He’s the go-to person for organisational communication related to our kaimahi.

Stephen will be working closely with Ngā Tumu, Kiriwhanake, and marketing and communications to keep kaimahi informed about what’s happening, and sharing success stories about the very positive work we’re involved with for our tauira and communities.

“Te Wānanga o Aotearoa and its staff are doing some really cool things on behalf of tauira and the wider motu,” said Stephen.

“It’s great to be part of spreading the word about that.”
