Business Internship - SME Special Projects


Oceania Equity is uniquely positioned to give new graduates the rare opportunity to take their theoretical learnings and implement them practically in a real and tangible business, and see the results of their actions in real time.

This is not intended to be a hands off observation of the workings of a business. The internship will have a strong focus on real deliverables, accountabilities and responsibilities, to best prepare the intern for a career in a competitive market.

The successful intern will be placed in a sponsoring company from Oceania Equity’s portfolio and paired up with a mentor with whom they can interact daily. 


Industrial Plastics (www.industrialplastics.com.au) was established in 1971 and is now recognised as one of the largest manufacturers of custom fabricated plastics products in the country. 

Industrial Plastics has thrived in a market that demands the highest levels of professionalism and the highest quality of product. Their ability to meet these high demands is aided by current accreditation to ISO9001 by SGS Certification. 


A Business Analyst Intern, focusing on Special Projects, is responsible for delivering short term projects that have been identified as potential growth areas for their sponsoring business. The learning curve will be steep as success in the role will require multi faceted knowledge of business. The position will be very hands on.

The first week of the internship will be on the job training to familiarise the intern with the specifics of the sponsoring business. This training will cover the fundamentals of business, IE: Sales & Marketing, Finance, Operations and Human Resources.

After the first week of training, the intern will be presented with a special project pipeline and be given the choice of their first special project. The special project pipeline will contain projects of varying difficulty, ranging from creating a new brochure, to developing and executing a plan to gain market share for a given product offering. 


Fundamentally, a paid internship with Oceania Equity gives a person the rare opportunity to see the results of their actions. This is a critical benefit to someone just starting their career as it provides real time learning, real time feedback, and the potential to achieve short term wins.

Other specific benefits include:

A true holistic experience - internships commonly focus on one small fraction of a business, ranging from accounts receivable to SEO marketing. This internship allows you to see all business functions and get a true understanding of how they interconnect.

Real ownership for the real world - after the first week of familiarisation training, there will be no looking over someone's shoulder. You will own the projects, and if they are delivered successfully, own the win. 


The successful intern will have recently completed a relevant degree. They will be driven by a desire to learn new things and therefore have a strong ability to use the tools available to self educate and solve problems.

This is a real opportunity to get out what is put in, the opportunities made available during the internship and at the end of the internship will be a result of the effort that is put in. For the paid component of the internship, there is a requirement of 38 hours on-site each week at the sponsoring business.
