Mid-Career Professionals


“My internship is like having a golden ticket into the world of business.”

– Nawar Jallo,  CPB Contractors intern

What is CareerSeekers?

Bridging careers.
Rebuilding lives.

We partner with leading organisations to create paid internships for recently arrived refugees and asylum seekers who are looking to restart professional careers in Australia. Internships provide valuable local experience and enable the intern to develop a professional network – both of which are often barriers to new Australians accessing professional employment.

Internships last 12 weeks and can commence at any point during the year, after participants have successfully completed the preparatory stages of the CareerSeekers program.

Who is the CareerSeekers Community?

There is no cost to participants, but interns are expected to fully participate in the program.

Currently, the program is open to individuals who are:

  • Asylum seeker or recently arrived refugee with English language proficiency suitable for a professional workplace
  • A bachelor degree from a university in their country of origin
  • Professional experience in their country of origin
  • Fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (consistent with the current policies of many employers regarding interning at their offices and sites)
