Louis

Tradestaff Recruitment Resourcer – Ex New Zealand Defence Force

Louis understands from his own experience that it can be one of the hardest decisions to leave the defence force and transition back into civilian life. For some, the thought of what to do for work can seem daunting.  Having made this decision himself, Louis Wihongi is motivated to help others that are going through this same process.

Once a candidate has made the decision to leave the military, Louis will support them through everything they need to find work that best suits their skills, experience, location and a role they will enjoy doing. For some this may mean they are unsure exactly what that looks like and Tradestaff can provide them with a variety of work options to help them decide which career path they wish to go down. For others they may know exactly what it is they want to do but may need some help with unpacking their defence force skills and training into language that employers will resonate with. For some they may want a completely different career and Louis can work with them to identify what retraining options they may need. For example: it could be getting them through a fork hoist licence or getting them into a carpentry apprenticeship.

Every candidate’s journey is different, and Louis will work with them every step of the way to ensure they settle into work that provides them with a rewarding work future outside of the defence force.
