With the rise in the scheduled events and programmes planned for 2019, the NZIOB National Office required some bolstering of capacity so as to effectively resource. The Institute is therefore delighted to announce the return of Hannah Keir-Smith from parental leave. Hannah takes up a new part-time role as the Institute’s Support Services Manager, working one day a week for the first quarter of the year, then two days a week from April. “While I have thoroughly enjoyed 2018 with my son and family” says Hannah, “I am looking forward to coming back to NZIOB and helping continue what has been a great few years for the Institute and the support it provides to the construction industry".
 
That Hannah’s parental leave replacement, Susan Duley, has agreed to stay on in the Operations Manager role, provides a great outcome for the NZIOB. The full National Office team can be viewed here.
