We know how hard it is to get a start in our increasingly competitive media industry, so we’re here to help.
The Walkley Foundation offers practical industry experience in a professional environment – both in-house and at our rolling series of events and awards.
Internship opportunities are open to final-year student in a journalism, media and communications, public relations, digital media or photojournalism degree.
If you have a can-do attitude and want to boost your skills, come and join us – it could get you noticed by some of the biggest names in the industry!
Depending on the time of year, interns assist with the marketing, communications, social media and event operations for a range of projects in our key program areas.
Interns, we want you!
We’re on the hunt for interns to help out in the Walkleys’ Sydney office in 2017. If you know a bright final-year student studying journalism or communications full-time at university, this could be a great opportunity.
Normally it’s a 2-3 week commitment, preferably full-time, part-time considered. These internships are unpaid.
May 2017: We are currently seeking a digital intern for four weeks. You could end up helping with social media, our email newsletter, the Walkley website, the Walkley Magazine on Medium or event marketing. Contact Barbara Blackman for details on how to apply — we’ll be looking for strong writing samples and evidence of relevant digital or social media skills.
We also have periodic opportunities in our Brisbane office.
The fine print: 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.
