Waikato District Council Cadetships
Waikato District Council has partnered with Wintec to create employment opportunities for civil engineering students and develop highly-skilled and well-rounded staff members.
The cadetship scheme is open to Wintec students studying the civil elements of the New Zealand Diploma in Engineering and the Bachelor of Engineering Technology courses.
Under the scheme, students will work and study part-time for two years before completing one year of bonded employment with Waikato District Council.
Successful cadets will be placed in various teams within Council including roading, waters, parks and facilities, land development, and programme delivery.
As well as gaining practical civil engineering operational experience, they will learn skills in project management, managing budgets, ethics and contract management.
Cadets will also be supported by mentors throughout the programme.
Waikato District Council will be paying successful applicants a salary during the cadetships, as well as funding course fees.
Applications close Monday, 21 August 2017.
