Tēnā koutou katoa
In 2015 I moved to New Zealand from Canada. Amazing beaches, a warmer climate and a sense of community are only a few of the things that helped me feel at home right away.
In 2016, I began working at Multicultural Whangarei. If you were to ask me why I love being a part of this organisation I would have to say:
He tāngata, He tāngata, He tāngata.
It is People, it is people, it is people.
I am the new face around Multicultural Whangārei. My name is Bridget Robertson and I am so excited to be given the opportunity to join the team at MCW as an Employment Consultant.
I was born here in beautiful Northland and after many years overseas, I returned home to Whangārei in 2015. Currently I am studying a Batchelor of Social Health and Wellbeing and am enjoying learning Te Reo Māori for the past year. I have had many years working in the employment industry, both here in Aotearoa New Zealand and overseas. If you are interested in having an employment chat or updating your skill base and Curriculum Vitae, please do not hesitate to either pop in and see me or make an appointment. I look forward to chatting with you.
My name is Nataly and I am from Uruguay.
I have been in New Zealand since September 2014 and had the pleasure to join Multicultural Whangarei as a volunteer at the end of 2017.
I am now part of the permanent staff and I am very excited to be Multicultural Whangarei’s Volunteer Coordinator.
My goal is to guide and help our volunteers to gain more skills and confidence in order to use their experience with us as a step to get a job, find a career path, grow their social network or simply have a wonderful experience.

I am grateful to be part of this organization and love to meet new people from different parts of the world. We offer a variety of social activities, workshops, classes and events and would be happy to see you attend one, two or all of them.
My hope in doing events is to reach out to more cultures in the community.
