We welcome applications from university students and recent graduates expressing an interest in undertaking an internship at the Australian Embassy, Rome. Internships can last between 4 and 12 weeks and will involve working at the Embassy a minimum of 10-15 hours per week. There will be an initial trial period of 4 weeks.

Internships allow university students with an interest in Australia’s international relations to gain an insight into the work of the Embassy, and particularly of our Public Diplomacy, Political and Economic branch.

The internship will primarily focus on assisting with managing the Embassy’s social media. Tasks will also involve assisting in organising public diplomacy events, doing research, drafting reports on political and economic developments in Italy, responding to inquiries from Australian departments and from the public.

Internships are unpaid, however interns will receive a small reimbursement for daily expenses. Travel costs, travel and living arrangements as well as travel insurance are the responsibility of the intern.  Internships are open to all nationalities but we require applicants to have a high level of English and at least an intermediate level of Italian. 

To apply for an internship at the Australian Embassy Rome, please email your C.V. and the completed application form to ensuring your name is included in the subject field.
