Council updates  |  17 Dec 2019

The Christchurch City Council is looking for student interns who want to make a difference in their community and contribute to a growing city.

Council Parks Programmes and Partnerships Manager Kate Russell says that with more than 1000 different careers at the Council, there are plenty of opportunities for young people interested in working within local government.

“Our new internship programme covers an extensive portfolio of work within the Council, providing fantastic opportunities for students to develop their skills and work in an engaging environment,” Ms Russell says.

“We are encouraging young people who want to contribute to their local community and also have an interest in local government to contact us and get involved in their exciting new city.”

Among the opportunities are a junior business analyst, a digital content intern, a data analyst, a library catalogue intern, public space assistant, arts researcher, botanical horticulturalist and threatened plants intern.

“These are just a few of the many intern opportunities available early next year,” Ms Russell says.

“They also give young people a chance to find out whether a career in these areas is the right fit.”

Applications close on Sunday, 19 January, with the internships starting in early March.
