Summer intern programme
The Downer Summer Intern Programme provides engineering students with a structured 12 week programme of hands on job training and work experience and an introduction to the world of contracting. It’s also an excellent pathway to our Graduate programme.
Working as part of a road maintenance crew or supporting a tender submission, our summer interns are expected to get involved, gain a greater understanding of the industry and make a contribution to the business.
We are looking for future leaders who are keen to demonstrate their ability, want to develop their leadership skills, are self-motivated and enjoy being challenged every day. Interns who prove themselves may be offered full-time employment into the Downer graduate programme or be invited back for the following summer if still a student.
Downer has projects throughout New Zealand so ideally candidates need to be agile, willing to move to projects where their skill set is needed, and be keen to face any challenge to gain the right experiences to take their career forward.
Applications for our 2022/2023 programme will open in May 2022.
