Congratulations to our Inaugural Scholarship Winner – Joanna Saba from Festival Hire

It is with great pleasure that HIANZ announces its first recipient of the inaugural Personal Development Scholarship. Joanna Saba of Festival Hire in Masterton has been awarded the scholarship to support her through a NZ Certificate in Digital Marketing. The knowledge and skills learned will be applied into Festival Hire to assist in the promotion of the business and services offered.

This is a great example of HIANZ partnering up with a member company and developing their people.  CEO, Rodney Grant said ” There is a lot of satisfaction in helping people develop personally and it’s great to be able to help member companies attract, grow and retain good people.”

Along with the scholarship award, Joanna is provided with free full registration to HIRECON24 including accommodation, Joanna will present to members and share with us her journey, talking about working at Festival Hire and her process of applying and winning the HIANZ Scholarship Program for 2023, all in the interests of the growing value for this award.
