Internship Applications EXTENDED to 14 April 2019

Are You looking for Paid Work Experience that Counts?

Internship Opportunities are available in: Melbourne, Sydney, Newcastle, Darwin, Canberra, Adelaide, and Tasmania

The Australian Network on Disability runs the Stepping into Program twice a year. Stepping Into is a paid internship program designed specifically for university students with disability to assist you to gain meaningful work experience in your area of their study.

 Stepping Into intern Amelia Gates stands in between her colleague Alicia (left) and supervisor Beverley Jefferson (right).

‘I don’t have the same concerns going into this new job that I did before I completed Stepping Into. I now feel confident in my ability to manage any pain and not hide my disability from co-workers,’  said Amelia

Students learn about the recruitment process, job interviews and if successful, gain exposure to degree-relevant work in a forward-thinking organisation. Internships generally last four to eight weeks (with the opportunity for flexible work hours to manage your disability or other commitments). The AND programs team are available throughout the entire process for support, advice and guidance on how to ensure your internship is a success.

This cohort our participating members include:

  • Arup Group
  • Australia Post
  • Comcare
  • Department of Social Services
  • IAG, Gilbert and Tobin Lawyers
  • and Office of the Children’s Guardian
