Our Summer Internship Programme

To apply for our intern programme, you need to be in your second-to-last year of study.

The programme will give you a taste of what it’s like to work for Audit New Zealand and you’ll gain invaluable on-the-job experience over your summer holidays.

We provide a different work programme for each intern, so you’ll work on a variety of clients and projects. Most of our interns get the opportunity to travel. Also, every intern spends a week working at the Office of the Auditor-General.

At the end of the internship, you’ll return to Wellington to prepare and give a presentation to our Executive Leadership Team. We’ll make job offers to those interns we think will succeed at Audit New Zealand.

If successful, you’ll go back to university to complete your studies, and start working for us as an Assistant Auditor in our Graduate Programme the following February.

We know it’s hard to make the transition from student life to full-time work, so we give our interns a four-week break over the Christmas and New Year holiday period.

"I have really enjoyed my summer interning with Audit New Zealand.
I met the Audit New Zealand people at a University Careers event. They were really friendly and approachable. They clearly enjoy the work they do which makes for a great learning environment. Also, the range of clients and the type of work seemed interesting. I wasn’t expecting to be doing as much real auditing work on my own. I’ve really enjoyed that. I have made new friends, learned a lot and even got to spend a week shadowing the Auditor General."
