The University of Auckland
January 2013 - Present (5 years)
I have worked and been involved with a number of different bodies - Pasifika Clothing (Sales support) - Tuhi Tuhi Communications Takoa (New Zealand Directory of Māori Organisations) as admin support and marketing - JMIS LIMITED as an Administrator (2015-2016) JMIS Ltd is an investment management service that offers investment solutions to clients of Authorised Financial Advisers associated with Sovereign and Select Wealth Management.
Finally, over my five year journey through undergraduate and post-graduate studies I involved myself in services that have supported all Maori students, catering specifically to their educational, cultural and socio-political needs. My most prominent influence to Māori students can be seen in my involvement in Ngā Tauira Māori – that is the University’s Māori Students’ Association. Within this framework, I had the privilege of standing as an executive member for two consecutive years [2014-2015]; firstly as Sectary and thereafter as President also as Vice-president of AUSA – Auckland University Students Association. In both positions I was responsible for managing not only the executive body but wider student body while too engaging with staff across the university. Furthermore oversaw funds of up to $110, 000 that would be allocated towards key events and initiatives.
