IE3 Global collaborates with New Zealand Internships (NZI) to provide high-quality, personalized internship opportunities for students interested in environmental science. NZI matches students to internships based on industry interest, professional and academic experience, and personal goals. Interns should consider the local season, diverse environments, species, types of organizations, and desired professional duties at the time of application to facilitate the identification of a relevant opportunity.
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 environmental science. Some may have a specific focus, while others may provide exposure to many different areas of study. Some typical tasks include:
Interns working with wildlife or in environmental placements should consider the best season for application. Many field-based wildlife placements or visitor centers/tourist facilities will be busiest during the local summer season (winter in the US).
*Fee amounts are calculated with an exchange rate from New Zealand dollars at the time of posting.
The host site fee from NZI includes:
NZI can also arrange airport pickup (Auckland Only), additional insurance for recreational activities, assistance with Student Trainee Visas, and first-day introductions to the host company (Auckland only) at additional cost to interns.
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.
