The Aurora Project

Skip to content

The internship provided me with the opportunity for personal growth and was an invaluable learning experience. The nature of the internship was relevant to my future career plans and provided me with valuable knowledge that I can use in the completion of my Law/Arts (International Relations) degree.

Paid placements

Part-time, locum and full-time paid placement opportunities are available through Aurora. You should check the job network for employment opportunities.

In general, we try to propose people for longer-term paid placements who have graduated and/ or who have concluded an unpaid Aurora internship. This gives both the intern and the host organisation an opportunity for a 'try-out' work experience in the area.

If you are interested in paid opportunities, we encourage you to apply for an internship. If you progress to the interview stage, you can mention your interest in an ongoing paid placement, which may eventuate following on from your unpaid internship.

We rely completely on the demand from the host organisations, so it is difficult to know in advance what paid positions may be available.

Alumni network

Participation in the internship program links alumni to Aurora’s extensive network which in turn offers future employment opportunities in the areas of native title, policy and Indigenous affairs.
