Paid Internship 2024

One of the most common questions asked about internships is whether you get paid.

In South Africa employers usually recognise that the process of attending work every day costs money when participating in an internship programme. So you should be paid a stipend, or a small payment, to at least cover the costs of your employment. You might need to buy some new clothes for work, and traveling to work each day also costs money.

In 2024 Internships in South Africa should come with some payment. This is better than many internships overseas which are unpaid. This tends to be limiting as only young people from a wealthy background can afford to work on an internship for free. For unemployed young people even the process of job seeking costs money that they may not have.

Work Experience During Internship Jobs

Although you will never get rich on an internship, the experience gained while participating in an internship programme is of great value. Even if you have qualifications to place on your CV it is still a problem for many young people who don't have work experience.

Internships are a way of gaining work experience and employers gain extra staff at a lower than normal rate. They normally entail full time work at the employ but it is also possible to have part time internships - although these are not common. 

Top Companies Offering Internship Jobs

Popular companies like Foschini group that employ a lot of staff are often among the top employers of interns. It make sense for them to do that because it allows them to see how the interns perform at the workplace and then the best of then can possibly be employed after the internship is over. The human resources department will normally review the staff on an internship to see who is suitable for a full-time internship job.

Companies that often offer internships include Eskom, SAB, Transnet, Clicks, Absa, Discovery, Pick n Pay, Woolworths, Foschini Group, and others.

Seta Internships on our Job Portal

The Setas provide Learnerships and internships for young people. Learnerships are formal programmes that have a legally stipulated stipend to be paid to be each full time learner. Internship opportunities are much more informal as each company can decide on the terms of the internship.

The Seta internship positions are slightly more formal as the Seta, for example the Services Seta, will specify the duration of the internship, how much should be paid to each person on the internship and whether it's full-time or part-time. So when you see the Services Seta, or any of the other Setas, offering internship opportunities you know they will have good standards.

Government Internships 2024 South Africa

Internships with government departments are very popular and are a great learning experience where you will gain hands on experience. The government is a very desirable employer as they pay good benefits and have good work practices. Internships don't offer the same practices  as full time employment - but doing well on an internship programme can open the door to a full time job in the future. Unemployed graduates are often offered places on a government internship 2024 and they help you gain hands on experience working in government departments. They are a less formal version of a Learnership programme.
