SBMS Interns

Traders Connect


SBMS has established relationships with a number of universities including RMIT, Chisholm, Deakin and Latrobe in providing opportunities for students to gain professional experience and practice the skills they are studying by working directly with QVM Traders. 


Coming from a broad category of backgrounds and personal interests, our interns share one thing in common:  their love for local small business.  They’re passionate about putting their skills to good use, each ready and eager to take up the challenge and help QVM traders.  The value they bring cannot be understated. Our Interns’ capabilities include photography, videography, graphic design, web design, SEO, communications and marketing.


Two of our Interns – Stephanie (Digital Marketing) and Daniel (Videography) finished their internship in September.  Daniel has enjoyed his internship immensely and chosen to stay on around his studies and other commitments. A further four Interns are nearing the end of their internship in October.  During their time with us all have been true ambassadors for SBMS.


As we say good-bye to Nathan (web design/SEO), Thuy (marketing), Nadya (graphic/web design), and Christian (graphic/web design) we extend a warm welcome to our two new interns, Igor and Tobias.  Tobias is already leaving his mark with new logo concepts for QVM Trader, Art n Groove, in his first week with us!
