Title2020 Nova Group Work Experience
Office Name
Nova Systems is an Australian owned Professional Service Provider specialising in the provision of engineering and management services, providing industry and government with world class independent expertise in delivering complex projects and solving technologically challenging problems.

Our independence from equipment providers means we are solution independent and highly focused on value outcomes for clients.

We pursue this value through effective stakeholder solicitation and focus on understanding the outcomes our clients aim to achieve. Nova employs over 200 specialist consultants across Australia, with offices in all major cities. 
About the opportunity:
Work Experience Program
Nova provides work experience placements for university students in their penultimate or final year of studies, whose tertiary qualifications are aligned to Nova’s core capabilities (check out Capabilities on any of Our Businesses sites). The work experience placements are voluntary and location will be determined by which of our offices has an identified project and supervisor.
Work experience is seen as an early stage of our recruiting process to assess an individuals’ suitability for future employment. Whilst work experience is not a guarantee of future employment and it is highly unlikely that an Australian Government Security Vetting Agency security clearance will be needed for a work experience placement, being eligible for a security clearance is a consideration as part of any future offer we may give. As such, Work experience students (and Graduates) need to have Australian citizenship.
Typically, placements occur over the summer university break and start as early as November through to as late as March with interviews in October (pre-exams). Placements will not be less than 8 weeks. However, our priority is to not place a student at risk of compromising their degree due to work experience commitments. Therefore, we are flexible around these dates and on exception placements can occur outside November to March.
If you are interested in the Nova Work Experience Program please send your CV, academic transcript and a covering letter to WorkExperience@Novasystems.com.au. The covering letter should clearly identify which office(s) you are interested in working from and what you hope to gain out of a placement from the program.
Please note that work experience placements are competitive, and therefore Nova may not be able to accommodate all student enquiries.
