Over the years Te Rūnanga has built a relationship with WSP through Te Ara o Te Ata. We’re excited to be partnering with them to offer a Ngāti Tama member, a permanent job and cadetship. WSP is a global professional services firm providing services in engineering, architecture, project management, planning property consultancy and materials research. Their culture is forward thinking and “inspired by diversity, driven by inclusion”.
The cadetship offers you on-the-job experience and supports you to gain a New Zealand Diploma (Level 6) in either civil engineering, surveying or another relevant area of study. A cadet role will lead into a career as a technician with multiple pathways to choose from, including draughting, surveying, contract management and more.
Each year you will receive a Study Award Grant to cover costs associated with course fees, materials, study leave, travel and accommodation. There is a period of bonding applied to our cadets.
Generally cadets should meet the following criteria:
There is some flexibility and the credits in maths are not essential if the study programme is not engineering or surveying.
You’ve got nothing to lose and so much to gain by taking up opportunity.
