This opportunity is for a New Zealand undergraduate student or recent graduate majoring in international relations, business, communications or media to gain valuable industry experience through an internship programme. The successful applicant will support the work of the New Zealand China Council by contributing to research, public events and social media initiatives under the Council's strategic plan.

The New Zealand China Council is a New Zealand-led, New Zealand-funded organisation that acts as a cross-sector, peak body for the relationship between the two countries.

The Council was established in 2012 as part of the New Zealand Government's NZ Inc Strategy for China.

The Council's unique value proposition derives from its role in bringing together a high-level influential group of key players in the relationship and in leveraging their influence and networks in support of deeper, stronger and more resilient links between New Zealand and China.

Applications close Monday 30 August 2021

About the internship

The internship period is for eight weeks, with a flexible starting date between November 2021 – February 2022.

The successful applicant will have the opportunity to:

  • conduct research for the Council's working groups, which are focused on climate change, packaging, and community engagement.
  • assist with the Council's public-facing initiatives including events, social media and the NZCC's podcast platform. 
  • monitor social media trends and academic papers/research relevant to the Council's work.
