The Dil Internship Project is not just about work. We want to make sure that interns see the best of Pakistan. So, alongside fantastic work opportunities, we’ve arranged for city tours, amazing outdoor experiences as well as chances to meet locals and prominent Pakistanis.
We want to place interns in the most dynamic and interesting businesses that shape Pakistan’s commercial landscape. With Pakistan’s economy growing at a fast pace, many industries are going through a period of rapid change and there couldn’t be a more exciting to see these changes first hand.
Our businesses operate in a number of industries including Law, Textiles, Cosmetics and Property Management. These businesses are looking for a range of skills in various roles, so don’t feel that you have to fit a certain description. Candidates from all UK Universities and from any academic discipline are invited to apply to our variety of roles, which you can find out more about on our Companies Page. The specific responsibilities of an intern will depend on the internship they apply to, these will range from Sales Analyst to more technical internships in Product Design.
The internships will last 4 - 6 weeks and if you are successful in the application process we will liaise with you and the relevant business to create a tailored programme that allows you to benefit as much as possible from your time with each other.
If you intern with us in Karachi, it wont just be about work. We want to make sure that you leave Pakistan with great memories and a real sense of the rich traditions and culture. We’ve made a comprehensive programme that interns will be able to partake in completely free of charge! Here’s a list of some of the things you’ll be able to get up to, but by no means is that all.
City tours of Karachi with our tourism partner
Visits to some of Karachi’s major institutions, including Aga Khan University
Dawn bike riding on the beach
Networking with prominent Pakistanis
Meeting locals and University Students from Karachi
Visiting ancient markets
Karachi is a city of more than 20 million people, in many ways, it is a melting pot for many different Pakistani regions. So we do hope that we can help you make the most of your time in the city. We will have a dedicated Project Manager who will help curate your time in the city, and so evening trips to shopping centres and places to socialise can also be arranged. Interns in Dubai will also have the chance to experience Pakistani culture with the help of the strong Pakistani community in the UAE.
Remember, we will do the utmost to ensure your security by making comprehensive provisions, but it is your responsibility to act responsibly whilst in Pakistan.
Your help to Pakistani businesses will be invaluable and a part of a much bigger vision of helping skills find a natural home in Pakistani enterprise. There is no shortage of opportunities in Pakistan and you can leave your mark with the Dil Internship Project.
