Group Manager Training and Development Appointed

New Zealand Group Holdings appoints Group Manager Training and Development

Auckland, 3 October, 2005. New Zealand Group Holdings Ltd, the holding company for New Zealand Crane Hire, New Zealand Access Hire and New Zealand Tower Cranes, has appointed Susan Hassan as Group Manager Training and Development.

Miss Hassan will be developing and implementing training and development programmes for the group’s 65 management and staff. The programmes will include staff inductions, health and safety training, computer courses and advanced national certificates for crane operators.

She said it was “no great shock” to join the male dominated crane industry as she was previously Group Training and Development Manager in Glasgow for Arnold Clark, the largest privately owned motor company in the United Kingdom with 8,000 employees.

“The New Zealand Group Holdings role is a new challenge. The role is diverse – and the company has the right cultural aspect for me because training and health and safety are company mantras.”

Miss Hassan holds a Bachelor of Education degree, a Bachelor of Arts in human resource management and a post-graduate certificate in learning and support. She was a member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development in the United Kingdom.
