Get a head start on your career

Mannkal’s traditional internship experience now takes the form of Advanced Industry Placements. Following successful completion of a study tour, top performing scholars who continue to demonstrate leadership potential have the opportunity to compete for an intensive, tailored industry placement with our prestigious partners throughout Australia and New Zealand.

This is a unique program designed specifically for each distinct scholar and host, individually developed to best match their particular interests, skills and objectives.

To be eligible, students need to significantly exceed expectations in their participation in the Leadership Development Program and, upon their return from their study tour, continue to demonstrate outstanding skills and attitudes necessary for success. The placement offers top performing scholars an opportunity to significantly increase their experience and skills set, develop a meaningful body of work and build a valuable network of contacts. The experience will provide the scholar with rigorous, real-life experience and ultimately a launching pad for their careers.  

Each successful applicant undergoes a tailored training and education program with Mannkal to ensure they have the necessary skills to make a valuable contribution in their placement. The scholar and host are introduced prior to arrival to discuss expectations and objectives, and a specific program of mutual benefit may be agreed on in advance. The scholar then joins the host organisations for an agreed period (usually 6-10 weeks) during which they will engage in meaningful work.

These placements will occur on an annual basis during mid-year and end-of year semester breaks.
