Meet Brooke Robinson: The high-flying graduate who recently landed a job with Air New Zealand

Posted on 21/01/2022 by

Brooke Robinson is a keen traveller and ITC graduate who recently got a job with Air New Zealand.

Brooke Robinson is one of ITC’s lovely Christchurch graduates who graduated in late 2019. She completed both her Level 3 and Level 4 Certificates with ITC and attained Distinction with both.

Not to mention, she was also awarded the academic excellence award and was one of the student representatives for her class during level 4 as well. 

Brooke grew up in a travel-loving household with both parents in the industry, and was always interested in following in their footsteps. After graduating ITC, she spent a year working in real estate, but always wanted to get back to tourism, so recently applied for a role with Air New Zealand – and landed it.

So of course, we interviewed Brooke to learn more about her new job. (more…)

Meet Kahurangi Bray: The ITC student working at one of New Zealand’s best (and most important) attractions

Posted on 15/12/2021 by

Kahurangi Bray has started working at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds as she finishes her studies with ITC.

Kahurangi Bray has been studying level 4 with ITC, but this summer, she had the opportunity to work at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds.

She hadn’t quite finished her level 4 studies, so she took ITC’s flexible study option and has moved to our online platform, Study From Home, to allow her to finish the course.

This meant that she got to kick off her career in tourism and travel as soon as the opportunity arose, while also completing her qualifications. Everyone at ITC is incredibly proud of Kahu, and excited to see her take this first step.

So of course, we got in touch for an interview! (more…)

New influx of jobs available in tourism and travel industry in New Zealand

Posted on 07/09/2021 by

Despite lockdowns, we’re still seeing plenty of new roles coming available in travel and tourism.

Lockdown has been tough on everyone, especially those in Auckland who remain in level 4. Yet this time around, the feel has been quite different, especially for businesses and employers in the travel and tourism industry.

Instead of hitting pause and wondering what happens next, many employers have been taking the pause to prepare for what happens next – lower levels, a mini post-lockdown boom, summer holidays, and hopefully, borders that start opening safely in the new year.

That’s why we’re seeing hiring continue and new jobs being advertised, even though travelling is limited right now. (more…)
