MPI – Graduate Development Programme

MPI – Graduate Development Programme

October 20, 2019 1 By Stanley Isaacs


You’re a well-rounded individual with more
than an impressive set of grades, right? At least that’s what your mum says.
And you want to be part of an organisation that’s working to Grow & Protect NZ…
Not a soulless corporation making money for someone overseas.
Can we say that? Yes, we can.
Because we’re MPI (Manatū Ahu Matua) Being part of our Graduate Development Programme
means you’re safeguarding our land, soil, and water You’re growing and protecting our taonga, as well as our industries. This stuff is super important – you aren’t just doing photocopying! When you become part of our grad programme, you’ll get to experience first-hand what a diverse organisation MPI is. During three 6-month rotations, you’ll get to move around the country choosing different areas of MPI – no matter what you specialised
in at uni. You could be running with the dog handlers,
working on important policies and Ministerials, out on the water protecting our fisheries
or in the regions as part of a response to a biosecurity threat.
By the time your 18 months is up, you’ll have a great perspective on the vital work
we do at MPI. You’ll also have built up a great network
and received heaps of mentoring and development along the way.
We invest in you. Why?
Because you’re one of us. You’re whānau. A job on the Grad Programme doesn’t stop
when your time’s up. It’s a real job, doing real work, making a real difference.
That’s why our grads are still with us after 5 years of running the programme.
And that’s why we were the winner of the 2017 NZAGE Best Graduate Development Programme.
It’s a grad programme where you get to grow while helping to grow and protect New Zealand.
