Short-term placements in Australia

Are you looking for a 2 or 3 month placement in Australia to complete during your summer holiday?

In addition to our longer placements, we also arrange short term placements in Australia every summer. These enable you to gain real life business experience and enjoy some travel down under without taking a full placement year.

Your Short-term placement in Australia

Just to be clear, we’re not talking about working in a bar or cafe like most organisations arrange.

Our programme is for people who want to work in professional businesses and boost their CV with experience in areas such as Sales & Marketing, Finance & accounting, HR, Hospitality, IT, Event Management, Public Relations. You’ll have evenings and weekends off to enjoy exploring Australia but we believe your placement should complement your degree and develop your skills.

Also unlike most other organisations, our short summer placements include your accommodation and food (2 meals per day). Why spend time and stress arranging accommodation when you could be learning new skills at work or enjoying your time off? We include this in the price and make sure the location is convenient for your short-term placement in Australia.

Who can join our short-term placements in Australia?

Short-term placements in Australia are available to people with the following backgrounds:

  • School leavers – people who recently completed high school and want to gain an insight into a particular job before committing to a certain career path. 
  • Undergraduates – university students who want to gain overseas work experience during a summer holiday without taking a full placement year. 
  • Graduates – people wanting to travel and gain experience in their chosen field before finding a full-time job.

If you have a different background then please email your CV to info@placement-year.org so we can check your eligibility. 

Professional training

We ensure your training experience in Australia is professionally managed.

You will have a local work supervisor. This is your main daily contact for any queries about the role you may have. They will ensure your work schedule is prepared, and you will be given your own tasks and responsibilities to give you an insight into your chosen field.

If you work hard and impress your colleagues you may be offered more responsibility. You’ll be given references and a completion certificate at the end of your placement.

Orientations & Staff support

One of our colleagues in Australia will meet you on arrival to welcome you to the programme.

They will take you to your accommodation and show you around your local area. Then you’ll have time to relax, unpack and get some rest before doing your full orientation. We even include a trip to the Blue Mountains!

After completing your orientation you’ll be taken to your host company for an introduction before starting your placement. 

We’ll stay in touch with you to check how you’re getting on and we’re on hand 24/7 for emergencies. We’ll also put you in contact with other people on our programme in Australia so it’s easy to meet up. 

Health and safety

Your safety is our first priority.

We complete comprehensive checks before you arrive and we’ll send you full information about your role and host company as well as your accommodation before you leave home.
