  • University Partnership Employment Program

    Our University Partnership Employment Program (UPEP) provides opportunities for motivated university students to do work you can’t do anywhere else – work that is meaningful, diverse, and challenging – on a casual basis around your field of study.

    What we offer

    Under this program, we can offer you:

    • an opportunity to do real work in a professional organisation, as part of a program that has been purposely designed to support your study commitments
    • work that involves research, administration and business support relevant to a variety of disciplines suited to students studying business, commerce, law, design, economics, project management, information technology, marketing, or statistics
    • a casual contract with flexible work arrangements that provide a balance between work and university studies.
