Global Talent Internship (GTI) Programme

In its Short-term Employment Forecasts: 2017-2020 – May 2017, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) forecast that employment in New Zealand would grow by 152,000 jobs over the next 3 years with 43 percent of that growth occurring in the Auckland region. 23,000 of those jobs will be in business services and the strongest demand will be for highly skilled workers particularly business and system analysts, programmers, ICT managers and legal professionals.

About the GTI Programme

The Superdiversity Institute for Law, Policy and Business (SDI), in partnership with Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) has launched a unique programme offering businesses an opportunity to place high-skilled international student graduates who have a degree within their businesses.

The GTI Programme can help businesses gain valuable insights into export markets, which are the home country of the international students. GTI can help businesses/ organisations innovate, adapt and access new markets.

Understanding the key demand and skill shortage industries, the Superdiversity Institute (SDI) will facilitate entry of 25 high-skilled international student graduates within NZ businesses. Businesses will be able to choose graduates from a pool of successful applicants for placement.

SDI will run an induction for successful GTI programme applicants on how to work in the New Zealand business environment
