MEDIA RELEASE: March 30 2022: Leading strategic insights consultancy Nature today announced a new, exclusive paid internship program aimed at young Australians looking to break into the insights and consultancy industry.
The eight-week immersive program offers roles working primarily with Nature’s consulting team as well as offering experience with the data and analytics team. There is no set intake date, with the program remaining flexible based on applicants’ university or working schedules.
Nature Partner, Justin Connally, said: “We’re incredibly excited to launch our new internship program and begin conversations with universities, students, recruiters, and even those looking to change up their existing careers.
“In the past we’ve had great experiences working with universities to bring in new talent and this will act as another pathway for that discovery. Nature is a people-first agency, and we believe this is the best way to foster and nurture the great talent that walks through our doors.
“By allowing them to get on the tools from day one and work on reports, partake in brainstorms, shape strategy, get a view on commercial problems and more, candidates get the real experience of a full work week. A hands-on work approach for new people in the industry offers a better perspective for career potential and helps them realise where they really want to be and what the really want to be doing. It gives the best feel for the industry possible,” he said.
Nature Director, Emma Tommasini, added: “Fresh out of uni, it can often be difficult to know exactly what you want to do, or more specifically what a career in research and insights looks like.
“Graduate programs can be anywhere from one to two years, and that’s often before you fully start your role. We want to give candidates a chance to dip their toes in the water and see if the role is a right for them before committing to a more long-term arrangement.
“Of course, we also provide successful candidates with mentoring and feedback throughout the program which can be advice for the future or, if they love the work and are interested in a career, then it could be a full-time opportunity. We believe this program is a step-forward for not only Nature, but for the research industry as a whole,” she said.
