We would need a minimum of two months to find you a position, but the longer you give us the more time we will have to find you a really good HR internship.

Will my HR Internship be paid?

Our Australian HR internships are all unpaid positions designed to give you some really good experience for between 2 and 6 months to kick-start your career.

The fact internships are unpaid does allow us to find our students really good positions, where the focus is on your learning. So we can customise your internship to what you would like and you will have your internship position confirmed before you left the UK.
