SUMMER EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY – EXPRESSION OF INTEREST

This call for Expressions of Interest (EOI) is for a Raukawa intern to participate in a summer placement with key ministers and departments based in Wellington.  The programme provides the opportunity for one Raukawa intern to be placed at a central government agency for approximately ten (10) weeks over the summer period.  This EOI sets out background to the scholarship and criteria for selection.

 

BACKGROUND

This opportunity is provided on an annual basis as part of the Raukawa Settlement Trust Ministerial Accords.   This opportunity is also being made available to the other Waikato River iwi – Tūwharetoa, Maniapoto, Waikato-Tainui and Te Arawa River Iwi Trust.

 

OPPORTUNITY

The programme will be focussed at giving the selected intern a flavour of how the public service works, and hands on experience working on policy projects.  The internship is largely policy focussed with the intern working on policy development and would ideally suit someone looking to advance their studies or gain work experience within their chosen field.

 

Depending on preferences, the intern will have the possibility of working with the following agencies:

  • Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment
  • Department of Internal Affairs
  • Land Information New Zealand
  • Department of Conservation
  • Ministry for Primary Industries
  • Ministry for the Environment

 

The internship runs for ten weeks from the 25 November 2019 to 14 February 2020 with two weeks off over the Christmas and New Year period (23 December 2019 – 3 January 2020).  The internship will be paid $20.59 per hour, excluding the Christmas New Year close down and public holidays.

 

The programme starts with the other Waikato River interns spending time together followed by a week of induction and presentations on the machinery of government works.   The remainder of the programme will involve the intern being assigned to individual teams within the respective ministries.

 

Prior to commencement of the programme, interns will be provided with a full description of the programme and broad details of what each intern will be working on.

 

The Raukawa intern will receive guidance and support from both the placement department and the Raukawa Charitable Trust.

 

TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATION

Accommodation in Wellington will be at the interns cost.  The Raukawa Charitable Trust will provide a koha of up to $1000 towards travel and miscellaneous costs.  All cost will need to be approved prior to expenditure.

 

SELECTION CRITERIA

We are seeking expressions of interest from potential candidates.  Potential candidates will:

  • be registered to at least one Raukawa Settlement Trust mandated marae
  • be able to commit and complete the full ten (10) week placement;
  • have completed at least one year of study at a tertiary intuition from a broad range of disciplines;
  • present back their experiences and learnings to the Raukawa Charitable Trust at the conclusion of the placement.

 

Selection of candidates will be based on the above criteria.   Previous interns are encouraged to apply for a further placement.   Decision to approve an additional placement will be based on feedback from MfE and Pūtake Taiao.  Any decision to approve an additional year(s) will be balanced against providing other Raukawa uri with opportunities and the suitability of other Raukawa applicants.

 

If you are interested in this opportunity please send your CV and a 200 word statement of intent to Anaru Begbie by 5pm Monday 11th November 2019.

 

If you have any questions or queries regarding the opportunity, please feel free to contact Anaru Begbie either via email or mobile 027 403 6942.
