NRW’s Vacation Program is a fantastic way for university students to gain practical experience in their field of study and prepare for graduate employment.

Over a period of 12 weeks during Summer or six weeks during Winter, our vacation students will work on a project alongside NRW’s team of professionals who will share their knowledge and provide an insight to the operations of a FIFO work environment.

Should you be successful, it is common for vacation students to go on to NRW’s Graduate Program  after completing their studies.
