Work experience and university placements

Natural Resources South East (through DEWNR) offers work experience placements for secondary and tertiary students.  

Work experience placements are a gain insight and experience in a career in natural resources management. Whether you want to be outdoors, in the office or a mixture of both, there is a variety of career paths in NRM in areas such as:

  • ecology
  • marine science
  • land management
  • agriculture
  • administration
  • finance
  • policy
  • project management
  • community engagement
  • media and communications
  • Aboriginal engagement

If you are interested in a career in NRM, conservation or the environment, you will find a work experience placement with us valuable.

Placements depend on available opportunities and are assessed on a case-by-case basis, usually by the manager of the relevant work area.
