Ehara taku toa i te takitahi, he toa takitini
Success is not individual, but collective

Applications are now open for our Associate Director and Associate Manager programme. This programme provides our Owners with the opportunity to gain experience in the governance and management of Wakatū.

As Wakatū grows and our organisation becomes more complex, it is vital that future Directors and Managers are equipped with the commercial and cultural skills and experience required to govern and manage our taonga.

The Associate Director programme has been running since 2000 and provides experience at the governance level of Wakatū and its businesses.

After a pilot programme where Turi McFarlane was our first Associate Manager, we have included an Associate Manager position in our programme.  Both the Associate Manager and Associate Director positions are for a two-year term.

The programme is designed to provide the experience required to govern or manage Wakatū and our different governance entities and businesses. 

The Associate Director position allows the successful applicant to gain experience at governance level, while the Associate Manager position will gain experience of working within Wakatū and its associated businesses at the management level.

Applicants must be Owners (shareholders, descendants of shareholders, or a member of a whānau trust holding Wakatū shares). Apply online. Applications close on Tuesday 31 July.
