Internship placements

Internship placements at Oxfam Australia are a fantastic opportunity for students to gain valuable experience in the sector while gaining academic 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.

We accept applications on a limited basis and from tertiary students interested in undertaking an internship with us, but we do not accept a set intake each year.

We do not accept work experience students.

Current vacancies

All internship vacancies are advertised through our volunteer database. Do note, that as we are only able to support a limited number of placements each year and so we can’t guarantee a place for you in advance. We encourage you to apply for any role that may suit your studies or align with your interests.
