At Oxfam's Auckland office (and small satellite office in Wellington), volunteers, interns and staff work together to help communities overcome poverty and suffering, through the provision of direct, practical programme support and by advocating or campaigning for change to unjust policies and practices that keep people poor.
Internships are voluntary positions. They are often filled by students who are working toward or have just completed an academic course of study, and will usually have a specific focus, to complete a particular task(s) or project. This may involve research or report writing.
Interns provide invaluable support to Oxfam New Zealand staff and/or to our supporters. In return, internships offer individuals the opportunity to share skills and gain useful experience in one or more of the following areas - international development, programme management, fundraising, events management, direct marketing, communications, social media, PR, advocacy, policy/research and campaigning.
As an intern, your skills and experience will extend Oxfam's capacity to achieve our goals and we hope that you will gain both personal and job satisfaction from this partnership. Certainly there are opportunities for learning and skills development, to obtain advice on career development issues, to receive feedback on your performance, and to receive acknowledgment for your work with Oxfam New Zealand, including a formal reference if requested.
