    International / Regional / National Project Intern

    We’re looking for current or immediately past undergraduate and graduate students for internship opportunities in a variety of roles including project management, business development, business intelligence, content creation and more. We’re interested in you if you’re creative, passionate and energetic!

    From the moment you join us, you’ll be assigned responsibilities that will challenge you and help you to acquire new skills. You’ll be empowered to run and contribute to projects, solve problems and develop solutions that will impact our audience of millions and our clients and partners.

    By the end of your internship, you will have gained real skills that will prepare you for the next phase of your career - which could still be with Pulse as our interns are often considered for a longer term commitment of regular employment. We prefer to recruit once and hire twice!

    This will be a full-time paid internship requiring you to work from one of our office locations - Lagos, Accra, Nairobi or Dakar - currently partially remotely as a COVID-19 precaution.
