Internships

EK's internship program provides the opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students, from a variety of backgrounds, to be involved with the scientific, cultural-natural resource management, and advocacy work that we do. 

For more info on the kind of work that we do, you can check out our projects or campaigns pages, or see what's happening on our blog

If you would like to apply for our internship program please email a current CV, along with a short accompanying letter detailing your skills, interests and availability, to community@environskimberley.org.au - we would love to hear from you. 

 

A few things to consider
  • The application process - After reviewing your application, EK staff will assess the intersection between your interests, experience and availability, and our upcoming project goals. It may take a little while for us to find the right fit but please be patient and we will be in touch.
  • Travel and accommodation - Environs Kimberley is a not-for-profit organisation operating in the remote Kimberley region and costs associated with travelling to, and staying in, Broome can be considerable. We will of course assist where we can but, generally, interns will need to be self sufficient and make their own accommodation, transport and other arrangements outside of work requirements.
  • When to come - Broome has a tropical climate, defined by a wet and a dry season. The wet season generally lasts from November until April, while the dry season runs from May until October. The majority of our on-ground projects are undertaken in the dry season and this may be the best time to consider an internship with Environs Kimberley. 
  • Duration of the internship - This is up to you, but we ask that applicants are able to commit at least one month, or a regular period of time on an ongoing weekly basis, to our internship program. If you have a shorter amount of time we have various volunteer opportunities for you to get involved in.
