Nelson Tasman is a place of surprising diversity. While people often come for the stunning natural landscapes, inspiring arts and artisan produce that we are most well-known for, there is also a thriving clever business community, making its mark on the world stage. Think the world’s best-loved peanut butter, Australasia’s largest fishing port, the only place in NZ to grow hops on a commercial scale, NZ’s largest independent science organisation and many world-leading software development companies.
The Nelson Tasman Summer Intern programme offers you the opportunity to discover many of these businesses – giving you exposure and access to the region’s largest employers and senior staff. While the programme includes a variety of roles across a diverse range of businesses, what makes it special is that all interns will take part in a wider social and development programme. Interns will get to know and network with all the businesses taking part, develop their skills in areas such as agile methodology and business partnering, and be surrounded by a support network of their intern peers.
The programme is designed so that the interns are employed by individual organisations across the region and then come together as a group for a professional development and social programme. This allows the interns to experience and gain understanding of the range of clever businesses in the region while also enhancing your experience by sharing it with others.
