Melissa Jenkins - Marketing Manager
Mel has worked for ITC since 2012 and is known in Secondary Schools in New Zealand for the delivery of our very popular Short Courses. After taking tourism at Manurewa High School she realised it was her dream to work in the Airline industry. After working part time at Woolworths Supermarket and studying the International Certificate in Tourism & Travel she gained her dream job with Air New Zealand which became her employer for the next 10 years.
When Mel joined the ITC team she soon became known for partaking in some incredible adrenaline filled activities. If it wasn’t jumping off the Harbour Bridge Bungy on ITC’s Adventure Short Course or out of a plane at 16,500 ft it was running the worlds highest marathon from Everest Base Camp in Nepal.
Mel’s role at ITC developed over time from Short Course Tutor, Tourism Education Team Leader to our Domestic Marketing Manager. The passion she has for the industry and experience in education has lead to many opportunities for our students. “I’m always willing to take on a challenge or adventure. You can’t possibly make diamonds without a little pressure” say’s Mel.
