Internship salaries in Kenya


Most companies in Kenya don’t pay interns salaries, they instead allow them to work and receive recommendation letters, but there are a couple of companies which pay decent salaries even when someone is an intern.

If you want to earn salary as an intern, these are the sectors to join:

  • NGO
  • Banking
  • Insurance
  • Research companies
  • Manufacturing industry
  • Clearing industry
  • Milk processing industry
  • Teaching institutions
  • Media

The worst place to work as an intern is in a government institution. Almost all government institutions don’t have a budget for interns, hence no pay. If you happen to join an institution like The Treasury as an Intern, you will end up not earning anything.
