Australia is a welcoming, laidback and friendly country, with famous beaches and busy cities. Experience everything it has to offer with one of our Australia internships.
Arranging your own placement in Australia can be daunting and difficult from the other side of the world. However, we make the process simple and stress free.
We arrange high quality placements with a range of businesses and luxury hotels. You could choose a marketing placement and work in an elite agency or assist, develop and plan events at a local hotel. These and many other choices are yours.
After offering you a place on our Australia programme, we will match your skills and previous experience to the most suitable employers to ensure you get the best Australia internship possible. This personal approach means you receive the experience and training you want and the host company receives someone with the skills they need.
Durations are available from 2+ months and start dates flexible all year round.
Currently we offer placements in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
Sydney is home to some of the world’s most iconic landmarks, such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House. Melbourne is known for it’s laid back atmosphere and bustling cafe culture. Brisbane is located on the infamous gold cost, a surfing mecca.
