Company Description

What is a Returnship?

It is essentially an internship for experienced individuals who have taken time away from their careers and would like to re-enter the workforce. This is also an opportunity where any experienced individual can get the chance to become re-acquainted with the latest trends in today’s work environment as well as improve skills that may have become rusty. However, like an internship, there is also no guarantee that it will lead to a full-time position depending on your performance or overall suitability or availability if you wish to pursue full-time careers with other companies.  

Our returnships are for a minimum of 3 months and the salary will be determined based your overall level of experience. Other than that, should any individual find other job opportunities while undergoing a potential returnship, a 2 weeks’ notice must be provided.

SEEKA Technologies (Not Seeka Limited as mistakenly shown on LinkedIn sometimes) is a project under its parent organization called Fresh Futures Australia which is an education consultant based in both Australia and Malaysia. It will be a huge platform that utilizes A.I. to help match students and job seekers to the right opportunities relevant to them from Primary/Grade school to University level as well as language schools and job opportunities. Our mission is to make it easier for anyone to find, filter and apply to different schools or educational institutions that suit them best as well as make the transition from studies to work more seamless.

We are currently looking to hire experienced individuals who have proven work experience as student counsellors and to give them the opportunity to get back into the industry. One thing you need to note is that our target market is the education system in Australia, so international background or experience working with foreign education systems is a bonus.
