Host Applications Are Open for the Industry Internship Programme 2021

November 16th 2020
Calling all prospective Internship Hosts for 2021 - applications are open now until 8 December.

The Music Commission is very pleased to open applications for the fourth intake of the Indusrty Internship Programme.  The Programme seeks to partner Interns with NZ music businesses and organisations to develop the skills, knowledge and networks for the Interns, and helping kick-start their careers in the music sector. Host music organisations benefit from the additional resource and low risk development of potential employees, alongside the fresh thinking that Interns bring.


Host Organisations from across New Zealand are encouraged to apply. Internships are available nationwide dependent on location of confirmed Host Organisations.


The Internships will run either part-time over an approximate 16-week period, or full-time over a 10-week period. All Interns will be paid the living wage for their internships and the Host Organisations will be expected to make a modest contribution towards the Intern’s wages.


The Music Commission invites Host music companies or organisations to apply from today until 5.00pm on Tuesday 8 December 2020.
