Internship and volunteer opportunities
NZGBC helps facilitate internships and volunteer positions for our student members at organisations with an interest in building sustainability.
We have a diverse range of member companies in different sectors. Our members are all organisations working in some way to improve the sustainability of the built environment. So, for students also interested in and/ or studying aspects of building sustainability, experience at an NZGBC member company can be a good fit.
How can we help?
We maintain a database of member companies that are specifically interested in applications from potential interns or volunteers who are NZGBC student members.
If you are an NZGBC student member looking for such a position, please email us with your programme of study and/ or specialist area.
We will pass you the appropriate contact details at member companies seeking students with your skill set.
