We offer a number of summer positions each year to economics, banking or finance students who usually have one year of an Honours or Masters degree to complete.
If you’re studying macroeconomics, monetary economics, finance, applied econometrics, international economics or public economics, then we’re keen to hear from you. It goes without saying that you’re curious, analytical, a critical thinker, and a team player. Your strong written and verbal English, along with your superb communication skills, means you know how to get your point across clearly and concisely. We welcome applications from international students, provided you are legally entitled to work in New Zealand full time.
Please note summer positions are only open to students studying at a New Zealand university.
