The New Zealand Association of Graduate Employers Incorporated (NZAGE) is a national not-for-profit body established 2011 to develop and improve the graduate recruitment industry in New Zealand.
The NZAGE is the industry body educating, and supporting organisations that currently or wish to recruit or develop New Zealand graduates. The NZAGE is supported by a broad range of organisations, including large and small employers across many industries in both the private and public sectors. The NZAGE also seeks to consult with related associations including careers advisory services; non profit bodies and entities which offer services in connection with graduate recruitment and development.
The NZAGE is a not-for-profit body. It does not receive government funding; rather its activities are entirely supported by funds raised by way of annual subscriptions, event fees and services provided to the graduate recruitment industry.
The Association is led by a dedicated committee of volunteers who donate their time to help manage our member offering. All our committee volunteers have 'day jobs' as graduate recruitment leaders at one of the NZAGE's member organisations. We believe that this structure gives the NZAGE a unique ability to provide New Zealand graduates, our members and the wider industry with valuable and relevant services.
