Tertiary Careers Manager
Originally from the UK, Gareth spent 19 years in the hospitality industry – both here and overseas – before moving into industry recruitment three-and-a-half years ago. In Britain he specialised in privately owned boutique hotels, and when he moved to Auckland in 2004 he embraced the corporate hospitality sector.
Gareth joined NZMA in 2011 originally as an Internship Manager and was later appointed to head the team of NZMA’s employment service, NZMA Careers. A qualified HSI (Hospitality Standards Institute) trainer and assessor, Gareth’s passion for helping students and graduates into meaningful employment is his driving force.
With the acquisition of NZMA by ACG, Gareth has now been appointed Tertiary Careers Manager across ACG Tertiary & Careers Group. In this role he is responsible for overseeing his teams, driving success, building new relationships and forging work experience, internship and employment opportunities for students and graduates at NZMA, ACG Yoobee and NZCC.
“I like to think that I will be able to help people match the academic knowledge with the practical experience and develop their roles either into a full-time job they enjoy, or onto a career path they are passionate about.”
