DoT Vacation Student program

The department’s Vacation Student employment program is a fantastic opportunity for students studying at an Australian university to experience what is like to work in an organisation that delivers a wide range of projects and programs while gaining on-the-job learning and training opportunities.

Our Vacation program takes place during your summer university break and commencement dates can be modified to meet individual needs.

  • Accounting/finance
