Scholarships and Work Experience

 
Scholarship recipients and summer students are mentored by experienced engineers
RILEY annually looks to provide several undergraduate engineers with a unique work experience opportunity. We look for talented and enthusiastic students with a good work ethic and an interest in joining a specialist consultancy in either our Auckland or Christchurch offices.

As a summer student you can expect a variety of project involvement from fieldwork and logging to client liaison and report writing.  There will be plenty of opportunity to learn and practice new skills in the knowledge that you will be working alongside a helpful and experienced team.   In fact teamwork, and encouraging staff members to develop and apply their skills on a variety of interesting and challenging projects, is key to the success of the RILEY consultancy. 
 
Rather than working in a specific engineering field, students are encouraged to experience different engineering aspects as projects arise.

RILEY maintains a flexible and friendly work environment and is keen to promote social interaction, health and fitness, staff well-being, and a positive team spirit.

RILEY Scholarship

As part of our commitment to engineering excellence we annually award Engineering Scholarships for assistance with study to the value of $5,000 - one to a second year student for use in their third year, and two to third year students, for use in their fourth year of study.  Students are strongly encouraged to apply for these Scholarships as the recipients will generally be offered holiday employment which, in turn, often leads to permanent employment. 
 
The Scholarships are offered via Auckland University and the University of Canterbury.  Contact the relevant Scholarships Office for more information. The 2018 Auckland University Scholarships open on 20 July and close on 31 August; the Canterbury University Scholarship closes on 31 July
