The McCusker Centre for Citizenship is inviting applications for skilled student interns between February to May.

The internships allow UWA students to contribute to a project in a community-minded organisation. Interns can bring fresh skills and perspectives to Western Australian organisations for their research, projects and business activities, such as social media, marketing, human resources and data analysis, among others.

As well as connecting talented, motivated UWA students with organisations and agencies working for the benefit of the community, the program gives the interns valuable experience as they begin their careers. Ninety-seven per cent of intern supervisors have recommended the program.

NDS in WA is proud to partner with the McCusker Centre to deliver this award-winning internship program. Through the program, more than 3000 interns have supported projects that benefit the community.

If your organisation has a project or business team that could use an intern, the McCusker Centre wants to hear from you.
