Are the internships paid or unpaid?

The internships provide you with relevant working experience through 100% guaranteed placement, which allows you to develop your essential working skills  Hence, it is usually an unpaid position because the remuneration cost from the host company goes to provide training and coaching for you to develop your employability skills. However, some of the host companies might still be willing to provide a small amount, of allowances such as for travel expenses.

The highlight of this program is to give you a chance to prove to the host manager that you are worth hiring. We do have candidates who end up joining the host company as paid employees during or just after the program!

All Navitas Professional internships are formal work experience arrangements, are part of an education program, and meet the Fair Work Act 2009 requirements for lawful unpaid internships.
