Global Talent

The HOST Global Talent internship programme is a New Zealand-based initiative that aims to open employment opportunities and reduce barriers for tertiary-qualified refugee background candidates.

HOST Global Talent also works with businesses to match companies with skilled and talented former refugees who bring their global market experience and add cultural diversity to their team as a short-term volunteer intern. By hosting a HOST Global Talent intern, an organisation will provide the intern with an opportunity to work in a kiwi workplace and help build their networks in New Zealand.

In return, organisations will gain multilingual and committed interns eager to gain hands-on, local work experience. Providing internships can open up exposure to new markets, diversify customer bases and explore the feasibility of new products and services.
