Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) invites South African unemployed graduates to apply for Internship Programme 2023.


CIPC (a member of the dtic) is committed to youth skills development by providing graduates with opportunities to gain work experience to complement their studies. Applicants are invited for an Internship Programme that would run for a period of 12 months. Interns will be placed in our Sunnyside Office (Pretoria).


As contemplated by Cabinet in December 2002, an Internship is a public service graduate work experience programme targeting unemployed graduates. It gives students workplace experience or an opportunity to practice the work skills that they have studied and will practice in the future.

Beneficiaries of the Internship programme:

  • Unemployed South African graduates from higher education institutions who have completed their degrees/diplomas.
  • Unemployed graduates who have not been exposed to work experience related to the area of study that they have completed.
  • Applicants must be between the ages of 18 to 35 years old.

Successful applicants will be expected to sign a Graduate Internship Programme Agreement.

Please ensure that you have uploaded and attached an updated CV and academic transcript of your highest/relevant qualification when you submit your application (as one attachment).


Qualifications and SA citizenship checks will be conducted on the successful candidate. It is the applicant’s responsibility to have foreign qualifications evaluated by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA).

It will be expected of candidates to be available for selection interviews on a date, time, and place as determined by CIPC.

CIPC is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer. Preference will be given to candidates whose appointment will enhance representativity in accordance with the approved employment equity plan.
