Summer Internship programme

At PwC, the future of work looks a lot like you

A paid placement that runs from November through to February.

It’s the perfect way for you to get exposure to PwC through client work, thought leadership and all the technology that powers our teams. So if you want to join our human-led, tech powered community of solvers (and potentially secure yourself a graduate role) we’ll support you every step of the way. 

When you join us as an intern the opportunities are endless:

  • Welcome week - getting set up for success with a buddy to help you through

  • PwC business tools training

  • Dedicated coaching

  • Real work for clients 

  • A chance to present the Intern Summer Project to our CEO

  • Regular learning sessions over the summer 

  • Opportunity to develop a professional network


  • You’ll be a New Zealand or Australian citizen or resident; or a holder of a valid work visa allowing full time employment in New Zealand for the duration of the Summer Internship.
  • You’ll be studying towards a degree-level qualification (we’re pretty flexible on discipline, check out our business units for more information).
  • You'll have completed your first year of undergraduate study at the time of applying.
  • You'll be available for the duration of the Summer Internship - from November to February.





Applications for our Summer Internships are now open.


Can I apply for more than one role?
No need. Because you’ve done your research, you’ll apply for your first preference. In the application form we also ask you to let us know if you’d consider other areas, once you have filled that part out we'll take care of the rest.

What does the recruitment process involve? 
Our process has five steps - check them out here!

Do I need to do a PwC Summer Internship to secure a graduate role?
No, not at all! An internship is an awesome opportunity, but it's not necessary to secure a graduate role.

Where can I attend an event or speak to someone?
We'd love to connect with you! Stay updated by following our PwC Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn pages, as well as keeping an eye on your tertiary careers portal for any upcoming events or opportunities to speak with someone from our team.

Am I eligible to apply if I am an international student currently enrolled in a New Zealand tertiary institution?
Yes, we welcome applications from international students. However, you will need to meet the following criteria:

  • You must be able to work full time (37.5 hours) from mid November to early February.
  • You’ll need to provide a copy of your passport and visa/work permit during the application process.
  • We suggest you contact the New Zealand Immigration Department for more information about working in New Zealand.

What is the length of the Summer Internship?
Our Summer Internship is from November to February.

Do you have internships at other times of the year?
While we generally don't offer internships at other times, occasionally, specific roles may become available unexpectedly. We recommend keeping a close eye on this page for any opportunities that may come up.

What are my career opportunities?

We encourage you to engage in annual goal-setting and regular career discussions with your performance manager. These conversations provide a platform for you to express your passions and interests, guiding your professional development journey.

How many roles are available?
