Internships and Placements
As conservators who have been working in this industry for decades, we’d like to see the field continue to grow and prosper. In developing the field for future generations, new conservators are required. Endangered Heritage has endeavoured to make the field of conservation more accessible through our various internships and placements opportunities. Whether you are looking to explore an interest in the field or are an existing student wishing to expand your knowledge and skills, we want to help you in your journey.
To express an interest in any of the opportunities listed below, please contact us via email as well as through your university or school.
Each year Endangered Heritage accepts interns from Universities across Australia. Currently, we have interns in different work specialisations, at varying points of their education. It is expected that basic science units for lab-based safety training and work have been accomplished prior to the application.
Students must be enrolled in a work placement unit as part of their degree at any University. We disapprove of the exploitation of young people doing "free work experience", work which does not contribute in some way towards their degree, and hence, we will only take enrolled students. We are proud to have mentored all our interns to achieve High Distinctions at the completion of their unit, we take our mentoring role seriously because we are only as good as the people we train.
