Intern opportunities

The ACCC and AER provide opportunities for final-year university students to undertake paid summer internships for up to six weeks.

Summer internships

Our placements provide interns with the opportunity to apply and develop the skills and knowledge they acquire at university in a professional workplace. ACCC interns gain exposure to a Commonwealth Government agency with work that has far-reaching consumer, economic, industry and legal implications.

Regular training and seminar events are included in the program.
