Why intern in New Zealand?

From rolling hills to stunning beaches, snow-covered mountain slopes to dense forests – there’s a lot to love about New Zealand! Add to the mix New Zealand’s diverse cities – which are consistently ranked as some of the most liveable in the world. Whatever it is that attracts you to select a country for your internship, we think destination New Zealand almost certainly has what you’re looking for.

New Zealand is the 4th safest country and the 1st safest English speaking country in the world. In other words a great location to improve your English (if needed) and to do an internship abroad. This might also be one of the reasons why New Zealand is such a strong multicultural society; people visit New Zealand and simply fall in love with the place!

New Zealand is a place where you can really make a mark on your career. It has a relaxed – yet professional – work environment that is consistently ranked at the top when it comes to the ease of doing business. New Zealand has a stable and globally competitive economy and is among the top 20 countries the world, having experienced positive economic growth for 33 of the last 35 years. Finally, New Zealander’s are known for their ‘can-do’ attitude and ability to make more from less. This more easy-going Kiwi lifestyle makes it easier to build strong and long-lasting relationships.

Once your day at your internship is over you’ll never run out of things to do. You’re never far from the beach, the mountains, the ocean or the BBQ. When the weekend hits, New Zealand doesn’t disappoint either; you might even want to try some Kiwi favourites like rafting, surfing, hiking, kayaking, sailing, skiing, skydiving or bungee jumping.
