AUSSIE IN­TERNS … A GREAT CA­REER

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - YOUR LOCAL POLITICIAN’S SAY -

Lo­cal com­pany, Aus­tralian Pump In­dus­tries is look­ing to re­cruit mar­ket­ing and en­gi­neer­ing in­terns. Aussie Pumps, lo­cated on 2.1/2 acre in the Vic­to­ria Park busi­ness district, is grow­ing so fast they need more peo­ple and they need them now!

“Be­ing an in­tern is a great way of study­ing and gain­ing work ex­pe­ri­ence si­mul­ta­ne­ously. We call it ‘learn as you work’,” said Aussie Pump’s Brad Far­ru­gia. “Mar­ket­ing in­terns, sup­ported with our in­house train­ing pro­gram de­velop into Prod­uct Man­age­ment roles”, he said.

Work­ing in con­junc­tion with the mar­ket­ing de­part­ment, and ex­pe­ri­enced prod­uct man­agers, in­terns are given own­er­ship of a par­tic­u­lar prod­uct range. Through mar­ket re­search they de­velop an un­der­stand­ing of the prod­ucts’ ap­pli­ca­tion and suit­abil­ity.

They work to de­velop that line, mak­ing sure that it meets the needs of the con­sumers. In­terns play a vi­tal part in build­ing mar­ket­ing pro­grammes, prod­uct en­hance­ment and even me­dia man­age­ment.

“It is not for ev­ery­one,” said Far­ru­gia. “We need en­er­getic young in­terns with in­tel­li­gence, de­ter­mi­na­tion and courage. Ethics is also a vi­tal part of the role as ev­ery­thing we do here is about help­ing peo­ple op­er­ate in a smarter and safer way with pres­sure clean­ers and pumps that we pro­duce”, he said.
