  • Exceptional quality: We believe that we are the best at what we do. We remain agile and innovative to keep it that way. We will never compromise on this.
  • Creating Partnerships: Large consultancy expertise, small consultancy service. Our personal approach builds lasting relationships built on trust, honesty and mutual respect.

  • Genuine Sustainability: We are in a great position to influence sustainable development and enhance our environment. We understand our responsibilities. We put sustainability at the heart of all our activities.

Metis was founded in the UK in 2009 and recently extended operations to NZ in 2020. The Auckland based team is currently small with no permanent office (we operate using home working and shared workspaces in Newmarket or the CBD). This means you will be working directly with senior team members from the outset.

The Role

As an intern we will get you involved in project work from day one. No photocopying and making the tea! You will be supported to deliver meaningful tasks, get involved in client meetings and given focused training. We believe that getting stuck in is the best way to learn. Our current work areas include:

  • Project justifications / business cases for three waters infrastructure
  • Researching and developing new areas of water management policy for local government
  • Development and review of stormwater reticulation and quality improvement schemes

  • Sound technical ability
  • Flair for innovation and thinking differently
  • Space (and aptitude) to work at home, ability to work independently and be proactive
  • Excellent written and spoken English
  • Most importantly, the attitude to get stuck in and to get the most out of your internship

Salary / Package

You will be employed on a full-time fixed term contract for the summer period (approx. 12-15weeks or as mutually agreed) with the potential of converting this to a casual contract for ongoing, ad-hoc, term time work.
