Imagine the Possibilities

We have great stories to tell, and we need someone who can help us tell them. and That’s why we want you to join us as an Intern!

At Jacobs, we are changing the shape of Victoria and we’d like you along for the journey. As a Journalist Intern in Jacobs, your role will involve informing sales material, pursuit teams, market research and analysis with the stories of our people, their values and achievements. Come and help Jacobs create a more connected and sustainable world.

About the opportunity

The Journalist Intern will work within the Sales Operations team, which binds our professional sales team to our operations team by developing and supporting winning value propositions with critical evidence. The opportunity will be for a 3-month period where you will be required for 3 days each week.

Partnering with our sales leads and technical specialists you’ll interview people, conduct research and translate important concepts into compelling sales and marketing materials as required—from presentations, capability statements and videos through to complex proposal submissions.

Juggling people and their time, your focus is always on the end goal delivery of the final product. The role requires great time management, ability to work with different personalities, and very strong written and verbal communications skills. Ability to plan is a must.

This role provides an excellent basis for any career involving communications, sales marketing, or business development. You’ll learn the corporate environment, commercial constructs, and the relationship-based sales process. At Jacobs you’ll also touch on a wide variety of industries and learn the intricacies across each. We also have many special projects going on that you’ll be able to help out with – most are game-changing within Jacobs and the industry.
