The Waitaki District’s internship programme offers New Zealand and international university and polytechnic students across a range of subjects the opportunity to gain project-based work experience that varies in length from 10 weeks to one year.
These are voluntary (unpaid) internships with accommodation in Oamaru being provided.
Opportunities will change from time to time and projects will sometimes be dependent on the availability of suitable supervisors and funding, so they may not always be available.
Projects will be offered and managed by Council and may be extended to its partners/controlled organisation. So, if you have a great idea that you would love to pursue, and that you think would be a good fit for Council or the district, just pitch it. Be creative!
Who are we looking for?
Council is looking for driven, talented and passionate people who care about communities and improving the lives of those living here in the Waitaki District. You will bring skills from one of a very wide range of topic areas.
