Internex has been placing local and international students, graduates and professional into host organisations and families since 1999 and are one of the first dedicated placement organisations in the world. We opened our first office in 1999 and since then have placed over 20,000 participants into internships, work experience and volunteer programs in Canada, New Zealand and Australia. We have worked with hundreds of farm hosts throughout New Zealand and Australia and most hosts have said that the participants have been excellent additions to their farms and very rewarding to have in their families. We have placed our participants onto many types with the most common being sheep and beef, dairy, mixed and horse farms, primarily equestrian, polo and racehorses. We also have many mixed-use farms where our farm workers act as support in many areas of the farm and the farmhouse. We offer our participants assistance with visas, flights, insurance, airport transfers, homestay or apartment accommodation, social activities and advice on weekend and holiday travel and a 24-hour emergency number.
