As National Volunteer Week, and our Volunteer Excellence Awards, approach - there is the usual excitement building in our office. But this year there is also another dynamic happening, the preparation for a significant change - the 'changing of the guard' at Volunteering Waikato.
For the past couple of weeks I have been working half time for Volunteering Waikato and half time in my new role as National Operations Manager for Here to help u - and I will move there fulltime following the awards. I have been with Volunteering Waikato for more than 15 years, and I am proud of what I have achieved in that time. I am sad to be leaving my awesome team, but also excited about my new role.
Bringing in a new General Manager is a huge opportunity for Volunteering Waikato to take it's next step forward, and that is exciting. The board are currently working through their process of recruitment, and the role will be advertised in due course.
I know I will continue to see many of you, I shall just be wearing a different hat!!
