Total aims to attract talented people with its Bursary Programme and considers themselves a learning organisation because it understands that it is people who will drive the company’s growth and strategy.
Total was established in South Africa in 1954, after a Frenchman came to visit and saw a large, well established agricultural industry. Total first entered the market by supplying farmers with lubricants for their machinery. It was in 1956 that Total embarked on the development of a service station network. Today Total has a strategically positioned network of service stations along with 530 service stations located throughout South Africa
