Internships & Community Employment

A few general points about internships to keep in mind:

  • Do read all specifications before applying for internship posts, as they vary widely in duration, paid/unpaid status, formality of structure, etc. The principle of an internship is that there is a fair exchange of learning/training by an organisation and work/assistance contributed by the intern, over a defined period. Agreeing terms of an internship in writing prior to commencement is recommended for both parties.
  • JobsPlus is a new Dept.of Employment initiative providing employment opportunities to long-term unemployed individuals. * Please note: JobBridge ceased operations in August 2017.
