Getting an intern through New Zealand Internships guarantees you a hassle free experience. Active since 2007 and having successful assisted thousands of interns to find a place within New Zealand companies, we know precisely how to successfully arrange an internship. We will fully assist your company and our interns. From overseeing visa/insurance and accommodation arrangements to looking after their social well-being through regularly scheduled trips & activities.
Our international students and professionals from overseas bring a variety of cross-cultural benefits to your workplace – including in many cases, foreign languages. With different cultural backgrounds, education, experience, and insights compared to your local employees, they will bring an invaluable new perspective to your company.
We offer many different options to suit your business including remote, part time, full time and different length of placement from short term- 8 weeks, to longer term which is 6-8 months.
Some of our candidates are available to start within the month, and others apply well in advance so that they can lock in their placement and make plans. This way you can accomodate project work or plan ahead.
Your organisation can host an intern from $0,- (that’s right, zero dollar’s) per week.
Interns can prove valuable in getting special projects or research off the ground. Equally, your current staff could be freed up for tasks where higher-level, strategic thinking or expertise is required. The net result is a significant increase in workplace productivity.
