Internship placements at Oxfam Australia are a fantastic opportunity for students to gain valuable experience in the sector while gaining accreditation towards the completion of relevant studies. Please note that our internships are reserved for students enrolled in Australian universities only. Internships are a three-way formal agreement between Oxfam Australia, the tertiary institution and the student. They are unpaid placements and can be taken up by students at any time throughout the year.
All internship vacancies are advertised through our volunteer database. While we can’t guarantee a place for you, please apply for anything that suits your studies. You are also welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org together with your cover letter and resume if you have a specific set of skills or a particular area of interest in mind.
