The latest national recognition for SA Power Networks' Intern Program underscores the opportunities available for Engineering and Digital & Technology undergraduates looking for exceptional opportunities and experiences and a career in the power industry.

The SA Power Networks Engineering Vacation Program has been recognised as one of the top internship programs in Australia, ranking 14th amongst smaller intakes nationally. This is a rise from 28th last year and reflects our ongoing effort to continually improve the program and its outcomes for the next generation of power industry graduates. 

The Australian Association of Graduate Employers (AAGE) arrived at the ranking based on input from over 2,400 interns recruited in 2023 and covering 147 organisations nationwide.  

SA Power Networks is one of the few SA-headquartered companies to feature in the AAGE top 50 list. 

Internships play a pivotal role in shaping the careers of young professionals. They provide a bridge between academic learning and real-world experience, allowing students to apply their knowledge, develop practical skills, and explore potential career paths.

Recognition in the AAGE 2024 Top 50 Intern Program is welcome and reflects our commitment to provide opportunities that benefit not only our interns' development but also our company's growth and success.
