Emerging Talent Network 

The Emerging Talent (ET) Network has been established by Infrastructure NZ to develop the next generation of infrastructure leaders. The ET Network facilitates cross-sector networking opportunities for young leaders under the age of 35, provides practical career development advice, and fosters a greater understanding of the wider infrastructure landscape. 

ET Network's objectives

  • Nurture emerging talent – Provide an opportunity for young infrastructure professionals under the age of 35 years to meet and learn from experienced practitioners and develop long standing professional networks across the infrastructure industry.
  • A forum for discussion – Encourage, and provide a forum for constructive discussion around infrastructure challenges facing New Zealand, as well as international trends emerging in infrastructure.
  • Shine a light on infrastructure – Provide young professionals both within and outside ETN an insight into the world of infrastructure, including the various professions involved, the type of work available, and job market characteristics.
  • A voice for young professionals in infrastructure – Provide a medium for young professionals within the organisation to articulate their thoughts on particular topics to the wider industry, under the auspices of Infrastructure NZ
  • Grow the network – Increase the number of young professionals within the infrastructure sector
