Hosting an intern can benefit your business

Internships are becoming a valuable stream for the recruitment of fresh talent. A percentage of our partners elect to welcome interns as permanent members of their teams following their internship period.

Our interns are from international universities whom require an internship to graduate.

Australia’s worldwide reputation as a quality destination to complete an internship is bringing increased numbers from Europe, the UK and the United States. These candidates are studying at some of the best Universities in the world and come with the desire for practical experience and require University credits in their related field of study.

Internships are quickly becoming the bridge between study and work. Taking on an intern is doing a service to the future of today’s student’s as they transform into tomorrow’s workforce.

What do our hosts say?

Our clients have been impressed with the quality of the output and the willingness of the interns to fit into the teams. Over 85% of our host businesses take on multiple interns per year, often starting in one area where they have an “educational” project available and then expanding their intake across different departments.
