AMASA Learnership Programme open for 2012 intern applications

Kicking off its fourth year of attracting bright young talent into the media industry, the AMASA Learnership Programme (ALP), is now open for 2012 intern applications. 

 This year, AMASA is once again looking for several candidates to participate in the AMASA Learnership Programme. The successful candidates will be employed and mentored by leading media companies, and remunerated and enrolled on the AAA media module and AMASA Media Planning Workshop.

AMASA’s core focus is to attract bright young minds into the exciting world of media, and ensure that the individuals not only excel, but remain within the industry.

Each year AMASA partners with South Africa’s leading media companies who mentor the ALP interns and fast-track their hands on experience. During the programme, the ALP interns will be trained jointly by both AMASA and the partner companies, with each intern receiving a six-month remunerated contract with a host company as well as free entrance to the AAA media course and the AMASA Media Planning Workshop.

AMASA’s Chairperson, Lyn Jones comments, “The ALP is our core reason for being, enabling us to deliver against our primary mandate of driving media education. The ALP calls to graduates who not only possess exceptional academic credentials, but outstanding potential. The ALP offers talented graduates a unique foot into the media industry and the opportunity to be mentored by some of the most respected professionals in the industry. Simultaneously, the ALP assists in curbing the talent shortage from an agency perspective.”

The ALP is open to any candidates with a tertiary qualification however preference will be given to graduates who have Higher Grade Maths, BCom, Marketing, Statistics and Research qualifications.

Application forms to be downloaded from and submitted without supporting documentation to [email protected] by no later than 31 March 2012. Selected candidates should be available to commence employment in early May 2012.
