About NELP

The North East Link Project (NELP) will connect the missing link in Melbourne's freeway network by linking the Eastern Freeway and the M80 Ring Road in Melbourne's northeast. The project includes major upgrades to the Eastern Freeway from Springvale Road including Melbourne's first dedicated busway from Doncaster towards the city. The North East Link will be a safe and efficient freeway connection for up to 135,000 vehicles a day, slashing travel times, getting trucks off local roads, linking key growth areas in the north and south-east and creating thousands of jobs during construction and early operation.
As part of the Summer Internship program, we are looking for multiple interns to join our growing team. The internship program aims to build the next generation of diverse and inclusive talent ready for careers in transport.

We are looking for interns in the following areas to join our growing teams:

As an intern at NELP, you will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience related to your current studies. You'll be part of a team delivering the biggest road transport project in Victoria's history, and you'll be able to see the impact of this work as you travel through the state each day.  

Summer Internship Information & Eligibility
