Hannah Sims

Business Administration Graduate

Programme attended: Business Administration and Technology (Level 3)

Hannah Sims is putting the technical and communications skills she learned at Tai Poutini Polytechnic into practice in a great job with a local accountancy firm.

“I was still at school when I heard about the Business Administration programme at a Careers Expo. I got talking with the team and I thought: this sounds like me.”

“It was a really good programme and I found it easy to learn. My tutor was really nice and the training was very structured, which worked well for me.

“Doing the study got me a foot in the door to a great job. I’m now working with Westland Accountancy and the training really helped set me up for success here. The technical skills I learned helped me get started, and the communications and customer service parts of the training have been very useful as I’m talking to our customers and helping them all the time.

“If you’re thinking about enrolling, I’d absolutely say: give it a go! It will help you get a job and it’s a qualification you’ll have all your life.”
