Want to join us?

The Weta Workshop family is made up of some of the most passionate, creative, tenacious and outright excellent people imaginable.

It's not easy to get a job here. We hand pick 5-10 new people every year and we already have thousands of portfolios to choose from.

Unless you have skills or experience that we cannot find in New Zealand, New Zealand immigration rules state you have to be a resident.

But if you possess the passion, tenacity and residence status to be considered, and have a skill we employ we do encourage you to follow your dream and apply.

Weta Workshop employs a wide range of skills in design and manufacturing:

  • Conceptual Designers

  • Model Makers

  • CNC Operators

  • 3D modellers

  • Costumers

  • Make-up Artists

Work Experience/Internships

Due to massive workload and strict confidentiality agreements with our clients, we don't have any kind of established internship or work experience programme.

We have such a wealth of young talented New Zealanders wishing to start a career in our field that we tend to contract these people straight away without the need for internships.

Step 4: Assessment 

We will let you know once we have determined if your skill set fits with our team and if we would consider hiring you.
