Graduates and Interns

Graduate Programme

We understand the importance of attracting and retaining good people. Our graduate programme helps foster graduate engineers. They get to work alongside experienced industry professionals to assist in planning, designing and maintaining the performance of our electricity network assets.

The programme involves pairing graduates with a second-year graduate and senior engineer to support them through the programme.

Graduates develop technical competence and work towards becoming an Engineering New Zealand chartered engineer.

Areas of the company graduates have an opportunity to move between include:

  • Electricity Development / Planning
  • Design
  • Protection Engineering
  • Asset Fleet management
  • Network Operations
  • Service delivery

To be eligible for the Graduate Programme you need a Bachelor of Engineering or Diploma in a related field and have the right to work in New Zealand.

As a graduate engineer, you will receive a competitive remuneration package with six monthly increases to recognise your increasing contribution to the success of our business. You will also enjoy all the benefits available to our employees.
 
Applications for our 2020/21 Graduate Programme are now closed.

We look for motivated and enthusiastic people studying towards a Bachelor or Diploma, or at high school. Where possible we try to match interns with departments relevant to their study area.
