UCS Technology Services has opened applications for their third annual Internship Programme. Offering practical and paid work opportunities to IT graduates, UCS TS provides a structured 1 year programme aimed at exposing young people to the professional market.
Thoko Mzolisa, HR Executive, explains, “UCS TS is invested in providing opportunities to young South Africans, and contributing to skills development and jobs creation in the ICT sector. Growing interns’ potential through active and hands-on internships is also in line with UCS TS’s commitment to promoting employment equity.”
With internships aligned to the MICT Seta protocols, young adults are equipped with valuable skills and relevant workplace experience. “Our internships are designed to bridge that gap between theory and practice through constructive opportunities for learning and development, and with a view to permanent employment,” says Thoko. “Internships are offered in departments of UCS TS that both have a need for extra personnel, and that are best situated to retain the intern.”
Now in its third successful year, interns work in roles best suited to their strengths, talents and career aspirations. “We make use of mentors to ensure that our interns’ knowledge is built practically in line with the needs and expectations of the business world,” explains Thoko.
UCS TS internships are offered in Bloemfontein, Johannesburg and Cape Town, and are advertised through tertiary learning institutions as well as career websites. Applications close on 15 November 2015.
