Business Interns can assist you in administration, marketing coordination, digital marketing, sales assistance, HRM administration, supply chain management, operations, financial analysis, financial planning etc.

Information Technology Interns can assist you in application development/programming, software testing, business intelligence/analytics, technical support/help desk, networking/server support, project management etc.

According to Fair Work Ombudsman’s guidelines for internship, for unpaid internship to be lawful, businesses need to ensure that the intern is not an employee. Although the intern may do some productive activities during the internship, they are less likely to be considered an employee if there is no expectation or requirement of productivity in the workplace. The main benefit of an unpaid internship should flow to the intern.

If a business is gaining a significant benefit as a result of engaging the intern, this may indicate an employment relationship has been formed. If the purpose of hosting an intern is to get the person to do work to assist with the business outputs and productivity, we recommend that you hire a staff instead under our Career Development Placement Program. We will help you hire experienced, productive and loyal Accounting, Business, IT and Engineering graduates at a reasonable salary of $45K-$55K pa and $0 recruitment fee.

We have been working with over 1,000 reputed host companies of various sizes and industries who have been benefiting immensely from hosting interns since 2006. We hope that you can join them and make a difference too. Please let us know your job requirements and we will present you with a short-list of outstanding interns for interview. Upon successful interview, we will organise the internship training plan and the necessary work experience insurances so that both the parties’ expectations are met, are fully covered for risks and become part of a genuine work experience program that meets the guidelines of Fair Work Ombudsman. We will conduct their performance apprsisals with your help during week six and twelve to make sure that the internship is of mutual benefits.

The natural eagerness of truly serious interns to get into the ‘real world’ and practice some part of what they learned at university make them a genuine asset almost immediately. We guarantee you that you will be satisfied to the utmost with their dedication and eagerness to learn. You have no obligation to offer them a job after completion of internship, but we do encourage you to hire them as employment is the best outcome of the internship and the best thing is that there is no placement fees. In fact, almost 1 in 2 of our interns end up getting employed by the host companies impressed by their talent and commitment.

We look forward to providing you with a star team member! Should you have any queries about hosting an intern, feel free to contact us on 1300 79 80 69.

Trial a young person in your business and get help with wage and training costs

Youth Job PaTH - an Australian Government Initiative
  • Trial a young person for 4 to 12 weeks to find out if they're the right fit for your business.
  • Get $1,000 to help cover the costs of finding the right intern. We charge the equal amount as a placement fee.
  • During the trial, you don't pay the young person. Instead, the Australian Government gives them $200 a fortnight on top of their income support and covers their insurance.
  • If you decide to hire the young person you may be eligible to receive either $6,500 or $10,000.

To be eligible to host an internship, your business must have a reasonable prospect of employment for the intern following the internship. This means you either have a vacancy that needs filling, you will likely have a vacancy following the internship, or you have a regular pattern of recruitment. By delegating your support level tasks to the intern and providing them proper supervision and training when necessary, you and your staff will have extra time to focus on more creative and productive tasks. Thus, you may be able to create a new position for the intern!

Businesses are required to maintain a safe work environment and provide your candidate with a supervisor and an induction appropriate to the activities and workplace of the trial. To make the trial as beneficial as possible for your business and the intern, you should set meaningful and diverse tasks. Currently, we have many enthusiastic and skilled interns available for the follwing roles:

  • Administrative Assistant
  • Sales Assistant
  • Customer Service
  • Retail Assistant
  • IT Assistant
