About 2degrees:

In 2009 2degrees was born and the Fight for Fair began when we switched on our mobile network, breaking up a duopoly. Charges for calling and texts halved overnight, a game-changer for all Kiwis and this became known as the “2degrees effect” across other industries in New Zealand.

Today we’re a growing team of challengers who want to make a difference. 2 million Kiwis use our services, powered by a team of 1700 employees, with 58 retail stores right across the country.

Right now, we're looking for degreed-up talent like you to join us. If you want to make a genuine impact for Kiwis and do something a bit different, then jump aboard and join us in our Fight for Fair!

2degrees graduate programme:

Because every team at 2degrees is different, our 18-month rotational programme will allow you to work across different subset teams to get a solid foundation in your area of specialisation.  

As a 2degrees graduate, you'll enjoy plenty of support and development opportunities including formal training, coaching, mentoring and a good dose of on-the-job learning. Our offer to you will be permanent, giving you the security you need now and into the future.

We have four areas we are recruiting into for our 2025 programme: 

  • Data Engineering
  • Software Engineering
  • Core Network Engineering
  • Customer Design

We focus on developing T-shaped Grads who build transferable skills across foundational experience, core capability development, project management, coaching and mentoring. You'll also build deep technical skill through the 3 rotations. 

And because everyone needs a friend, we will pair you up with a buddy. This will likely be a previous graduate - someone you can chat to about the new transition and all things 2degrees. 

You'll also have your very own accredited coach for the first 12 months of the programme, who will support your development, followed by a mentor in your field for the final 6 months of the programme. Exposure is key so we work hard to provide you with the opportunity to work on cross-functional projects, building relationships across the business. 

And it's not just you learning from us... we want to learn from you too!

Some of our benefits:

  • Learn about ways you can enhance your lifestyle with our amazing wellness and flexible working programmes
  • Get leading edge development and support with our development programme, starting with the skills you need in a corporate environment, ramping up to how you can bring out your best self and closing out with strategic and future thinking topics.
  • Stop paying for phone bills, medical insurance and fruit – we’ve got you covered!
  • Spend time during work giving back through our community volunteer programme “FairDays”
