Internship Opportunity

There will be a preference for a student that is interested in intern work with Theta and potentially a graduate role with Theta (as mutually agreed).

There is the opportunity for additional paid intern work for the scholarship recipient. This would be the opportunity to spend up to three weeks per annum in paid work with Theta during the holidays. Holiday work will be paid at the living wage (or a mutually agreed rate), and some of the internship time would be used contribute to our internal Te Ao Māori group. Note that there could be the option of more holiday work too.
