- harness WA’s brightest young minds, who bring fresh perspectives, ideas and new synergies to projects
- build a recruitment pipeline, by taking the opportunity to evaluate and nurture talent prior to graduation
- offer your staff professional development opportunities to mentor and manage students
- raise the profile of your organisation through promotion to students and the wider UWA community
- establish relationships within UWA which may lead to further collaborations.

McCusker Centre for Citizenship
The McCusker Centre for Citizenship partners with not-for-profit, community and government organisations to provide a structured, quality internship program for students. Through this award-winning internship program, students engage in active citizenship by making a difference and contributing to fixing complex social issues in our community.

Inspire the next generation of leaders
Mentoring is a great way to have a positive impact, give back to your profession, develop your leadership skills and build meaningful networks with students. As a mentor, you will offer advice and information about your own career journey, sharing with students your insights into the industry they hope to enter and empowering them to achieve their very best.
We’re on the lookout for mentors to join UWA’s Career Mentor Link, our award-winning industry mentoring program.
