Neon Black/Internship / Work Experience/Unpaid

Sydney - CBD/Metro/Inner East & West

Posted 14 Feb 2020

Closes 15 Mar 2020

If you’re looking for an average Communications Internship where you do coffee runs, build media lists and sit on Facebook all day pretending to learn and do stuff, HOLD UP. Go back. Neon Black is not the place for you…


If you classify yourself as a lover of words, a dedicated talker and have a passion for news and media, Neon Black could be your next stop. And, if you happen to be studying Communications/PR and aren’t afraid to get your hands dirty this could be a match made in heaven.


Neon Black is a creative communications agency. Since opening our doors, we’ve done some pretty awesome things, and have breathed life into some killer campaigns for our portfolio of clients. Launched one of the biggest mental health pro-social movements? We did it. Hung out with some of the world’s biggest names in adult entertainment. We did it. Made battery power and the Tesla Powerwall a household name in Australia? We did it (and are still doing it…).


We offer a range of different things tailored to our client’s needs, including PR, events, social, marketing and consumer activations. If you work with us, not only will you get awesome exposure across a vast range of activities, but you’ll also get to work on an even broader range of industries. Beauty, tech, renewable energy, food, corporate, health, lifestyle and consumer clients are all part of our repertoire here at Neon Black. 



  • Assist with media sample and press send-outs 

  • Draft and edit copy 

  • Develop media and guest lists

  • Research information

  • Support the team with media monitoring and reporting

  • Assist with any other required tasks required

Our ideal intern will join us 2 days per week for a 12 week period. As this internship is a non-paid role, you will ideally be able to undertake this internship through a university/college placement, whether that’s for credit or as an external activity. We do offer flexibility around your schedule. An allowance of $40 per week will be paid to the intern to cover travel and lunch expenses. 


You’ll learn lots, have a fair few laughs, and get to give cuddles to our office dog Alfred. You’ll also get to work closely with the founders of Neon Black, our stellar Account Management team and will have exposure to a number of clients and areas of the business. 


If you think you’ve got what it takes, are dedicated, driven, passionate and focused we want to get to know you! Holla at us, this position is available immediately.
