Samantha | Graduate Energy Analyst
When first looking for work after finishing studying Applied Mathematics and Forensic Science, it was
important to me that I stepped into a role where my learning and growth would advance. I was searching
for a challenge, and the opportunity to become part of a team where our work would be meaningful.
Genesis' ever-evolving place in the energy sector offered a unique one.
Genesis take on a tailored approach to nurturing their graduates, which has been such a highlight to my
time here so far. Working as a Graduate Energy Analyst, I’ve been doing analytics in both the Retail and
Wholesale sides of the business. I've been given opportunity to develop in fast-paced environments, and
also in the areas I’m genuinely interested and passionate about.
Starting my career at Genesis has exposed me to all kinds of skillsets, pathways, and people. One of the
most significant lessons I’ve learnt in working among such diversity is that there’s nothing not worth
exploring. Push yourself outside of your comfort zone, ask questions, and take in every bit of knowledge
and experience that you can from your colleagues. Ultimately, that’s what’s helped me start to direct my
Chelsea | Graduate Analyst - Finance and Risk
As I was a part of the TupuToa programme, I was placed at Genesis for my three month summer internship.
Within these three months I learnt about the electricity and carbon market, got to know the people
behind the Genesis brand and began to see that our people truly care about empowering New Zealand’s
It was hard to leave Genesis after my internship. One month after my internship ended, I received a call
asking if I wanted to continue being a Derivatives Analyst. Going back allowed me to also gain
experience as a Commercial and Industrial (C&I) intern and Middle Office Intern, all within one year.
I heard that there were graduate roles in the works and applied for the Genesis graduate role as soon as
it was advertised. I was offered a role as a ‘Graduate Analyst – Finance and Risk’. I haven’t looked
Daniel | Energy Analyst
I knew nothing about New Zealand’s electricity sector when I applied for Genesis. It was the energy I got
from the people that drew me in. They were all part of a culture where workplace safety was a priority,
people encouraged others to grow and succeed, and where everyone’s contribution was valued.
I had the opportunity to work with a range of different stakeholders, each with varying levels of
seniority. That exposed me to different areas and has helped me understand the significance of each
segment within the business. Throughout my journey, I felt like a valued team member and have seen the
work I do create a meaningful impact.
I’m excited to be part of Genesis as they, and New Zealand, steer towards a more sustainable future.
Over the next few years, I’m eager to see the impact our work has on key business decisions and how that
ultimately affects the electricity sector. I would strongly encourage anyone else interested in
empowering New Zealand’s sustainable future to become part of it too.
San | Electrical Engineer
Since I was little the power generation field has always fascinated me. It even runs in the blood as my
dad is an electrical engineer too. I really enjoyed my electrical and control systems courses at uni, so
when I saw Genesis advertising for a graduate electrical and control systems engineer, I knew it was the
I was put through a graduate programme which exposed me to a wide variety of work. I was also partnered
with a mentor to bounce questions off. I’ve found an area I’m passionate about and Genesis has really
set up a good foundation for me. The culture was so easy going and welcoming as well.
Recently I’ve been involved in our hydro control systems work, upgrading our power schemes’ backup
generators and working in the asset strategy space. This involves looking at our asset philosophies and
longer-term planning. Believe me when I say no two days are the same. Hands down one of the best places
to start your career.
