INTERNSHIPS PROGRAMME

Umvoto runs an award-winning Internship Programme which has provided practical training and academic support for over 100 post-graduate students from South Africa and abroad. South African universities include, Cape Town, Fort Hare, Free State, KwaZulu Natal, Stellenbosch as well as the Universities of Technology: Cape Town and Tshwane. We have also received applications from applicants in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, France and Germany. 

Umvoto has a three-pronged approach to developing our interns; recognising that individuals need guidance with respect to skills, attitude and more importantly knowledge.  Experienced mentors are sourced in-house to ensure that experience gained covers both technical and life skills. At Umvoto, interns are immersed in daily operations and the business environment from the get-go.

The following are the types of interns Umvoto takes on

Local Graduates
