Trusted by thousands of partners

We’ve been extremely happy with the service we’ve received so far. And I say “so far” because we have every intention of hosting another graduate through the program.

Associate, De Stefano & Co

(Gradability) reliably provides an outstanding service in placing students with our organisation. The placement process is consistently managed well and high-quality and committed students are provided. We have partnered with (Gradability) for a number of years now and are consistently delighted by their excellent communication and service.

We have worked with the team at (Gradability) for several years now and they have always been professional, efficient and the students are of high calibre.

Cluster Director of Human Resources, W Brisbane

Hood Sweeney has happily hosted (…) interns with Gradability and we have found it a professional and easy-to-use process. We have hosted quality candidates, some of whom have impressed to the point where we have been able to offer them opportunities for permanent employment within our business. We would recommend this service to any employer who values the professional development of interns.

People & Culture Manager, Hood Sweeney

Gradability made the whole process easy and seamless, and the intern was a great fit. After four months from starting with our Company, the intern progressed to a full-time employee who continues to strive within the organisation.

FAQ About Hosting Interns
What is required of a Host Company?
To participate as a Host Company, you’ll need to commit to the following placement requirements:
  • Duration: 3 days per week for 12 weeks
  • Hours: Minimum of 24 hours per week
  • Mentorship: An experienced IT mentor (with qualifications or 5 years of IT knowledge)
Additionally, you’ll need to provide:
  • A safe and supportive business environment
  • On-the-job supervision and training by a qualified IT supervisor or mentor
  • Necessary workspace and technology (computer or laptop). If remote work is required, clarification on equipment provision is essential.
  • Regular feedback sessions (at week 6 and end of 12 weeks) with your account manager
  • Completion of our Placement Description Form, aiding in candidate matching
  • Utilisation of our provided Training Plan template
What kind of interns can you provide?

Our interns are graduates and undergraduates from Australian universities eager to apply their technical knowledge in practical settings. They seek to enhance their professional experience and contribute fresh perspectives to your projects.

What can interns do?

Interns bring current knowledge and innovative ideas to your workplace. Involving them in meetings, projects, and relevant shadowing opportunities not only enriches their learning experience but also cultivates Australia’s future workforce and stimulates economic growth. For more on intern capabilities, contact us at hostanintern@gradability.com.au

Can I mentor more than one intern at once?

Certainly! Many of our host companies host multiple interns simultaneously. Ensure you have adequate physical space and resources to provide each intern with appropriate supervision and relevant work experiences aligned with their field of study.

Do I have to pay the intern?

Interns participating in Vocational Placements as part of their qualification (i.e. Professional Year Program or GAP Program) can legally work unpaid under Fair Work, offering a cost-effective solution for your business. This approach also helps develop the next generation of professionals, fosters innovation, and provides valuable work experience.

How can I operate an internship program for my business?

We pride ourselves in making this process easy and straight forward for you.

Here is how it works:

Can my intern sign a confidentiality agreement?

All interns and host companies sign a Training Agreement with a detailed confidentiality clause. If additional confidentiality measures are required to protect your business, we can accommodate those needs without issue.

What if I want to hire my intern?

If you decide to hire your intern after their placement, there’s no recruitment or transfer fee payable. They will seamlessly transition into a regular employee role and should be compensated accordingly.

Why should we source an intern from Gradability?

Choosing an intern through Gradability ensures compliance with the Fair Work Act and adherence to our RTO quality assurance framework. As the market leader with over 16 years of experience, we specialise in matching your business needs with the right interns, focusing on mutual goals and successful outcomes.
