If you are on a student visa, you can work part time (20 hours per week) and if you are on a working holiday visa you can work part-time while studying or full time after you finish your course. Our Work Ready Program is a free service that will help you in your search for work.
We have teamed up with Australia’s largest employment agency for working holiday makers, if you have a working holiday visa become a member and receive all their services including access to paid work.
If you want to get valuable work experience in your chosen profession we can organise a professional internship for you. You will need to be on a Working Holiday visa or meet the eligibility requirements for a Special Program Visa.
