Vacation Work Program

Each summer holiday (December - February) ChemCentre offers paid work placements for university students in their third or honours year of chemistry. 

The ChemCentre vacation work program will provide you with a unique experience, plenty of challenges and an opportunity to use the theories and practical skills that you have developed at university. On top of this you will be working with a team of people who will ensure this time is memorable.

Placements are advertised via the WA Universities' Careers Hubs and via ChemCentre's Linked In, Twitter and Facebook.

Applications open in November. To be eligible you must be an Australian Citizen or hold an appropriate working visa.
