A finance internship in South Africa offers an incredible opportunity to gain real-world experience in the finance industry. You will gain a competitive advantage by connecting your coursework with industry experience in the largest economy in Africa, from companies focusing on wealth management, capital assets, financial analysis, and client services.

South Africa is an emerging global economy and is a member of BRICS, the economic trade union that includes Brazil, Russia, India and China. South Africa is the largest economy in Africa and an internship in this field will give interns the opportunity to engage international and domestic financial matters. The overall experience will enhance your global perspective of business opportunity and could also result in your establishment of lasting professional connections in South Africa. Applicants with an interest in economic development should consider one of our microfinance internships, as this will place you in an internship environment where you will contribute to poverty reduction through the economic enfranchisement of previously disadvantaged South Africans.

The finance industry remains a major part of most economies and is the preferred destination of many graduates. The most prominent finance internships are with the major banks and finance houses but there are plenty of roles available with smaller firms, which often offer more hands-on experience that help you to develop relevant skills and contacts. Finance internships are available in any number of sub-sectors including accountancy, banking and wealth management, to name just a few. Naturally finance roles are more geared towards those with numerical degrees but graduates with an interest in the sector and demonstrable knowledge of working with numbers or Excel often do well too.


For those seeking an African internship placement in the fields of microfinance, economics and finance, there are a number of opportunities in Cape Town that will not only give you work experience and broaden your horizons but will offer along with that an adventure of a lifetime.

About Cape Town
About cape town pin it!

Cape Town has moderately wet [and windy] winters and dry, warm summers, great for spending at one of the peninsula’s unique and beautiful beaches. It also hosts some great sporting events such as the Two Oceans Marathon, Cape Argus Cycle Tour and Red Bull Big Wave Africa surfing competition. It is also host to a magnificent world cup stadium and plenty of adventurous opportunities for paragliding, abseiling, rock climbing, hiking and kite-surfing. The people of South Africa are very friendly and vibrant people who will welcome you with open arms.

During your African internship you will be located in the popular area of Cape Town called Observatory. This vibrant town is conveniently only 7km from the centre of the city and has a unique bohemian atmosphere with trendy restaurants and lively bars.

You will stay in a private, lockable and furnished room in the centrally located house exclusive for the use of internship participants. When living in program housing, you will share the common areas of your house with other interns. You will be sharing shower and toilet facilities and the use of a lounge area with cable television where you can relax.


You will build meaningful relationships and gain valuable insights into the global world of finance, all while experiencing daily adventures in the amazing Mother City.

Feedback from our volunteers
Elias El Ayoubi

Giving me the opportunity to work in an investment bank in your country was a big challenge for me. I had to deal with the specific bank vocabulary and the barrier languages as much as I had to deal with the cultures differences. However, you made my trip way easier by accompanying me through every step of my incredible journey. The team are here as a mother when you need help, they’re here as a father when you need them to defend your interest, and when everything goes well, they’re simply here to be your friend and make you discover their country and make you feel loved when far away from your house and family.  Thank you!
