Veracity positions business leaders to overcome challenges and make confident investment decisions in complex markets. Our approach relies on credible insight, actionable analysis, and assured results. We combine an extensive network of sources with a rigorous methodology to gather and analyze obscure information and provide advice that is clear and fully contextualized. Our due diligence, political risk and strategy, and dispute resolution service offerings enable clients to make confident and informed decisions in even the most difficult markets. 

We welcome applications for Winter (June-August), Spring (September-December), and Summer/Fall (February-May) internships. Our internships serve as a significant professional pipeline, and many past interns have gone on to full-time employment with the firm. While an internship is not an automatic path to a job offer, interns who perform strongly will receive priority consideration for openings that develop during or after their time at Veracity. While we are open to those seeking a career change or who are otherwise unconventional internship applicants , we particularly encourage those who are completing or have recently completed graduate and undergraduate study and would be well positioned to transition to full-time roles following their internship. 

In general, we seek candidates who are curious by nature, possess a strong work ethic, are excellent writers, and can learn new skills quickly. All of our internships are paid, and we seek to integrate interns into all aspects of the firm as much as possible. Our Melbourne office is currently operating on a hybrid basis, and interns should expect to spend some time in the office to ensure their integration into the firm’s culture and work.
