Terms and Conditions – Industry Ready Student Registration 


Completing the IR Student Registration process is an acknowledgment that you have read and agree to abide by the following: 


  1. I am eligible as a student candidate for Industry Ready services, including professional training and development workshops and may lead to full-time, part-time or occasional job opportunities because I have a student ID for 2022 from a New Zealand tertiary institution. 
  2. I am eligible as a student candidate for jobs and internships provided by IR because I have a current student ID from an NZ tertiary institution. I finished studying at a New Zealand tertiary institution less than 12 months ago, and I hold a valid visa that allows me to work in New Zealand. 
  3. I am legally able to work in NZ. 
  4. I agree to abide by the IR Code of Conduct for events. 
  5. As much as possible, I will participate in the IR workshops and programmes to get upskilled on professional and technical topics. 
  6. I understand that if I register for events but fail to attend, this may result in me being banned from future event attendance. If my plans change and I am unable to participate in an event I registered for, I will log in and withdraw my registration within 2 hours of the event start time. If an emergency arises and I’m unable to cancel my registration, I will contact the IR team to let them know about my event no-show as soon as possible. 
  7. I will complete my profile, including uploading accurate Information to the IR website, including my CV/portfolio, skills matrix, academic results (screenshot is ok), and cover letter. 
  8. I understand that Industry Ready respects the privacy of my personal information. I understand that Employers in the programmes I have opted into will be able to see the Information on my profile (except for the statistical, demographic Information about gender & ethnicity, which is just for IR anonymous reporting purposes). 
  9. I declare that all the Information in my CV and portfolio is my own Intellectual Property and that it is true, accurate, and not commercially sensitive. 
  10. I will participate in the recruitment process by expressing an interest in projects on the IR website and attending the Meet and Greet session(s). I will make myself available and attend physical or record video interviews if I am selected. 
  11. If I receive an offer, I understand that the terms of employment are to be negotiated between my employer and me and that the IR team are available to support the process. 
  12. I understand and agree that having a completed profile on the IR website means I am available for IR roles. If my availability changes, I will immediately withdraw from all IR programmes. 
  13. I understand that it is HIGHLY unprofessional to withdraw from the IR Internship programme between Meet & Greet and Offers Day because employers will be investing enormous resources, time & energy in the shortlisting & interview process. If I am shortlisted after Meet & Greet, I will do everything in my power to remain available between then and Offers Day. 
  14. Throughout my participation period will be a professional employee and ambassador for the IR programme. 
  15. I acknowledge that the IR media team may video or photograph participants at events. My attendance may be documented and shared via online media channels (including the IR website, Twitter and Facebook pages, and Youtube). As such, I hereby agree to relinquish any reasonable expectation of privacy and understand that the use of my image does not violate any right of privacy, law, regulation or agreement. Moreover, I hereby grant permission to IR to use or authorise others to use any photographs, motion picture, image, recording, or any other record of my participation in activities during the IR programmes and events. 
  16. If I have any questions or require clarification on any of the above Terms & Conditions, I will contact the IR Team
