The Taxpayers’ Union is seeking student interns

A raft of Government reforms along with body elections have increased the Taxpayers’ Union’s workload – so we’re looking for new team members in our Wellington office.

We’re seeking part-time paid interns for positions in administration and research. These positions would suit Victoria University students with all-round skills and a keen interest in politics and campaigns.

Scepticism of big government is a plus, but we hire from across the political spectrum.

Your classmates and lecturers might not share the Taxpayers’ Union’s mission of lower taxes, less waste, more transparency – so a sense of humour and a thick skin is a must!

Hours are negotiable, and while we are not an accredited Living Wage Employer™ (we prefer not to pay accreditation fees to left-wing lobby groups), we do pay a living wage.

Previous Taxpayers’ Union interns have gone on to work in government departments including Treasury, DPMC, and DOC – as well as in the of the Opposition’s office and in private financial consultancies.
