This discussion paper delves into the current state of academic Statistics in South Africa, specifically the development of an early career academic  supervisor in Statistics. The discussions held by the authors on this topic since 2020 have resulted in clear need for action by early career academics in  Statistics. This discussion paper motivates a solution involving a guiding rubric for the doctoral thesis coupled with an active early career supervisor  network across South Africa.
