Internship and Cadetship
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.
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!
There are limited places for internships, so think of it like applying for a job, make yourself as competitive as possible. Applications for internships are open all year round for periods of 10 weeks, up to a full year.
In order to be considered, you must forward:
- a covering letter giving an indication of the project or type of project that you might like to pursue
- your curriculum vitae (CV) or resume
- your academic transcript
- contact details for your Academic Advisor/Dean/Head of School
