Our Graduates typically start by the end of February. There is some flexibility on start date, and we can sometimes offer earlier start dates. We recommend that you join us before our induction event, which typically takes place in March.

We have 40 offices across New Zealand from Whangarei to Invercargill (and everywhere in between). We try to accommodate the preferences of individual applicants. However, because of the volume of graduate applications, it is not always possible to offer you your first choice. The more flexible you can be regarding location, the more opportunities will be open to you.

We offer a competitive salary, which varies slightly depending on academic qualifications and experience.

Yes, we encourage networking and relationship building through our induction event and throughout the Graduate Development Programme alongside our Graduate Committee.
