Cadetship Opportunity

Cadetship Opportunity

In an exciting partnership with industry providers, Te Ātiawa has managed to set up a cadetship for its iwi members where you will receive hands on experience in a variety of aspects in both the Aquaculture and Fishing Industry.

This will be spread out over a 3-6-month time frame depending on both the applicant and the providers seasonal demands.

You will be exposed to mussel farming and processing, salmon farming, deep sea fishing, Paua fishing, as well as land-based activities in the mentioned fields.

All successful applicants will need to pass the industry providers drug and alcohol tests.

There is a weekly training allowance paid to each of the successful applicants, plus any out of pocket expenses.

At the conclusion of the cadetship training there will be an opportunity to further study where you can gain formal qualifications in the aquaculture and fishing industry through NMIT.

This formal training will be subsidised by Te Atiawa. To be successful you must be a registered member of Te Ātiawa ki te Tau Ihu o te Waka A Mauī Trust
