Professional Internship Program
Due to COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to suspend new enrolments in our Professional Internship Program from Monday April 6, 2020 until we are confident that it is safe for our interns to return to Host Organisations. We are hopeful that this will be in the second half of 2020.
However, due to increasing demand for internships for the second half of 2020, we are taking expressions of interest now. So if you are interested in completing an internship program at that time, please register your interest here so you can have priority access to the internship opportunities when they return.
Please register your interest here if you are planning to enrol in our Professional Internship Program.

Readygrad specialises in accounting internships, engineering internships, finance internships, HR internships, IT internships, marketing internships and supply chain/logistics internships.
