View current Sirdar vacancies below

Sirdar is Africa’s leading educator, appointer and guide of high-performance boards. Our promise is meaningful economic impact. We believe that effective boards grow companies, helping them become more sustainable with less risk and better returns.

We currently have four internship positions available for 2021. This presents a wonderful prospect for aspiring leaders with limited or no experience to watch and learn from industry leaders and at the same time make a specific individual contribution to Sirdar’s business goals.

You will have the opportunity to put theory into practice, develop your confidence, build up your CV in terms of delivery specific to your field of interest, increase your marketability, build personal connections, and experience work dynamics in a collaborative and supportive environment.

Please note, that Sirdar does not have a formal internship programme per se. We simply provide an opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience in our field while working in our business. Our interns do, however, take on the role of an employee and are given ownership of specific projects and deliverables, while at the same time job shadowing the members of our team during client meetings, workshops and the general daily grind.

What to Expect:

Our internships do not offer a full employment salary, but rather a stipend to assist with covering costs of travel to work, meals, etc. The stipend is currently set at R6000 per month. Sirdar do not provide support regarding the arrangement of accommodation/daily transport/meals etc. which are all for your own account (we will, however, provide advice and guidance in this regard). Our internship positions will run for six months with an assessment being conducted in month five to determine whether or not it will be extended.
