BirdLife Australia Vacancy: Internships - Australia (Victoria)

BirdLife Australia offers a limited number of internship placements each year. We work in partnership with a number of Australia’s leading universities and other partners to offer a select number of undergraduate, post-graduate and early career placements within our projects and departments.

As an intern, you will work as part of a team in the areas of research, conservation, marketing and communications or fundraising in accordance with your field of study. Each internship is formulated to provide you with valuable experience and introduce you to the challenges and opportunities you will face in the working world.

Our placements offer practical experience into the daily operations of a not-for-profit conservation organisation and opportunities to work side by side with BirdLife Australia’s staff, many of whom are leaders in their fields of expertise. Our interns come from a diverse range of backgrounds, bringing with them fresh insights that add value to our organisation.

All current internship positions are advertised below. If you are interested in a volunteering with BirdLife Australia at any other time, please contact our Threatened Bird Network:
