We’re on the hunt for interns to help out in the Walkleys Sydney office in 2015. If you know a bright final-year student studying journalism or communications full-time at university, this could be a great opportunity.

We can offer a small living allowance for students from outside the greater Sydney area. 2-3 week commitment, preferably full-time, part-time considered. Apply online.


Please note:

The Walkley Foundation’s internships are classified as ‘vocational placements’. We therefore require that those applying are currently enrolled in an approved educational institution. Each placement must be done as a requirement of an education of training course as per the Fair Work Act. Unfortunately, if you do not meet the above criteria, you are not able to apply for an unpaid internship with us. More information on Vocational Placements is available here.
