Fetola are South Africa’s leading business growth professionals, specialising in the globally critical small business sector. Our purpose is simple: we help people to grow the economy and create jobs, by building businesses that last; working across sectors and country-wide.
As part of our ongoing strategy to recruit and nurture the highest quality staff, whose personal vision is to excel as individuals and to actively contribute to building a better future.
What sets us apart
We do not groom skilled paper-punchers or baristas – our interns receive real work tasks and are making a difference!
We value our interns. Hosting interns bring many valuable benefits both to us as the host organisation and to the intern. Our interns have proven to bring fresh thinking, innovative ideas and key skills. They’re hardworking, driven individuals, expected to perform like any other member of staff.
Among many other benefits, through our Graduate Internship Programme, we were able to discover potential future employees. So far 25 local interns have been promoted to permanent members of staff.
What to expect
Selected interns experience a 360º view of the business. They will work alongside various project managers, be immersed into business operations and strategic decision making, and are free to contribute ideas and make suggestions. They will work as a value-adding member on leading projects and gain insight into entrepreneurship. Our interns add tremendous value during their time at Fetola whilst making a visible difference to the future of South Africa.
The Graduate Internship Programme is an excellent way to experience different cultures and gain real working experience. It has proven to help launch graduates from all over the world into successful careers. Company culture is fundamental at Fetola, which is why we aim to host an intern from each country! This is how we’re doing as at September 2018.
