Students and Interns

Student Placements

At SSI we have a regular intake of university and TAFE students for placements in various areas of the organisation. If you are interested in doing a placement at SSI, ensure that you submit an application well in advance of a possible starting date to allow time to properly consider your application.

Internships

Internships can suit recently-graduated, almost-graduated, or postgraduate students who want to build their industry exposure outside of the course requirements of an educational institution. Interns generally progress time-limited projects or scope work for larger projects in which they have an interest, supervised by a senior member of SSI staff.
