Do you understand Jacques Elliot's level of work theory inside out? Are you saving up to go on a psychometric accreditation? That might identify you as a person of interest to us. Now if you also have a first-year Master’s degree in Industrial Psychology and you think it's time to apply what you have learned, we might have a proposition for you…
You're obviously already interested in why and how human beings do things in a work environment so send us your CV.


The purpose of the 1212-month internship program is to provide our MMI Holdings interns with an in-depth understanding of the field of Industrial Psychology/Organisational Development through the practical application of theoretical knowledge. 

The intern will be supervised by a registered Industrial Psychologist within MMI. The University of choice from the intern will act as the supervising university of the internship.
