Careerforce’s Ray Lind to Depart

Careerforce CEO, Ray Lind, has announced his resignation, and will finish up with the Industry Training Organisation on 2 November 2018.

Ray became CEO of Careerforce in May 2011, and has led the organisation through over seven years of significant growth, and poised for continued growth. Trainee numbers have grown substantially, from 2317 STM’s (standard training measures) in 2011, to a forecast 5400 STM’s for 2018, growth of 133% during Ray’s tenure. With forecast trainee volumes for 2018 of 20,392, Careerforce’s scale and growth reflects the increasing demands upon the health and wellbeing sector, and the critical role of Careerforce’s trainee audience in supporting New Zealand’s health strategy.

According to Ray, “It has been an honour to lead Careerforce these past seven years and to serve the tens of thousands of trainees who use our qualifications. I am grateful for what we have accomplished as a team on behalf of our learners and employers as we pursue the interests of New Zealand.”

Richard Westlake, Board Chair for Careerforce paid tribute to Ray. “Ray has been an exceptional leader, and pivotal to the growth Careerforce has experienced, and setting up the organisation for continued growth. He has an intimate understanding of the New Zealand health system, and Careerforce will sorely miss his extensive experience and strategic contributions, as indeed will the wider health and wellbeing sector.

The Board will soon begin the recruitment process for Ray’s replacement.

Careerforce is the Industry Training Organisation (ITO) for the health, mental health, youth work, disability, social services and cleaning sectors. Careerforce support employers across New Zealand’s health and wellbeing sectors to run workplace training programmes, allowing staff to achieve nationally recognised qualifications on and off the job. We are the Government appointed body that sets skill standards, develops and facilitates achievement of NZQA qualifications across all our sectors.

Scoop Review Of Books: Who Killed Jane?

This is an important book. Why? Because any publication that soberly and sensibly attempts to cast light on an unsolved murder is important, for the very real reasons that not only do the bereaved require and deserve a sense of closure, but that the murderer or murderers may be closer to being confirmed, arrested, tried.
