An exciting opportunity exists to join the Melbourne School of Engineering (MSE) as an Industry Placement Coordinator in the Academic Support Office.

MSE has grown in the number of student internships in industry significantly over the last few years and has ongoing plans for significant future growth. As part of this growth, the position of Industry Placement Coordinator is located with the School’s Academic Support Office and is responsible for administering the internship program for the School’s Masters by coursework students. These take place in both Australia and Malaysia, and there is scope to explore additional international destinations.

In this role, you will be involved in the development and maintenance of relationships with external organisations and key internal stakeholders. You will also be required to manage systems for administering and reporting on student placements, organise student preparation for their internship, liaise with subject coordinators and students and actively contribute to relevant committees and working groups.

Quality assurance and reporting processes are critical to the success of the Internship program so the incumbent will also be required to develop the relevant mechanisms to ensure the production of timely reports for key stakeholders, including the School’s Engagement Committee and the Industry Placement Working Group.

The Melbourne School of Engineering is strongly committed to supporting diversity and flexibility in the workplace. Applications for part-time or other flexible working arrangements will be welcomed and will be fully considered subject to meeting the inherent requirements of the position.
