BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

graduate profile Angelique Tizard

Certificate in Business Administration (Level 3) After completing a Certificate in Business Administration (Level 3) at Waiariki Institute of Technology, Angelique Tizard was employed by the same institute in various roles. Six years later, she felt the need to travel overseas to trace her Irish ancestry and was granted a six-month leave. She never guessed it would be 10 years before she returned to New Zealand. When Angelique boarded her flight in Auckland she had no idea how valuable her Waiariki qualification would prove to be in London. “I earned two pounds an hour more than the other temps because I used Teeline shorthand, an essential part of my Certificate in Business Administration (Level 3).” Angelique worked in the financial hub of London for eight years in human resources at an international asset management firm. “I loved my job and gained some invaluable experience from working at Gartmore. Eventually the pull of home became too great to resist,” Angelique explains. “London is, of course, amazing but I can’t say I’m missing my one-hour train journey to and from work. Rotorua is a beautiful place to live and I love my five-minute drive to work.” Just 10 months after returning from Europe, Angelique was promoted to team leader at Personnel Resources Temp Resources’ Rotorua office. “I absolutely love my job, there is a huge amount of client contact which is great and nothing beats finding your client the perfect person for their role. It is really satisfying meeting an outstanding candidate, then placing them in a great job!”


business administration Quality business administrators are vital to the efficient running of most businesses and as the reliance on technology continues to expand in offices, the role of the business administrator has evolved. Office automation and organisational restructuring have led business administrators to assume responsibilities once reserved for managerial staff. Many business administrators now provide training and orientation for new staff, conduct research on the internet, and operate and troubleshoot new office technologies. In spite of these changes, the core responsibilities for business administrators have remained much the same: performing and coordinating business administrator’s activities and storing, retrieving and integrating information for distribution to staff and clients.

BUSINESS MANAGEMENT

graduate profile Scott Green

New Zealand Diploma in Business (Level 6) Studying at Waiariki and training as an athlete with Waiariki Academy of Sport, Scott gets the best of both worlds. To top that off, his favourite training ground, Whakarewarewa Forest, is less than a 10-minute bike ride from Waiariki’s Mokoia Campus. “Born and bred here, I grew up riding in the Redwoods at Whakarewarewa. When I left school, I wanted to gain a business qualification, but equally I wanted to be a top mountain biker. Waiariki was the best option.” The academy aims to give talented athletes the chance to prioritise their sporting dreams while studying for a tertiary qualification. The athlete programme is modelled on the New Zealand Academy of Sport. Scott says this scenario is a great balance. He says support from Waiariki business lecturers and staff, as well as trainers and experts with the academy creates a seamless and exceptional one. “I started with them when I was still at [high] school and now I am studying business. Waiariki would be my major supporter. They supply me with the best testing, coaching, management – the list goes on. Whether it is training or business studies, when you are at Waiariki, anything that is done here is done to the highest standards.”
