What is the difference between the internship program and the work experience programs?
The internship program is an 8week, team-based, research oriented program with exposure to all departments within our company to help the interns develop a product and bring it from concept to completion, with the possibility of inclusion into the brand(s) at a later stage. This program is based in Sydney, from our head office. There is a maximum of 4 placements per year for this program.
Work experience programs are available in all states (Except ACT and TAS).
Placements for this, are based on a first in, first served basis, and are limited to the available resources of each state. Work experience consists of a “day in the field” with our experienced practitioner consultants, visiting a wide variety of accounts. Such as clinics, specialists, doctors, pharmacies etc. These will only be offered 1-2 times per year, at the discretion of the state sales manager for the applicable state.
Will BioCeuticals cover the travel and accommodation costs for interns in Sydney?
No, any costs associated with travel, accommodation or meals etc. Will need to be covered by the intern themselves.
What experience will an intern expect to gain from the internship?
An intern in our 8week program will be exposed to all elements essential to bringing a product from concept to completion. This includes, but is not limited to: Product Development, Regulatory Affairs, Marketing and Advertising of Therapeutic Goods, Research and Writing, Education and Technical Support, Customer Service and Sales as well as seeing the inner workings of a large complementary medicine company and making invaluable contacts along the way.
