Council career pathways for summer students

summer students

Students from universities around the country have just completed summer work placements at Council.

We employ students every year, offering professional development aligned with their chosen fields of study.

This summer we had 16 students working in a range of areas including environmental science and monitoring, communications and resource management.

Massey University bachelor of communications student Alice Morton said the work placement had shown her firsthand the broad scope of work and major projects Council is responsible for.

“There is so much going on at Council that I was oblivious to beforehand. It is great I have had the opportunity to gain knowledge about the council and so many jobs that are crucial for our community’s success.”

These roles are equally important to Council as they often result in students returning for several years and sometimes accepting a full time job upon graduation.
