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!

Roy’s background and expertise includes being Managing Director of his Leadership Development Training Company, Director and Trustee of several Investment and Land Trusts, a previous International Manager of a large language school and Manager of Te Aka Umanga ki Waitaha, (the Canterbury Maori Business Network). However, his greatest passion and background has been developing Rakatahi and Pakeke with vocational direction, work preparation, post placement employment support and it’s in this arena that he can add real value to any of his Pūreirei clients that he will be working with in the future.

Kezia Bava

Karaka mai manu Titi
Taki mai manu Weka
Tū teitei
Mauka Aoraki, Mauka Atua
Rere atu te wai ō Waitaki
Ki ruka i te Mania Pakihi Whakatekateka ō Waitaha
Tū mai, Kāi tahu
Ko Kezia Bava āhau.

Kia ora,
Connecting with people and celebrating their successes is a passion of mine. I have a desire to help and to motivate people. I believe that with the right groundwork and support, everyone has the capability to create the pathway they desire.

My background is in tourism and customer service as well as facilitating roles. I lean strongly on my Kāi Tahutaka and taha Māori and I am excited to connect people with our iwi.
If you are ready to take the next step in building your ideal future, register your interest online or send me an email, I look forward to doing the mahi with you.

Aoraki Matatū!

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.
