Make way for publishing students

Whitireia publishing programme

Gecko Press is a strong supporter of the Whitireia publishing programme. Every year we employ a part-time student to help in the office, and offer work placements to students on the course.

We try to offer a range of publishing activity depending on what is going on at that moment – such as international rights, digital marketing, event preparation, and publicity.
