Summer of Biz Interns

SoB Internships are full-time, paid, entry-level HR & Marketing roles, usually from mid-November to mid-February. They're for students at New Zealand tertiary institutions, regardless of what you're studying, or what stage of your qualification you are at, you just need to be interested & excited about kick-starting your HR & Marketing career. What you may lack in experience, you can make up for in motivation & passion to learn, fast!

HR & Marketing Internships

We help students prepare, research and apply for paid work experience and entry-level jobs in HR & Marketing roles during the university summer holidays. During the year, we prepare you for work through exposure to the technical topics & skills that are in demand by local employers, through our Bootcamp programme.

Tertiary students with an interest in developing skills in marketing strategy, communications, digital marketing, social media, human resources, customer support, event management, organisational development, recruitment, and more, we can help! You don’t need skills or experience, just an interest in a HR or Marketing career, and the motivation and passion to learn and develop your skills on the job!
