Welcome to The Kumara Vine

Welcome to te aka kumara.

The purpose of this site is to celebrate Maori and Pasifika success through the stories of people achieving in their jobs and/or recognised by their communities.  The Kumara Vine also promotes those organisations proactively seeking to employ, contract and support our whanau and pasifika friends.

Please research the site and if interested in progressing your career or marketing your contracting or consulting services join our talent pool JobCafe.

Show your support by subscribing to the Kumara Vine network and receiving our monthly newsletter.
