The NZ Music Commission has just announced the launch of its pilot Industry Internship Programme for 2018, which will run from March next year.
The programme is looking to partner eight young people (aged 18 - 24) and eight NZ music businesses together with the intent to add value to one another, and develop the knowledge, networks and career potential for the interns.
Internships will be available nationwide, wherever it's possible to match a potential intern with an appropriate host music business or organisation.
The Internships will run for 55 days either part-time over an 18 week period or full-time over an 11 week period. Thanks to the generous support of Creative New Zealand for this pilot scheme, all interns will be paid for their internships (in accordance with living wage recommendations). The host companies will be expected to make a modest contribution towards the intern's wages.
The New Zealand Music Commission will be inviting both potential interns and host music companies or organisations to apply from the 20 January 2018. The application form will be available on our website from that date, and applications will be open for one month.
