General Description

The Construction Internship at Sage Education Services Africa (SES AFRICA) provides relevant field experience for junior or senior level construction management students. Our internship program provides a realistic view of what it’s like to work in road or building construction through meaningful, hands-on experiences. From coordinating subcontractors and suppliers to surveying

and setting control lines, our interns assume a wide variety of responsibilities during their time with Sage Education Services Africa (SES AFRICA)

Key Duties May Include:

Support the project management team with subcontractor and supplier coordination, material tracking, file management, document control (submittals, RFIs, and change orders), and progress reporting.

Work with field supervision to assist with project layout, setting control lines, surveying, construction drawing and trade coordination, verification of field conditions, and quality control.

Requirements

Regularly, construction interns are required to sit and/or stand during a regular work shift of at least eight hours per day. As an intern, you are occasionally required to stoop, bend, walk, crouch, and climb. Specific vision abilities required by this program include close vision, distance vision, color vision, peripheral vision, depth perception, and ability to adjust focus. Continuous mental attention required to complete tasks in an efficient manner. Exposure to dust, dirt grease, and noise.

Work can be performed at heights up to 60 feet, requiring the intern to climb ladders, scaffolds, and stair towers, often with narrow steps and passageways.

Frequently walk on uneven surfaces, including natural ground and slopes in varying weather conditions.

Must be able to work a flexible schedule, based on project need(s) and demand(s).

Work Environment.

The work environment characteristics described below are representative of those that our construction intern encounters while performing the essential functions of this job. Work is performed outdoors in all weather conditions.

The work environment periodically exposes the employees to high levels of noise, grease, and dust that are typically associated with a construction project.

Work may involve a variety of substances commonly found on construction sites such as form oil, grease, curing compounds, gasoline, diesel fuel, and ready-mixed concrete.
