The interns will be paid a stipend of between Ksh15,000 and Ksh25,000 as part of the Public Service Internship Programme (PSIP).
The recruitment process for the fourth cohort began on August 3, 2021, with a list of shortlisted candidates released in November 2021.
The positions advertised were from various government departments, ministries, and agencies.
After completing their one-year program, interns have the opportunity to be absorbed into a variety of ministries and departments.
Successful candidates will carry out mutually agreed-upon duties, including those assigned by supervisors, and will document relevant skills gained.
During that time, they are also expected to participate in a variety of mentorship programs.
PSIP is a government initiative that provides graduates with opportunities to gain technical and professional skills as well as work experience in the public sector.
The goal of the Public Service Internship Programme is to recruit competent and qualified individuals to fill positions in Kenya’s respective Ministries, State Departments, and Agencies (MDAs).
