Safaricom Internship Salary, Vacancies, and Application Process

Safaricom is a giant telecommunications powerhouse that needs a little introduction.

The profit-oriented private corporate has benefited many Kenyans through service delivery and employment opportunities.

As is the norm in most corporations, Safaricom also has room for internships.

However, only a few graduates and final-year university students have comprehensive information about Safaricom internships. 

If you are a third, fourth-year, or recent graduate, you can join Safaricom as an intern and gain corporate-level experience.

The internship plays a significant role in creating a solid background for your career.

You can already imagine a future potential employer learning about your association with Safaricom and that you had a chance to work with their success-oriented team of professionals.

Safaricom internship programs take place quarterly (three months) and not the usual six months in the following manner:

  • January-March
  • April-June
  • July-September
  • October-December

Safaricom Internship Qualifications

Safaricom has highlighted several qualifications that interested intern candidates should meet and possess.

Recent graduates and ongoing students should ensure they meet the following requirements and qualifications before applying for a Safaricom internship:

  • Applicants should be in the final or third year of their university studies or should not have exceeded one year after graduating. 
  • Applicants should be ready to commit to the three-month-long internship program without interference from school or personal lives. Interns are expected to report in their respective departments from Monday-Friday, 8 am to 5 pm.
  • Should only be available for an internship during the selected quarter of the year. If your internship is slotted for April-June, you cannot forfeit and join the July-Sep cohort.
  • Interns should leave after three months without expecting a period extension so that the following interns can start their duration. Interns can, however, apply for available graduate jobs and earn a longer stay at Safaricom.

What is Safaricom STEM Internship?

The Safaricom STEM internship program focuses on absorbing students who have studied Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics in relevant departments.

Students in this internship arrangement work in software engineering, data analytics, and network engineering. 

The interns achieve career exposure and an opportunity to interact with the latest and emerging technology trend.

Enrolled students are also lucky to get mentorship from Safaricom’s technology intellectuals.

STEM interns also stand a chance at being nurtured for permanent work after completing the internship.

Safaricom Internship Salary

Safaricom interns can count on the corporation to offer them a monthly stipend for their contribution.

There has yet to be an official communication from Safaricom touching on the intern’s monthly salary, but most reputable Kenyan job review sites project it at an average of Ksh. 25,000-35,000.

The job review sites’ projections often come from former and current employees who share their salary information with those platforms.

By and large, the amount is what most corporations, private and public, pay their interns.
