Internship: Ziera Shoes

Ziera Shoes is looking for an AUT student to fill a 16 week paid internship. The work involves footwear research, trending and presentation boards for relevant stage gates, and additional involvement in working on redesigning Ziera’s prototyping space.

This is an amazing opportunity that arose from AUTs involvement with the 2015 Better By Design CEO Summit. Ziera is a premium shoe brand that emphasises comfort as well as style. Their vision is “to be loved by women internationally as a premium comfort brand”, and they “also know that comfort is not just about the function of the shoe. It’s how a woman feels being comfortable with who she is and the confidence that brings.” Check out their website here.

The skills Ziera is looking for are:

  • Illustrator
  • Photoshop
  • Rhino and 3D printing (preferred)
  • Good eye for colour, material and proportions
  • Strong systems thinking – creating order from chaos
  • Excellent verbal and written communication

The 16 week internship commences 1st June, involving 20 hours per week at $20 per hour. If this sounds like the position for you, then send an application letter along with your CV to by the 25th of May.
