ACTS Marketing Intern Required

Marketing Internship

If you are considering a career in the media or marketing industry and have a passion for Christian mission work in Africa then an internship with ACTS in Cape Town, South Africa is the perfect opportunity for you to expand your cultural and professional horizons!

ACTS is a Christian, African-based organisation that is passionate about missions in Africa.Our ministry is to help facilitate mission trips and individual Christian volunteer placements in Southern and East Africa. We understand how difficult it can be to make logistical arrangements in Africa, so our heart is to take this burden off of visiting teams and local missionaries/organizations, so that they are able to focus solely on the ministry at hand.

As an ACTS Marketing intern you will not only gain valuable industry experience, but you will also be involved with the missions work that is being done on the ground.
