IE3 Global collaborates with an in-country partner to provide high-quality, personalized internship opportunities. Through personal contact and hands-on student engagement, our partner matches students with an organization where they can learn and make a valuable contribution. They have professional opportunities with business, social work, and a variety of other focus areas in New Zealand.
New Zealand Internships (NZI) has been coordinating internships with a focus on exceptional service and a well-rounded experience for each intern since 2007. By working with students personally, the NZI team tailors internships and services to each individual. Based in Auckland, NZI places students across the country in 3 or 6-month internships. In addition to a varied internship portfolio, NZI provides additional support for participants on-site, including travel and social activities.
New Zealand Internships works with a variety of host organizations that offer internships working in business, social work, and several additional fields. Please note that healthcare/medical internships are not available in New Zealand. Placements depend on current needs, intern experience, and length of commitment. Past internship placements include:

NZI offers assistance in locating and securing accommodation in New Zealand. Payment for accommodation is due to the local landlord/provider.
Interns may arrange their own housing if they do not choose NZI-Assisted housing.
“Working in the industry itself taught me a lot about how to communicate with clients, the process of a product from brief to video, and the variety of work that can be completed for clients. I did four interviews while I was there to gain a different perspective of each of my coworkers working at the company. I gained very insightful tips about what they did to get to the position they are in today and what they wished they would have known before working in the industry. As a videographer, I now would like to work with corporate clients and create videos for companies that are in need of short informational videos that are going to be internal or even training videos.”
