An update from Housing New Zealand for its head maintenance contractors and their subbies.
The latest edition of Contractor Connect celebrates the achievements and quality of work undertaken by our teams of contractors across the country. There is information on the outstanding efforts that shone through when our teams in Auckland banded together to respond to a very severe weather event in that city. In an exciting initiative, the first Hudson Sellars apprentice scholarship winner is announced while, in a similar vein, there is information on a Gateway Placement agreement with Hasting Boys High School and our head contractor for the East Coast-Hawkes bay area.
Further down the country, our contractors played a major part in a successful family fun day in Mosgiel. This edition further celebrates not just the work of our contractors but the extra effort they out into their communities.
