Industry Internship Programme Overview

  • The Industry Internship Programme is an initiative from the NZ Music Commission to help emerging music professionals and recent tertiary graduates gain experience and kick-start their careers in the music sector.

    Interns are selected via an application process and offered a placement with a Host Organisation - a New Zealand music organisation or business that has applied to the Music Commission to host an Intern. Interns are mentored and develop skills, knowledge and industry networks during their placement, while the music organisations benefit from fresh thinking and additional resource.

    Running since 2018, the Industry Internship Programme has successfully placed Interns into a wide range of industry roles each year – including working in recording studios, assisting at events management companies and live music venues, working in PR and publishing companies, and more.
