Thank you for your interest in working at Weta Workshop!

Work Experience & Internships

Due to the many projects we have on, and the strict confidentiality agreements we have in place with the funding studios and clients, we are unable to accommodate extra people in the workshop. As a result we don't have any kind of established internship or work experience programme.

Work experience is uncommon in our company. We have such a wealth of young talented people wishing to start a career in this field with us that we tend to go straight out and contract these people.

Working in New Zealand?

New Zealand has very strict immigration and work-permit laws. We are respectful of these, but there are special cases where people from outside New Zealand join us to work.

Unfortunately, we are looking for a unique individual if we are looking outside New Zealand and it is therefore unlikely we will hire a young person with little experience as we understandably wish to share this work with the young people of our own country.
