Andrea – 027 450 2020

I am curently employed with the NZSA as the National Manager Training and Employment Services, where we are running a work broker programme in association with the Ministry of Social Development. This programme helps place employable beneficiaries into the security sector. I am loving the challenges and triumphs that this role has created and I am grateful to be in such a supportive work environment.

Prior to working with the NZSA I had been working in the finance industry for the best part of 10 years. I also hold a Bachelor of Commerce with a double major in Human Resource Management and Marketing.

I hope I get to meet a few more members that will join us on this great programme in association with MSD and thanks to those who are already on the journey with us.

If you would like to find our more about this great programme and what benefits your organisation could receive, please feel free to contact me: [email protected].
