We are passionate about supporting and developing local talent, and this summer we were delighted to have two interns join us to gain practical experience in their areas of study.
Antonia McDermid, a final year marketing and communications student at Auckland University of Technology, joined the Customer Experience Team for the summer. Antonia has got stuck into working on an exciting new customer transaction portal which will make it easier and more seamless for customers to get things done, as well as planning the for the Dargaville Fieldays. Antonia says the experience has been invaluable because she is gaining first-hand experience in her field of study.
Joseph Hill is about to start his third year at Canterbury University where he is studying towards an electrical engineering degree. He spent the summer in our Engineering team working on various projects, including the installation of a new off grid power system on Matakohe Limestone Island. Joseph says he has enjoyed the problem solving and getting first-hand experience in the electricity sector and it has given him renewed drive as he heads back to university.
