2.1 Candidates must be between the ages of 18 and 30 years old and be able to obtain a valid visa to undertake, and for the duration of, the internship in the country where the internship takes place. It is the responsibility of the Candidate to ensure that they have the correct visa.
2.2 The Candidate is responsible for obtaining permission to undertake the internship from their educational institution (if applicable).
2.3 Upon signing up to NZI on the website, the Candidate immediately receives login details to access NZI’s Candidate Platform.
2.4 The Candidate is then able to login and access their Candidate Platform which contain information on how to pay the deposit (NZD$250.00) and the non-refundable administration fee (NZD$75.00). The Candidate must pay the deposit and administration fee before accessing NZI’s services.
2.5 Once the deposit and non-refundable administration fee are paid by the Candidate, NZI will send a request to the Candidate to submit a Candidate Profile.
2.6 The Candidate is responsible for enclosing correct and complete information in their Candidate Profile through the Candidate Platform. This profile includes an up-to-date CV, a professional photograph, and cover letter. The Candidate agrees that their Candidate Profile will be shared with third parties and on the website.
2.7 Following submission of the Candidate Profile by the Candidate, NZI will begin searching for an acceptable internship with a Host Organisation by contacting Host Organisations directly and by putting the Candidate Profile on the website. When a potential Host Organisation indicates that there might be an internship opportunity, NZI will inform the Candidate about this as soon as possible.
2.8 In the event that a potential internship opportunity is found, NZI will generally arrange an interview between the Candidate and the potential Host Organisation. NZI will inform the Candidate as soon as possible in the event that the interview results in an internship offer from the potential Host Organisation.
2.9 The Candidate has the option to either accept or decline the placement offer. If the Candidate wants to decline a possible internship, they must provide a valid reason to NZI. Declining a placement because the Candidate found one by themselves will not be seen as a valid reason. In the event the Candidate declines the placement offer with a valid reason, NZI will endeavor to find the Candidate another placement offer.
2.10 When an offer for an internship is made, and accepted, NZI will provide a personalised quote for the placement fee to the Candidate. Once this is paid in full, NZI will facilitate the signing of an internship agreement with the Candidate and the Host Organisation.
2.11 When the Candidate signs the internship agreement with the Host Organisation, the contract supersedes all prior agreements. These Terms and Conditions will continue to apply unless otherwise stated in any other agreement signed by the parties.
2.12 Once the internship agreement has been signed by NZI, the Host Organisation and the Candidate, the contractual relationship between NZI and the parties involved will come to an end, unless for aspects expressly stated in the agreement or in these Terms and Conditions.
2.13 NZI reserves, at all times, the right to decline Candidates who are deemed unsuitable for an internship. NZI cannot guarantee an internship for every Candidate and cannot be held accountable for any reason if an internship is unable to be secured.
2.14 The Candidate agrees that their personal information will be shared with third parties in order to provide the requested services.
2.15 The information given by Candidates might be altered by NZI slightly. The Candidate is permitted to access their information and to make amendments. These amendments are only permitted when it is in the interest of fulfilling the service.
