At the CCC, we recognise the strategic value in recruiting and providing opportunities for new talent, at student and graduate levels, as a means of investing in the future of our workforce and future leaders.

We provide opportunities for professional growth and development through our Early Career Pathways Program — Internship Program, Graduate Program, and Professional Practice Placements.

Each year, the CCC offers paid internships to students who are currently in their third or fourth year of undergraduate study. We offer placements in several disciplines, including:

  • Law

  • Financial investigations

  • Intelligence analytics

  • Data analytics

  • Research

Program benefits

Internship placements are offered for a 12-week period, starting in November, with an additional 4-week placement offered in June. The 16-week, full-time, placements provide students with the opportunity to gain invaluable experience while rotating through our Crime and Corruption divisions.

How to apply

Applications for the Internship Program will open in September/October. See our vacancies page to make your application.

Each intake will vary, depending on business requirements at the time.

Put your tertiary knowledge into real-world practise via the CCC’s Graduate Program. We empower and challenge our graduates by providing opportunities to work in your chosen profession; learn from some of the brightest minds in the industry; be exposed to, and participate in, industry specific projects; and rotate through various teams within our Crime and Corruption divisions.

Program benefits

Graduates will be offered two-year placements with the CCC, with the opportunity to gain discipline-specific experience in a chosen field. Opportunities to broaden your experience by working in multi-disciplinary teams, and the opportunity to participate in multiple inhouse learning and development programs, is also available to graduates.

How to apply

Applications for the Internship Program are open at various times throughout the year. See our existing vacancies to make your application.

Each intake will vary depending on business requirements at the time.
