Pūreirei Mentors

Harrison Hunt

Ko Aoraki te maunga,
Ko Waiwhakaheketupapaku te awa,
Ko Aoraki te waka,
Ko Ngāti Moki, ko Ngāi Te Ruahikihiki oku hapu,
Ko Ngāi Tahu te iwi

I am pleased to have the opportunity to be part of the Pureirei mentoring team and work alongside whānau to create, grow and initiate individual future career aspirations.Being a part of this kaupapa is not only an honour, but a privilege to offer our services as proud Ngāi Tahu whānau, for Ngāi Tahu whānau.

Bringing to the role 8 years’ experience working with Rangatahi Māori, my mahi has seen me specialising in pre-employment training programmes doubled with offering inclusive pastoral care and support. In addition to Te Pou here I am a Trustee and senior leader with Noaia Charitable Trust focusing on placing Māori and Pasifika into employment and education.

I am excited about connecting up and working alongside you as you develop both your individual and whānau economic potential. Let’s get started and crack into this mahi!

Ko Te Kohurau te mauka
Ko Kakaunui te awa
Ko Uruao te waka
Ko Moeraki tōku tūrangawaewae
Ko Stacey Gullen-Reynolds tōku ingoa

Naia te reo owha e karaka ana ki kā mauka whakahi o Kai Tahu,

For the past several years I have worked in the careers sector, from working one-on-one with whānau to support them achieve their career aspirations to developing and implementing career education programmes across the motu. It is a privilege to use the skills I have acquired during this time, working directly with our own Kai Tahu whānui to support them on their own career journey. If you just want to kōrero to learn more about what a Pūreirei mentor can do to support you or you whānau, please contact me.

Kayne Osborne

I joined the Pūreirei mentor programme, so I can share my knowledge, learnings and skills with those looking to expand their career aspirations, undertake an education pathway or just seek clarity towards their journey within education or employment.

I have 15 years’ experience working in recruitment and the vocational pathways across multiple industries and sectors, across Australia and New Zealand.

If you are wanting help with your journey towards education and employment fill in the enrolment profile and I will be in touch to help you take that next step.
