MARIA SOMERS - WAIKATO - [email protected]
I've just moved from Auckland to Gordonton and would love to find a role where I can utilise my experience as a senior EA/Business support in the equine sector.  I'd consider roles
around Hamilton/Cambridge.  I'm not sure what roles are available in the industry at the moment but I figure nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Please have a look through my CV and let me know what you think, is there something out there for someone like me, I have loved horses my whole life and never quite stepped away.

I'm still a very confident rider, so would be happy to jump back into riding trackwork - although would need to get fitter as it's been a while.  A role with some flexibility will be required as I'll have to do the school run, so if someone needed and admin support person, who also could help out with educating youngsters, or ride the last couple in a morning that might work.

Happy to chat on 021 241 5555 if you know of anything going or coming up that might be suitable.
