I am launching a new student internship program in 2020.
The program will provide work experience and insight into the operations of a Senator’s office for interested university students.
There are three internship periods available in 2020:
Applications are now open for period 1 & 2, 2020.
The program will run for ten weeks, one full day per week in the electorate office in South Melbourne. Other duties outside the office will be included, and will work around the interns’ availability.
Details of potential tasks to be undertaken are included in Annex A.
At the conclusion of the successful completion of the program, interns will receive a written reference, subject to performance.
The internship is unpaid and conducted consistent with the rules of the parliament. There should be no expectation that any internship will result in future paid employment.
Interested applicants should email a CV of no more than two pages and a one page cover letter addressing the following three criteria:
Submissions should be made via email to: [email protected]
Submission must be made by midday Friday 14 February, and should specify availability/preference for internship periods 1 and/or 2.
Queries can be made via the above email address, or by phone to the office – 9690 2201.
