Starting your career at Sandfield can set you up for a bright future. Not only will it help you build strong technical and business foundations, you’ll also get hands-on experience working with a variety of customers, projects and custom development – rather than just hammering away at one product.
Our team environment is also designed to set you up for success. Our open-plan environment and one-on-one mentoring approach ensures you’ll learn and gain experience at a rapid pace – and you’ll have loads of fun with the team along the way too.

Technical and soft skills training
We like to invest back into our team, offering a range of training to help with your professional and personal life.
We don’t see interns as the coffee makers, we see you as our future team mates and leaders.
Our internship programme’s flexible - it’s not just a summer programme to gain your remaining credits. It’s a part-time job where we work in with your Uni hours and exams throughout the year. Most of our interns work eight hours per week during semester time, with increased hours during your holidays.
You’ll have great on-the-job support with one-on-one mentoring by our senior developers, some of whom also started out as an intern with us. If it works well, there’s a good chance you’ll be hired full-time once you’ve finished your studies.
We typically take on four to five interns per year. Ideally, you will be in your third year of university studying for an Information Technology / Computer Science degree with career aspirations to move into software development.
We say “ideally”, because you don’t have to fit the exact criteria to get an internship with us. We recognise potential and a willingness to learn as sometimes being more valuable than ticking the ‘right’ technical boxes.
We’re looking for good communicators who are well-rounded – not just technically strong. You’ll be backed by good results and ideally some real-life work experience in any discipline. We also like proactive self-learners with evidence of projects/passions outside of Uni. Demonstrating a willingness to take on extra responsibilities and showing initiative and curiosity is attributes that we look for.
Hours will depend on the intern and what suits them. Typically a full-time student will work 8 hours per week, which could be two half days or one full day, however, we do have interns that average 20 hours per week.
Also, during semester breaks and the summer holidays, our interns can choose to work full-time.
When we employ interns our intention is that there will be a full time graduate opportunity once you have completed your studies. Many of our interns have started as graduates and are now in senior roles with the business.
