Internship opportunities for urban sustainability graduates
 
The City is calling on graduates with qualifications related to the environment; planning; economic development; policy and strategy; information management and sustainable energy fields to apply for the Urban Sustainability Internship Programme (USIP) at the City of Cape Town before 14 October 2019.
 
The City of Cape Town is offering qualifying graduates with a 12-month long internship as part of the 2020 intake for the USIP. The internship will start in February 2020. All qualifying National Diploma or Degree graduates in a related field are welcome to apply by Monday, 14 October 2019.
 
There are 40 internship posts available within areas such as Climate Management; Coastal Management; Economic Research; Human Settlements Policy Development; Nature Conservation; Project and Contract Management ; Architecture and Urban Spatial Planning.
 
Successful applicants will have the opportunity to be a part of the dynamic Energy; Environment; Policy Management; Spatial Planning and Information Management teams at the City and will be placed with a specific manager who will mentor and guide them. The interns will play a key role within their respective teams and will be assigned tasks which are essential to the relevant department function.
 
‘The internship is an exciting opportunity for graduates to develop skills in key operational areas within the City of Cape Town. One of the important aspects of this internship programme is the mentoring from their managers and the access to training opportunities. The City’s investment in these individuals is instrumental in laying the foundation for one’s professional career. The programme already enjoys a reputation of an excellent learning experience for interns. Thus far we have received impressive feedback from various employers in the industry on the level of skills these USIP interns display,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Corporate Services, Councillor Sharon Cottle.
The USIP launched in 2005. Since the inception, 469 Interns have participated in the programme with 85 of these interns currently working permanently for the City. A total of 49 new interns started in February this year and it is planned that another 58 graduates will join the programme from 1 February 2020.
 
The City’s long-term strategy determines what type of expertise the municipality needs to promote and develop among residents. In this instance the USIP programme ensures that sustainability is incorporated and enhanced throughout the City by reinforcing the municipality’s new way of working where we consider Cape Town’s future needs.
 
To apply for one of the positions applicants need to send a cover letter, CV and supporting documents to urbansustainability.interns@capetown.gov.za. Applicants must be recent graduates of a tertiary institution, and be in possession of a recognised degree or national diploma in a related field. Specific qualification requirements are included in each advertised post.
 
•        Preference will be given to graduates from universities, technical universities and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges in the Western Cape, and applicants should not be enrolled for further studies which coincide with the internship period.
