The NZAGE is the industry body educating and supporting organisations that currently recruit or develop New Zealand graduates (including interns, scholarships and cadets) and those who wish to do so in the future. 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 incorporated society. 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.
