I know we're not there yet, but often employers start putting job specs out there a few months before they officially require them so thought I'd get a head start! We're arriving on 6 August and will be available for interviews as from the 9th August.

Me: Intermediate - Senior IT/Technical Business Analyst (4.5 years experience)
Looking for a position preferably in the investment/banking/financial industry as that it where my experience lies, but am very adaptable and open to other industries. My BA Experience covers many areas including end to end ownership of tasks in various large projects (full SDLC Agile and Waterfall methodology): scoping and documenting requirement specifications (including creation of test packs), QA, UAT support, post implementation support and training among others. Have previous experience as a developer so am very comfortable in a technical environment. Am currently in a team lead position so also have 1.5years in a management position. Happy to take contract or permanent positions.

Neil (DH): Qualified Secondary school teacher (English), however has experience in Primary schools and in remedial support. He has his Masters in Music Therapy and runs a private practice for individuals as well as doing group music therapy in special needs schools. Looking for a position preferably in a primary school or alternatively an academic support position, like he currently does.

We're looking for positions preferably in the Wellington or Christchurch regions, but we'll go where the jobs are!

Hi all

Intending to do a LSD later this year with my wife as we don't want to do the "cowboy" thing. We're just too cautious about landing in hot water with no job.

In the meantime, here are my "specs":

Currently employed as a Security, Health and Safety Officer


Security grades A, B, C, D, E (gained though Fidelity Security training)

Health and Safety - SAMTRAC (done through NOSA), SHEQ Integrated Auditor (done through AdvantageAct), ISO 9001 Senior Lead Auditor (SQMI training), 14001 Internal Auditor (KPMG) 

Employee Relations - Arbitration Skills (UCT Graduate School of Business),
Collaboration and Facilitation Skills (done through the Project Management Institute)

Any leads/advice that anyone has would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards
