About our summer intern programme

Our summer intern programme gives you a fantastic opportunity to experience Transpower, while gaining some of the practical hours required to graduate.

It’s also the perfect first step toward becoming a part of our two-year graduate programme once you have completed your studies.

Every year we host around 25 summer interns. You’ll work closely with experienced engineers and buddy with a Transpower YoPro (young professional) to learn what it takes to have an engineering career in the electricity industry.

You'll work in teams across the business, and gain a broad knowledge of what we do, how we work, and who we work with. It’s an awesome experience that provides you with skills and capability to support your future career.
