Budding Talents Recruitment (STUDYANDWORK) is a unique career management agency that helps the young jobseekers to enter the industry by tapping into their skills to meet the staffing needs of Australian companies cost-effectively and efficiently. We are working with the representatives of the Department Of Employment to achieve the same under their new initiative, PaTH Internship.

What is a PaTH internship?

You can host a young person as an intern in your business by taking part in a PaTH internship placement. Hosting an intern is an opportunity to find out if they are a good fit for your team and suitable for ongoing employment while offering them valuable work experience. Internships run for between 4 and 12 weeks and the interns work for 30 to 50 hours per fortnight to prove their skills.

What are the costs of hosting an internship?

Hosting an intern has no financial costs to you. Interns are unpaid by your business as they get income support payment from the government The intern is covered by insurance purchased by the Australian Government through the Department of Employment. If you decide to employ your intern, you may be eligible for a wage subsidy of $6,500 OR $10,000 paid over 26 weeks of employment.

What type of work experience can PaTH interns do?

The type of work experiences an intern can do will vary depending on their skills and experience but it should be structured and meaningful.

We have university graduate interns with Bachelor or Master degree qualification in Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Human Resources, Logistics, Information Technology, Engineering and more.

And, school leaver interns with career interest in Administration, Customer Service, Sales, Retail, Frontline Management, Warehousing and more. We can put them into suitable traineeships so they can study a qualification relevant to their job duties if you decide to hire them after internship.

Is my business eligible to host a PaTH intern?

To be eligible to host an internship, your business must have a reasonable prospect of employment for the intern following the internship. This means you either have a vacancy that needs filling, you will likely have a vacancy following the internship, or you have a regular pattern of recruitment.

Win-win-win situation!!!

You have got nothing to lose but the vacancy. By delegating the support level tasks to the intern and providing them proper supervision and training when necessary, you and your staff will have extra time to focus on more creative and productive tasks. You can make a position available for one of these interns and take part in this exciting internship program that leads to win-win-win situation as it is good for the interns, good for your business and great for Australia's skills-building!
