Like to know the rules for businesses to take on a Free Intern in Australia? You don’t need a written agreement to take on someone to do voluntary work, but we have done up a letter of engagement to explain the difference between an Intern and an Assistant (employee) under the Fair Work Act.

We supervise the work you do directly to make sure both sides do what they said they would, and manage the expectations of the business owners to make sure they are realistic. After all, this is training in the real world, not in theory. Not about what you could do, show people what you CAN do.
We start you off with an online course that covers all you need to know to maintain ethical and professional standards when using social media and online platforms. Then we induct you into the program by going over the marketing plan for the business you will be working with, so you can hit the ground running.
Our program includes weekly zoom meetings for training and skills development as you need it. We don’t just send you out and leave it to the business owners and get them to train you.
You can learn more from a business owner by watching them do what they do best. Run their business, and convert what Interns do into sales.
We are here to provide training for you so you can be competent enough to practice and get the experience you need to get better at what you want to do.
You get an outline of what you will be doing for the 8-week internship (including a 2-week induction) when you select the business you want to work with, and we help you and the business stick to the plan.
