I started looking after my parents, so I had passion to look after the elderly. Once Covid came, it was quite hard to find a job within rest homes in my area.
My name is Lance Corporal Hayden Holmes. I’m a soldier in the New Zealand army and I have spent the past 8 years in the Royal NZ Armoured Corps with Queen Alexandra's Mounted Rifles as a crewman. Most recently I have joined the Youth Development Unit.
I am a ECE Teacher at OurKids Glen Eden. I was motivated to become an ECE Teacher as I love children a lot and enjoy working with kids, teaching and looking after them.
I’m currently a Loss Prevention Officer at the Warehouse NZ. This is my second job, my first was with Red Badge Security.
I was doing online courses such as NZ certification in IT Essentials. These courses helped me find my passion for IT – understanding the back and front ends so to speak – hardware and applications. I really discovered how these systems impact us all in our daily lives and it was exciting to be part of this major industry. From my research I discovered that NZSE College was a Category One provider that really focuses on student success and after study career support. Their friendly team helped my build up my CV so that it was in-line with what prospective employers were looking for and how to tackle job interviews and reveal what I’d learned. I also gained skills in effective communication, problem solving through the InZone Project and trouble shooting.
