No. Interns Australia is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that represents and supports interns. We promote awareness of the growing prevalence of unpaid internships in Australia and engage with employers, industry bodies, education institutions, government and other stakeholders to effect positive change for interns and the community.
Our logo is an image of an elephant incorporating the letters 'ia'. The logo represents the "elephant in the room" - the thousands of Australian interns and work placement students who work unprotected and unrepresented under Australia's workplace relations system. Our logo was designed by Brooklyn-based illustrator Vincy Cheung.

While advocacy is at the core of what we do at Interns Australia, we do occasionally link students to employers who offer paid and well-structured internships. Interns Australia is in the process of launching an accreditation program that will help students better identify good quality internships.
