Internships at SKEX

SKEX has always been about embracing change and continuous learning, which is why we have offered internships to young professionals since 2001. Candidates from Austria, Germany, France, Switzerland, Thailand, Brazil and Australia have spent a short time of their lives with us; while they are given the opportunity to sample the Australian way and learn from the more senior team members, SKEX has benefited from the ongoing influx of fresh ideas.

"In this business, you're old by the time you become 35. SKEX offers the culture for young employees to learn from the more senior people, while they in turn benefit from the fresh ideas of the young. It's a true business symbiosis."
