Meet the graduate who ‘jumped’ into a job with AJ Hackett!

Posted on 31/01/2023 by

Fleur recently landed an incredible role in Queenstown.

If you spent some of your summer exploring New Zealand’s fantastic attractions, hiring rental cars, flying up and down the country, or staying in hotels, there’s a real chance you came across an ITC graduate at some stage.

Many of our wonderful graduates work in travel and tourism all over Aotearoa, including Fleur, who recently started an exciting role with AJ Hackett in Queenstown after studying at our Whangarei Campus. It was all thanks to her time at ITC, the work experience she did as part of her course, and her genuine hard work and passion for the industry.

We had a quick chat with Fleur to ask her for all the details about her time at ITC and her new job.

NZ tourism news

This week’s airline, travel and tourism news includes a fallout over budget cuts, changes to regional flight routes, funding for new attractions, and more.

TIA ‘dismayed’ by funding cuts

The latest New Zealand budget has just been announced, and it includes a cut to the funding for the Department of Conservation (DOC). In the last budget, just over $378 million was set aside for DOC expenditures, while the 2016/17 plan has dropped to almost $345 million.

The TIA is ‘dismayed’ by this move, which sees funding drop by almost 10 per cent. Chief Executive Chris Roberts is concerned about how these cuts might impact the tourism sector.

“DOC has two core functions. The first is protecting our natural heritage – our indigenous species and the habitats and ecosystems that support them. The second is facilitating recreation and tourism, so that New Zealanders and our visitors are enriched by outdoor experiences,” he explained.

Vaheana, our intern from French Polynesia, has been helping out the ITC marketing team over the past several weeks. She recently joined ITC tutor Mel on a short course and was given the opportunity to bungy jump off the Harbour Bridge – a true New Zealand tourism experience! Vaheana shares what happened on this exhilarating day out.

Thanks to Lesley and Mel, who kindly offered to take me on an ITC Adventure Tourism short course, I had the amazing opportunity to jump off the Harbour Bridge.

As soon as we arrived at AJ Hackett Bungy the friendly staff started to get us ready for the attraction. We had to wear a suit, a harness and of course a helmet. Once everyone was ready Sophie – our tour guide for the day – gave us a little bit of history about the Auckland Harbour Bridge. The Bridge was originally built in the 50s to link the North Shore to the Auckland CBD. Before that, people had to take a ferry to go to the North Shore.
