interaction with clients . Customer Service skills essential
Upskilling opportunities huge.

Workplace culture fresh ideas and new skills introduced were welcomed by most but however some staff were unhappy with any changes and preferred that things stay the same

I learnt that growth teamwork good communication are all important

Administrator Coordinator (Current Employee) - Waitoa
I enjoy working with a supportive team. People are pleasant and everyone works together cohesively as a unit. I have been given the chance to learn new skills and maximise the ones I already have.

The Manager has confidence in my abilities and I can achieve any task that is either big or small. If I am not sure how to tackle it I get advice from the subject matter experts and proceed accordingly.


I am efficient and organised.
Pros
Great team and great job.
Cons
Travelling to Waitoa from Hamilton
