This is a 6-month internship for someone passionate about learning the hands-on skills needed for a successful media career in content creation for wellness, beauty, fashion, and lifestyle. You would be in our inner-city Alexandria office 2 days/week. You’d be supporting and learning from our in-house Content Team with tasks including, but not limited to:

  • Blog and other content writing
  • Social captions and posts – stills, video storyboarding and scheduling
  • Ideation and brainstorming of new trends, content ideas, video content, healthy recipe development, etc.
  • Content shoots (video, stills, etc.)
  • Visual research for graphics
  • Research for articles, blogs, and social media posts
  • Support in coordinating projects and events as needed


  • Any prior study or previous experience in content creation, content writing, blog writing, journalism, health or nutrition, and social media would be highly regarded
  • A passion for, and general knowledge of, what’s trending in wellness, health, beauty, fashion and lifestyle content is essential
  • A current student or recently graduated student who is keen to apply their learnings in the real world with valuable hands-on experience
  • Are enthusiastic and keen to learn on the job
  • Open to taking direction and learning from it
  • Canva knowledge highly regarded
  • WordPress and Adobe Suite experience a bonus
  • A precise and careful eye for detail
  • Excellent written and verbal communications skills which includes perfect spelling and grammar

This is a rare opportunity to be part of a hard-working, committed creative team in one of Australia’s leading wellness businesses. You’ll be learning from experienced content creators and collaborating on exciting projects. We can be flexible to work around your hours if you’re studying, but ideally, we’re looking for someone who can commit to 2 workdays a week.

All equipment required will be provided so you just need to bring yourself! At the satisfactory completion of the internship, we will be happy to provide references and sign any university requirement forms. Many of our previous interns have ended up becoming permanent members of the team so there is an exciting opportunity available for individual growth within our company if the candidate suits.

Note: This is an unpaid internship.
