How to apply

If you are an eligible student and wish to apply for a period of work experience, please download a Work Experience Application Pack (388KB) below.

Complete the required details, ensuring that you have specified an area and date period for the work experience.

Please note: all applications for work experience are to be initiated through Human Resources. The student should not contact a work area or supervisor directly.

Email your application

We prefer that completed application packs are returned via email to Clearly label the email subject with "Work Experience Application".

The earlier you are able to return this completed pack, the more likely we will be able to assist with your request for Work Experience.

Upon return of the completed package, we will check student eligibility and then assist in finding a suitable work area for the specified time period and notify you of the outcome.
