Summer Vacation Program


Top banner

If you’re in the penultimate year of your university studies and want to know what it’s like to work to work at Australia’s biggest telecommunications and technology company, our Summer Vacation Program is for you.

Our paid 12-week Program has been specifically designed to give you hands-on experience, and immersive development and learning opportunities. It also feeds into our Telstra Graduate Program, which means if you perform well in the Program, you’ll be considered for early offers and will join us when you graduate.

You’ll find additional information on the pathways options available to you in the below pages. We have office locations in most major cities, with most roles will be based in Melbourne, Sydney and Queensland. Regrettably, not all locations will offer places in all disciplines.

Throughout the length of the Program, you’ll be supported by one of our current graduates and be exposed to the cutting edge and innovative work our teams are doing in areas such as Internet of Things (IoT) 5G, Cyber Security, Artificial Intelligence, and other emerging technologies.

We also value diversity and are committed to creating inclusive experiences for all our people and candidates. We encourage everyone to bring their whole selves to work and use technology to enable flexibility.

So, if you’re ready to be challenged, want to learn from the best people in their field, and are interested to find out what it’s like to work in an agile environment, make sure you apply for our Summer Vacation Program.

Applications open: July 7, 2020.

Applications close: July 27, 2020.
