Careers at Cape Town TV
CTV has periodic openings for positions in the organisation. Some jobs are done by volunteers, while others are awarded to interns. The internship system enables young people to gain experience in the world of television in a learnership position for six-month periods. CTV has a small permanent staff of media professionals who manage the organisation and a mix of freelancers and interns as studio crew, journalists and videographers.
Cape Town TV has a limited number of internships for certain positions within the organisation. When internship positions become available they are advertised on the CTV website and social media, as well as in television industry media.
Internships generally last six months, except for voluntary student positions that are related to study programmes. However internships may be extended for a further six months under exceptional circumstances.
Students currently studying at tertiary education institutions may also apply for voluntary positions as part of their studies. Foreign students may apply for unpaid internships at CTV – they are then responsible for all their costs while in South Africa and must bring their own laptop PC.
CTV employs skilled professionals from the video industry to run the main functions at the station. Interns work on specific work areas related to CTV’s operational requirements.
