Department of Internal Affairs

Mālō e Lelei,

I am a Site Delegate based in Auckland for the Department of Internal Affairs.

I am a full-time Customer Services Office for Services Delivery & Operations at the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA). I have been part of the DIA family for 4 years now and during those four years I’ve been a PSA member for 4 years and a Site Delegate for 3 years. I am also currently the National Pasefika Enterprise Delegate a role that I have held for almost a year now,  and recently have been confirmed as the Cluster 1 Rep for DIA and I sit on the Public Sector Committee. As interesting as it gets I have also been selected to join our Public Service Pay Equity Bargaining Team to achieve Pay Equity for PSA members doing Administration, and Clerical including Contact Centres and Customer Service, and it does not stop there as I am also a part of the PSA Women's Network Committee- Auckland Region Rep.  I am one of the leads for the Engagement Working Party for PSA Pasefika Network and now newly elected as PSA Pasefika Komiti Secretary. I feel very privileged to be holding all these roles and to be the representative for all of our Women, Pasefika People and especially the PSA Members under my cluster.

I am passionate about supporting diversity and inclusion within my own workplace to ensure equal opportunities are given to all members. I truly believe that our members should be valued; paid fairly; be provided with career opportunities where possible; and be treated with respect and kindness as we are all worth 100%.

I am often described as a social butterfly, easy to get along with and have the biggest heart when it comes to advocating for all members but I am just me.
