Importantly, approximately 80% of YPP interns have received employment opportunities within ZEP-RE upon completion of their internship, due to their excellent performance and personal attributes. Additionally, the high calibre enables the remaining interns to quickly attain opportunities in the insurance and broader financial services sectors. The programme boasts a 100% transition to employment for all interns.
