Location: CoDesign Studio Office @ the Collingwood Arts Precinct

Time Commitment: Two days a week (during business hours, 9am-5pm) for 12 weeks, from Monday 6 November to early February 2018.
Due to the Christmas and NY holidays the 12 weeks stretches out to February. Whilst we understand applicants may have other commitments over the summer we also rely on intern help, particularly for specific events. We appreciate people being upfront about upcoming leave during the application process as it will not automatically count against you, we just need to be aware in advance.

  • (All interns) – Develop an understanding of CoDesign’s programs, including tools, methods, processes, administrative and operational systems;

  • Assist with the development of graphic material, website updates, multimedia, project sheets and other marketing collateral
  • Be involved with documenting CoDesign’s project toolkits

  • You’re independent and motivated
  • You like to work on a range of projects and tasks
  • Are passionate about community development
  • You’re a good communicator – both written and verbally
  • Are flexible and hard working
  • You like working as part of a team

Perhaps think again if:

  • You want architectural or design experience – our projects focus more on people, less on drawings.
  • You’re only interested in projects. Interns will work on a range of activities, events and administration.
  • You are not in the Melbourne area. This position is based in our office in Collingwood.
