Since coming home to Hawke’s Bay Jonathan has worked as a contractor for a number of organisations including the Crown Forestry Rental Trust, Otago University, the Ministry of Primary Industries and Te Taura Whiri I Te Reo Māori. His extensive mahi experience has required him to deal with a wide range of issues facing iwi and hapū.
