Ka Hao te Rangatahi Cadetship

Moana New Zealand and the ICP have teamed up to develop a new fish filleting cadetship programme called, ‘Ka Hao te Rangatahi’.

Ka Hao te Rangatahi will provide opportunities for school leavers to learn the art of fish filleting and cutting skills at Moana New Zealand’s state of the art fish processing plant in Mount Wellington, Auckland.

“Fish filleting is a specialist skill in high demand. It pays well and comes in handy at home as well as the Marae,” says Ray Kearns, Factory Manager at Moana New Zealand.

The Cadetship will involved paid mahi (work) for 2 people (cadets) over a 13 week period at the end of which they will be assessed for offers of full-time employment with Moana New Zealand.

“We aren’t looking for the highest qualified people but we are looking for people who love fish and have a positive attitude to learn”, says Maru Samuels, General Manager for the Iwi Collective Partnership.

“Its about opening doors and encouraging our people to consider a career in kaimoana (fisheries).”

Applicants must whakapapa to one of the 15 Iwi Members of the Iwi Collective Partnership.
