  • Are you a big thinker who wants to make a real difference for New Zealand?
  • Looking to launch your finance career and become a qualified accountant?
  • Do you want to develop together with other graduates to build professional networks?
  • The Public Sector Finance Graduate Programme is an exciting development programme, led by the Department of Internal Affairs, for you to launch your finance future!

    Government agencies work hard to help Kiwis live their lives and working behind the scenes, to make it all happen, are finance teams.

    We're looking for graduates to fuel that mission and help make a difference.

    You'll spend three years developing your finance / accounting and leadership skills by gaining experience in rotations across different Government agencies, helping to provide trusted advice that makes a difference for all of New Zealand, from Parliament to individual Kiwis.

    We know what you study is often very different when you have to put it into practice, so you'll get to work across a range of finance / accounting functions to identify work that most interests you and be given the chance to step up to manage smaller projects of your own.

    Based in Wellington, we'll provide you with unique development opportunities as you study towards becoming a fully qualified accountant.

    You'll receive a highly competitive salary, professional membership fees, full program fees, paid study time and additional development workshops to help you succeed, all while working alongside passionate mentors who are leaders in public sector finance.

    We are looking for graduates who :

  • Are curious, eager to learn and think outside the box
  • Are self-motivated to succeed
  • Show leadership potential
  • Work well in a team
  • Are effective communicators and critical thinkers
  • Want to understand the 'why' and so what’ behind the numbers
  • Are networkers who can build strong working relationships
  • Are passionate about helping make New Zealand a better place
  • Applicant requirements :

  • Must meet the academic requirements to enter their professional accounting program of choice e.g. CA Program or CPA Program;
  • Be eligible to work in New Zealand for the full three years of the Programme (e.g. New Zealand / Australian citizen or permanent resident, or three-year post-study work visa);
  • Be available to commence employment in Wellington from January 2023.
  • We believe in a workplace culture that's supportive, collaborative, and innovative. We also believe in trying hard and having fun while knowing that what we do is for the good of New Zealand.

    If that sounds like you then we look forward to receiving your application!

    We are an equal opportunity employer that values diversity and inclusion. We recognize a diverse workforce contributes to better business outcomes.

    We are committed to creating a workplace where all employees have equal access.
