Intern Courses

Interns are office trainees or volunteers who support administration, sales and marketing teams with typing, filing, data entry, photocopying and graphic design. They receive on-the-job training and are often employed permanently at the end of their internship.

As an intern you could be answering the phone, photocopying reports, collecting the mail, designing a graphic for social media, or scheduling marketing emails. Being resourceful and willing to help out when things get frantic will improve your changes of securing a permanent role.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do Interns earn?

In Australia, junior administration officers generally earn $982 per week ($51,064 annual salary) before tax. This is a median figure for full-time employees and should be considered a guide only. As you gain experience and secure a full-time role in administrative support you can expect a higher salary. It is important to remember that some interns are not paid.

There are currently 282,400 Administration Officers employed in Australia right now and this job role grew very strongly over the last 5 years. Administration Officers work in all industries and employment sectors — from small business through to large corporations.
