Employment & Intern Opportunities


The CIS accepts applications for internships twice a year.

  • Applications will open in April for Winter internships to start work in June/July
  • Applications will open in September for Summer internships to start work in late Jan/Feb

A minimum of 15 days is required for successful completion of the internship. The internships are unpaid and can be worked for a minimum of 2 days a week and up to 5 days a week.  To ensure you get the most out of the experience you must be able to work in our offices in Sydney.

Selected interns will work within one of our research programs – Economics, Education or Culture, Prosperity and Civil Society.  We also offer internships in Media and Events Management.
