Programme overview.

Over three months you’ll work on a key project within the business which you’ll be responsible for delivering. We’ll also help you to develop your skill set through coaching and mentoring – as well as helping you build connections with different people at Fonterra.

Our Business Internship has the potential to be a direct route into our Graduate Programme so for that reason, we screen on the same skills and competencies as our graduate applicants. To be eligible, you must be in your second to last year of study and have a valid and current work visa. The programme generally commences mid to late November and is for 12 weeks with a small amount of time off for a Christmas holiday.

Meet our intern - Mariana.

Over the 12 weeks of the Fonterra Internship Programme I got to work with inspirational people with different skills and backgrounds. I got to shadow leaders across different business units and learn from their unique experiences.

During the intern group project, we created a product from scratch that has the potential to hit the supermarket shelf! As well as the group project, I was responsible for delivering projects in which I had full ownership of.

My learning curve over a short period of time was substantial, I learned how to deal with ambiguity and create value to my role at the co-operative. This internship has lead me to a Graduate role with Fonterra and overall it was an amazing kick-start to my career!
