Overview

Discover where your degree can take you

"Digital government” means working with New Zealanders and businesses to reimagine their experiences of government and reshaping the system of government for a digital era.


We want all New Zealanders to be thriving in a digital world

Graduate Programme GovTechTalent Beehive

We use technology to improve the lives of everyday New Zealanders – tackling real-world problems of running households, driving our roads, using public transport, housing, security, healthcare, and the environment. Our grads work to design and build solutions that will make a difference in our country.

Working in digital in the public sector is about more than improving IT systems and processes. In the broadest sense, it means doing things differently in an increasingly connected world — using new mindsets, skillsets, technologies, and data to benefit people, government and the economy.


Who we look for

We recruit from a broad range of subjects - whether you're studying Arts of Sciences, there's a space for you. In particular, we look for graduates studying the following:

  • Māori studies
  • Cross-cultural Psychology
  • Political Science
  • Philosophy
  • Policy
  • Design and UX
  • Information Systems
  • Data Science
  • Computer Science
