We partner with leading organisations to create paid internships for asylum seekers or recently arrived refugees who are looking to restart their professional careers in Australia. Internships provide valuable local experience and access to industry networks – both of which are often barriers to new Australians accessing professional employment.
Internships provide participants with entry-level roles in their relevant sector, helping them to identify the appropriate transition path to longer-term opportunities.
Internships last 12 weeks and can commence at any point during the year after participants have successfully completed the preparatory stages of the program.
There is no cost to take part in the program, however participants need to actively join in and attend all workshops and events.
Currently, the program is open to those who meet the following criteria:
· Asylum seeker or recently arrived refugee with English suitable for a professional workplace
· A bachelor degree from a university in their country of origin
· Professional experience in their country of origin
· Based in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane or Adelaide
