Are you an AUT student nearing graduation? Are you looking for a Cooperative Education role that is challenging, rewarding and exciting? Then consider an internship at The Warehouse Group! We pride ourselves on being a customer-led, frontline-focused and people-centred business.
The Warehouse Group is committed to changing the perception of Retail as a career and making it a desirable and rewarding career choice for New Zealanders. In 2014, The Warehouse Group partnered with Massey University to develop and launch The Bachelor of Retail and Business Management, New Zealand’s first degree focused exclusively on the retail sector. The degree was created in response to the increasing demand in New Zealand for skilled individuals in retail and business management. The course consists of retail-focused papers, covering a broad range of areas including retail buying and planning, merchandising, strategy and business planning and retail operations, both in a store and online context.
A lot of people say that landing a foot in your dream career is not about what you know but who you know. As a recent communications graduate, with very few connections, little real world experience, and a large student loan, you can imagine how little this comforted me!
After graduating I applied for jobs and internships almost everywhere, only to receive a lot of disappointing responses. Little did I know at the time, The Warehouse, my current employer, could offer me the chance to further my career in communications.
