It’s not often that you get offered the opportunity to work on a tropical island in a 5 star resort. This programme is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for many people and HTE Internships can make it happen!
The hospitality industry is the perfect for an Australian Working Holiday. The longest you can work for one employer is up to six months. So HTE Internships can place you for 6 or 12 months (two consecutive six month jobs).
HTE Internships can make your dream of visiting Australia a reality in the most cost effective and stress free way. Please see below for programme details, costs, job descriptions and location details.
One of our most popular options is splitting your 12 month hospitality placement between two of the top travel destinations in the world.
Start your Hospitality Internship in Australia or New Zealand and combine some travel in between placements. You could be working on an Australian Tropical Island or in the Sydney CBD or in a 4 or 5 star New Zealand Hotel.
Instead of two full placement fees for the different programmes, we have combined the two programmes into an affordable package that will see you working in two of the most sought-after destinations in the world!
See the Australia & New Zealand Split Hospitality Internship page for full details on this unique programme.
