Transcript: Ivy Padila

 Hi I’m Ivy Padilla and I’m one of the Global Trainers here at NZTE.


What I love about the culture here at NZTE is its very diverse; one moment you’ll be talking to someone from Singapore and on the same conversation might be having someone from Hamburg. So the fact that it's very open, and that’s not a barrier, I find that very exciting.


Everyone around you, the colleagues, they support you in being able to act and take leadership and that’s something I really appreciate and value.


I’m involved with this big project wherein I get to contribute and deploy a learning management system for the whole organisation that we’ll be rolling out worldwide.


The thing that I’m most proud of at my role is being able to help our customers do their job efficiently, and better, and to be able to empathise with them and contribute to the success of the country. It makes me feel so proud that I’m working for a cause.

We're looking for smart people to work with smart export businesses
