Internships Cape Town South Africa

Internships Cape Town South Africa - applications for our internships 2019 programme are now open! Fresh out of matric, or university and ready for a new challenge? Take a look at our Internship Academy. We offer full-time paid internships based in Cape Town, with intake at any time.

Brand Innovation is a corporate gifts and promotional items supplier. We have a mission to provide youth employment, and to be a platform for the development and empowerment of young people. And it’s not our first time at the rodeo - since we first opened our doors 13 year ago, we have taken on between 5 and 10 paid interns each year. This has evolved into a standalone project: The Internship Academy.

So, what makes the Internship Academy different from other internship programmes?

We recognise that many businesses take on interns who don’t end up getting the time and attention they need - they spend their time fetching coffees instead of learning new skills.

With this in mind, the Internship Academy is designed to provide a structured learning environment for interns. It combines a theory-based component with real-world work experience - so nobody gets left behind!

But it’s not all about skills in your specific field - interns learn professional etiquette and skills applicable to the rest of their working lives. The programme also assists you in finding work after the internship ends.
