“During the last three years, we have introduced several innovations that support our vision of digital literacy for all New Zealanders. Our operations have expanded and become more complex through the addition of an Automatic Payment scheme for internet connections, the ICDL digital literacy programme, and a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) pilot initiative” said Laurence Millar, Chair of the Trust.  “I am hopeful that the government will fully understand the importance of digital literacy to our future and expand the Computers in Homes programme in the upcoming budget.  We need to think about the future.”

The new role has been established for three main purposes:  to prepare for further expansion of the Trust’s digital literacy programmes, to provide a point of accountability for interaction with the Board of Trustees, and to strengthen “corporate” functions of Finance, HR, IT, Risk and Communications.

The job was advertised last week, and applications close on 30 November. People interested in the role should contact Powerhouse People in the first instance. ( www.ppl.co.nz vacancy 16762)
