SANParks Internship Opportunity 2018

The South African National Park hereby offers internship opportunities to South African graduates. Applications are invited from candidates in the Finance/Accounting industry.

South African National Parks (SANParks) is the leading conservation authority in all national parks around this country, responsible for 3 751 113 hectares of protected land in 20 national parks. The focus for SANParks in the first decade of democracy has been to make national parks more accessible to tourists in order to ensure conservation remains a viable contributor to social and economic development in rural areas.

With the changed structure of the country after 1994, and with majority rule, the then National Parks Board re-conceptualised its role in South African society. SANParks, supported by the government through the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism has also increased the area of land under its protection by 360 000 hectares in this time.

The organisation has managed to transform itself, continue its high research and management standards, expand the land under its protection at an entirely unprecedented rate and has also begun to generate 75% of its operating revenue – a spectacular financial achievement compared to most conservation agencies in the world, including those in developed countries.

Who is eligible to apply?

Unemployed South African graduates, with tertiary qualifications (Degree or National Diploma) in one of the abovementioned field of study, who have not been previously employed and attended any internship programme.

The duration of the Internship will be one (1) year with a monthly stipend of R5000.00 paid to successful candidates.
