NSW Jobs Connect

For International Students

A NSW Government initiative delivered in partnership with Study NSW and SEEK.

NSW Jobs Connect for International Students is a NSW Government initiative connecting international students with employers to kick start their global careers. Together with industry, we’re enriching the international student experience by offering employment opportunities during study and after graduation. This reinforces NSW’s position as a global destination to study, live, and work.

Employers across Sydney and NSW play an important role in supporting international students and graduates to enhance their skills, career goals and professional development. In return, this stimulates workplace diversity, innovation and productivity.

Over 50 NSW employers have signed the NSW International Student Charter and have jobs available for international students.

For international students

If you’re an international student or graduate and keen to gain valuable work experience while completing your studies, we will walk you through rules and regulations of employment and connect you with opportunities.
