Purpose of the Job

The purpose of the 12 month internship program is to provide our Shoprite intern(s) with an in-depth understanding of the field of Industrial Psychology/Organisational Development through the practical application of theoretical knowledge, towards their certification as an I/O Psychologist at the end of the contract period.

The intern(s) will be formally supervised by registered Industrial Psychologists within Shoprite. The interns' University of choice will act as the supervising university of the internship.

This internship also affords interns an opportunity to register as an I/O Psychologist with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA).
