Internship for First Nations Students

A pathway to success

Our Internship for First Nations students are an opportunity to gain industry work experience whilst you’re still studying. This is your chance to take part in the important work we do and discover how we solve problems with our collaborative approach. You’ll work on client engagements, attend networking events to build business relationships and take part in projects that are making an impact and building trust in society

Joining the Firm as part of a cohort, our internships allow you to enhance your skills complementing your studies and be on a pathway to potentially join our Graduate Program.
No matter what degree you are studying or what year you are in, our Internships offer you valuable career experience at the heart of our business. 

The program runs over three to eight weeks (length will vary across our offices) and includes full time work experience during the university break where you will: 

  • Develop your skills through one-on-one coaching and mentoring
  • Undertake challenging client work and engagements with potentially broad social impacts
  • Attend networking events
  • Expand your professional and personal networks with like-minded peers
  • Expand your career potential with a globally respected organisation

PwC and PwC’s Indigenous Consulting (PIC) have a joint commitment to improving outcomes for First Nations people and communities through employment and building careers.
