Check out what former AUT Co-Op students have to say about completing an internship at TWG:


Gabrielle Wymer – Assistant Planner (Kids Footwear)

“Some of the most valuable experience I gained during my placement was not just putting theories into practice but also learning how to interact in the work environment and be part of a team. I found this is a skill that can’t be learnt from a textbook but one which can only be done in practice.”

Will Costello – Marketing Communication Specialist

“The Warehouse gave me an in-depth understanding of how to manage stakeholders, develop my project management skills and provide me with a level of flexibility that I may not have been able to acquire from a smaller company.”
