Waikato-Tainui has a Careers Pathways team that work in partnership to discover opportunities to broker meaningful and sustainable employment opportunities for our tribal members.

We develop strong working relationships with key industry partners across a number of sectors to identify and create opportunities that will enhance and further our tribal members career aspirations and development.

Below are some of the offerings available for tribal members.

Whaia ko te Mana Motuhake
