Vivienne Euini, Branch Manager - ANZ

At ANZ, we see NZMA as a valued partner. Our experience of NZMA students is that they come to us with the skills, knowledge and the attitude they need to really succeed in the workplace. This is important to us because this is what we look for in all of our new staff.

Lochie Cameron, Rooms Division Manager - Stamford Plaza

Dionne has got SPARKLE! This is the terminology used by the General Manager of this hotel to describe his team, and SPARKLE is what you need to work and stand out at the Stamford Plaza! I knew right from the interview stage that Dionne had potential. His great personality stood out and it was evident he would be able to focus and deliver great service to his customers. After just two weeks of training Dionne has integrated really well with the team. There are great prospects for him to grow and progress further with us in a number of different areas within front-of-house.

Josh Coll, Staffing Manager - Eden Park Catering

NZMA students bring with them a real sense of passion and drive for hospitality and catering into the work place. They are an asset to our service. Our continued relationship with NZMA stands testament to the quality and standard of hospitality students engaged each year. This replicates into the directive of all the trainers, tutors and employment relations team that keep their finger on the pulse of industry trends and demands.
