Victorian Chamber Internship Program

The Victorian Chamber recognise the value that higher education contributes to the Victorian economy by building a highly skilled, adaptive and productive workforce.





We have had feedback from universities, members and recruitment firms which highlights the need for more work experience opportunities. Employers are demanding more work ready graduates and universities are seeking to facilitate these experiences for students.

To help graduates gain the employability skills required by business, we have established the Victorian Chamber internship program.

Key features of the program


The program is designed to encourage and support industry involvement in taking on a university intern.

To encourage industry involvement, Victorian Chamber will provide participating member organisations with a placement contribution of up to $3000 to help support the cost of the student internships.

We will be placing 100 student interns on an annual basis, five of which will be employed by Victorian Chamber to demonstrate our commitment to the program.

Participating members are required to identify a suitable project which provides benefits to their business as well as providing the student intern with a meaningful employment experience and the opportunity to develop new skills.

The program will meet all workplace employment requirements including payment for work undertaken. Student interns will be engaged directly by members of Victorian Chamber. The terms of engagement of a student intern may vary from business to business, however student interns are required to undertake up to 120 hours of paid employment (full time or pro-rata part time). The maximum term of a project is eight weeks.

Members may also decide to continue an employment relationship with a student intern external to the Victorian Chamber internship program.

For employers


There are many benefits for businesses and students who participate in internships, however there are also a number of questions and steps to consider to ensure everyone has a positive experience. When managed successfully, the process of taking on a student intern can add value to your business, and can be a powerful marketing and future recruitment tool.

For students




We are working with our member businesses to support paid student internship opportunities for domestic university students throughout Victoria. Your university is also working with us to help facilitate these opportunities.

For universities


The Victorian Chamber internship program will provide domestic university students with the foundation to build valuable workplace skills. It will also complement university outcomes in giving students a holistic study experience.

In the longer term, internships can also open doors and dialogue between universities and businesses for sharing resources and innovation.

Sydney's ICC wins national infrastructure award





Sydney’s International Convention Centre (ICC Sydney) at Darling Harbour has been named Australia’s best infrastructure project at the Infrastructure Partnerships Australia’s National Infrastructure Awards.

Andrew Constance Minister for Transport and Infrastructure welcomed the award saying the ICC was a jewel in the NSW Government’s infrastructure crown.

“I am extremely proud that this Government has delivered a world class transformation to the Darling Harbour precinct with the stunning International Convention Centre at its heart,” Mr Constance said.

ICC Sydney cements Sydney as a premium choice on the world stage for major events that this nation has never before had the facilities to host.

“The NSW Government remains focused on the delivery of infrastructure that transforms our state and has a positive impact on our economy. The ICC certainly delivers on this.”

The $1.5 billion ICC Sydney was recognised for its design excellence, construction timeline and outstanding financial performance as well as delivering the nation a new and emblematic piece of business events and tourism infrastructure.

The convention centre officially opened in December 2016 and has already hosted over 170 major events including the Fast 4 Tennis Showdown and performances by Keith Urban and Nick Cave. The convention centre is also generating significant international interest with 115 global events confirmed for Sydney over the next few years.
