My name is Jakson, I’m a NZ Permanent Resident originally from Brazil and I have achieved a Level 5 Diploma in Management and finished my Level 6 Diploma in Business with NZIE, too!
Through ‘Think Recruit’, NZIE found me an 8 week internship at WESTPAC BANK! It was an excellent way to get experience and a very great opportunity to be there and to see how NZ banking operates. Also to have such a well known name in my CV is really helpful.
I will be looking for an opportunity like this full time when I have finished my studies because I have this experience from Brazil. Before this Sue (the Think Recruit Recruitment Advisor) got me work experience at TAKAPUNA BEACH BUSINESS ASSOCIATION for one month where I was able to attend meetings with the General Manager.
I am very thankful to the Recruitment Advisor at NZIE for getting me these opportunities! This was an excellent ‘opening of the door’ for my future because it has built up my CV here and given me great local references.”
UPDATE: One week later Jakson was offered employment at WESTPAC.
Westpac Group has branches and controlled entities throughout Australia, New Zealand and the near Pacific region and maintains offices in key financial centres around the world including London, New York, Hong Kong and Singapore
