Corporate Communications and Investor Relation Summer Graduate Internship, 2016

“I was recently really privileged to be Phatisa’s first intern and have the opportunity to develop the unique ‘Summer Graduate Internship Programme’ for the Corporate Communications and Investor relations department. I felt at home from the first day among Phatisa’s very friendly yet professional staff, who made my experience at Phatisa both exciting and challenging. The Corporate Communications and Investor Relations team is highly productive and innovative, pleasant to work with and committed to providing guidance in every way possible. The various skills that I have gained through this experience have certainly given me an advantage over other graduates. This internship has improved my way of interpreting ideas, tackling challenges and the methods I apply to everyday work. With my internship now complete, I would like to thank the Corporate Communications and Investor Relations team for all the knowledge they have shared, and the skills and techniques they taught me, which I can now use to improve my contribution to the working world.”

Thanks to this programme, I gained valuable experience in deal team and portfolio management in the African PE sector. I strongly support this method of developing the talents and potential of Africa’s youth.”
