Even though you are with us for a short time, we want to make sure you have a memorable experience – for all the right reasons. While you are focusing on a technical or research project, our 10-12 week programme ensures that you are offered as many additional opportunities as possible.
These opportunities focus on three key areas:
- Welcoming You
Your intern cohort will connect with one another other well before your first day in the office. You will also meet with members of your team to discuss your project and how to settle in. We want to make sure that from day one you are feeling supported, excited and enabled. Once you arrive, there are various induction activities which aim to bring you into the fold, ranging from a formal Powhiri to a three month peer buddy.
The development we focus on is specific to your short – medium term needs. By having a personal project supervisor and team buddy, and attending various lunchtime workshops, we aim to give you as much experiential learning as possible.
From participating in a graduates vs interns summer challenge to sitting down with our Chief Executive, we make sure that you are constantly growing your network. Going back to our Maori proverb, we know that our most valuable asset is our people – so we try to connect you with as many diverse, knowledgeable and insightful people as possible.
