Paid Work Experience for University Students with Disabilities



It is incredibly lazy to just reproduce the content of an email and call it a blog post.

So that is exactly what I am going to do 🙂

This email came in to our Disability Advisors, and I thought students with disabilities would want to know about it.

Good afternoon,

Just a quick reminder that the application for PwC Summer program will be closing next week. If you could please forward below information to students with disability.

Are you a university student with disability looking for paid work experience that counts?

The Australian Network on Disability (AND) is offering students with disability the opportunity to participate in PwC’s prestigious Summer 2018/2019 Vacation Program as part of Stepping Into.

Placements are for penultimate year students based in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Newcastle or Brisbane and cover a range of disciplines including Assurance, Consulting, Technology and Tax & Legal. For more information about the program, visit PwC’s website.

What is Stepping Into?

Stepping into is a paid internship program designed for university students with disability who want to gain paid, hands-on work experience in their chosen field of study.

Students benefit by gaining valuable experience in their desired field of work, and by having the opportunity to develop professional networking and employability skills in a leading Australian organisation.

Am I eligible?

  • Applicants must be in the penultimate (second last) year of an undergraduate or postgraduate degree
  • Applicants must identify as having disability
  • International students may apply pending they have full time working rights within Australia
  • Applicants from all degree areas are encouraged to apply

How do I apply?

To be considered for the program, complete this online application form by 2nd March 2018.

Please keep your Stepping Into application form generic (not tailored to PwC). If successfully shortlisted, you will be required to submit an application form directly to PwC.

The team at AND will inform you of the outcome of your application in late March.

Who do I contact if I have more questions?

If you’d like to find out more, please visit the AND website, email, or call 1300 36 36 45 to speak to a member of the Stepping Into team.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

The Programs Team (Philip Zamora & Isabel Heiner)
