Following the announcement that applications were open for the paid dentsu SA
(South Africa) internship programme in May 2021, dentsu SA is proud to announce a total of 19 interns have joined the team in July and August 2021. The internship opportunities span across all media specialisations as well as finance, HR and IT.
The full-time dentsu internship programme is designed to provide a variety of development opportunities through experiential learning on the job, self-development, and guidance through mentorship. Our application process attracted many graduates from universities and colleges across Cape Town and Johannesburg.
After a six-month evaluation of performance and capability, dentsu SA seeks to retain their successful interns by appointing them into permanent roles where there is a suitable job match and opportunity across the region.
A key focus at dentsu SA is attracting top talent at early stages of their careers. To date, a total of 87 interns have been onboarded into the programme with an impressive 82% having been absorbed into permanent employment. 74% were offered permanent positions within the dentsu SA business and 8% into other businesses within the industry.
Dentsu SA pride themselves on offering practical and comprehensive skills to their interns and they are committed to building future leaders which is evident in the growth and development of the previous interns who currently hold permanent positions within the agency.
Yevenia Naidoo, HR director at Dentsu SA says: “We are very excited to have young talent enter our business that we can nurture and grow using our tools and learning platforms, providing mentorship and coaching and exposure to what we do to create a diverse experience that can build a sustainable career. I wish all of you every success for the future here!”
