Analytics and Research in Government Graduate Programs & Internships

  • Government & Public Service

The ARG programme is a multi-agency initiative to build capability in data, analytics and research across Government.

These critical insights inform the way government makes decisions, from policy changes to operational and financial decisions – ARG is a crucial part of creating a better Aotearoa for all New Zealanders. To do this we need a wide range of perspectives working across government to ensure we’re doing the best for all New Zealanders.

We want you to experience life working in government and have the chance to apply the skills you’ve learned in university into real-world projects through our Internship Programme.
