Vanja keeping the boys in line

Vanja, a young mother of 4, was referred to Ara by Soloman Group where she was part of the Southern Initiative Trades Training programme. We connected her to an employer at Auckland Airport and she was offered a full time traffic management role - the exact job she was working towards getting. Here she is on the job directing traffic like a boss!

Success stories

Our goal is to help South Aucklanders into long term jobs at and around Auckland Airport. Ara is a joint initiative between the South Auckland community, government agencies, training providers and employers.

"I applied for 100 jobs in the space of 12 months. To meet the Ara team and get a job in three days is just amazing."
