Industry Pathways

Our Internship Program is designed for those in the Hospitality sector as well as some core trade vocations. The purpose of this program is to upskill appropriate candidates in their chosen field of study and to develop additional skills relevant to Australian work practices and requirements.

Whether you are an overseas resident looking to spend time in Australia, or an employer looking for motivated, highly skilled staff, the JR Training Internship is a valuable pathway to success!

What is a 407 Visa Internship?

  • The Training visa (subclass 407) is for people who want to come to Australia on a temporary basis to participate in occupational training or professional development.
  • JR Training assists people in obtaining sponsorship to participate in workplace-based occupational training through a paid Internship of up to 2 years.
  • Through our Internships, we offer foreign nationals with an opportunity to live and work in Australia to extend and enhance their skills in occupations such as hospitality and trades.
  • This program is an ideal stepping stone for people graduating from a CRICOS college or applicants with overseas qualifications or limited experience.

Which Occupations?

Internships are available across a wide range of occupations. JR Training are specialists in Hospitality and Automotive Trades. Check out the current list of occupations here: eligible occupations list.

How does it work?

Our training partners will assess applicants to develop a suitable training plan under the Training Visa 407. JR Training can facilitate an employer or prospective employer to become a sponsor.

The first step in the process is to engage JR Training for a 407 visa eligibility assessment by a registered migration agent.

Where an applicant meets eligibility criteria, we will arrange sponsorship for a 407 visa and facilitate the paid Internship.

Where an Intern does not already have an employer, we will match them to an appropriate Employer. We will work with them and the Employer to develop and deliver a structured training program within their chosen field.

On notification that the application has been successful, the Internship can commence.

Who is eligible?

Applicants can be either already in Australia under another visa or apply from overseas. Key eligibility criteria include:

  • at least 18 years of age AND
  • have recently completed a relevant qualification either in Australia or overseas OR
  • worked in the occupation full-time for at least 12 of the last 24 months
  • functional English of at least 4.5 IELTS

For more information about 407 visa conditions and eligibility refer to the Department of Home Affairs website

What does it pay

Interns are employed for a minimum of 30 hours a week at award wages for the duration of their Internship.

For information about wages and conditions, visit the Fair Work Australia website


If for some reason the Intern we place with a host employer doesn’t work out within the first 3 months, we will work with the Intern to find a replacement host, providing the Intern has continued to satisfy all visa requirements. There is no obligations by the host employer or sponsor to assist the Intern in relocating however, if the Intern has shown good intent and met all visa requirements, the sponsor will endeavour to assist to their best capabilities.


On completion of the 407 Training Internship, you could be eligible for other visas such as the TSS Visa, ENS 186 Visa or RSMS 187 Visa. We will refer you to our immigration partners for any migration queries.
