Kiri is another one of our fabulous #BuildAKL winners! Kiri is currently studying property at The University of Auckland, here's what she has to say about her upcoming placement with Downer NZ -
"They're a great company with a lot going on. I am interested in facility management, which is what I am hoping to get into. I actually went to the head office and I met HR, projects and infrastructure. It's really interesting. Great to see what they are doing as a company I have learnt a lot since I have spoken to them"
BuildAKL would like to wish all of the awesome #BuildAKL competition winners the very best of luck on the first day of their 4 week work experience!
