CREATE Internship

Build your skills before entering the workplace

The CREATE Internship will help build your confidence, and give you the skills you need to enter the workplace. 

CREATE, in consultation with young people, has developed the CREATE Internship to support young people in their job readiness journey. Job seekers have voiced concerns about feeling a lack of confidence to enter the workforce and often don’t have the necessary skills that equip them to succeed in a work environment. The CREATE Internship is funded by Hollard Insurance and will provide 3-6 months on the job training with access to a suite of CREATE internal staff training.

The CREATE Internship aims to build the confidence of young people entering the workplace/office environment for the first time.
