Northland MP Mike Sabin, went from suit and tie to flameproof safety overalls and hard hat when he spent the day with Top Energy as part of his MP on the Job programme. "There are times when a hard hat and safety gear might come in handy in the debating chamber but today it was all that stood between me and very hot water and steam that you could liter- ally cook an egg in," Mr Sabin says. Mr Sabin started the day working in Top Energy s PHONEplus call centre before heading to the Ngawha geothermal plant where he carried out routine maintenance before particip- ating in a meeting with the Northland Energy Forum. "I was given a quick induc- tion at the call centre and then launched straight into taking calls, which went sur- prisingly smoothly. Luckily for me though, I had the assistance of the very skilled staff at the call centre along- side me," Mr Sabin says. PHONEplus, part of the Top Energy family of retail businesses, employs about 45 staff across the Kaikohe and Auckland-based sites, servicing some 20 different customers, including com- panies such as Nature Bee, Chriscos, insurance pro- viders and telcos. The centre at Kaikohe works 24 hours, employing Kaikohe locals. They are the people who will take calls during power cuts and for the council, including during civil defence emergencies. "They are a very friendly, professional and efficient team and what impressed me even more was the fact that they felt that one of the best things about working there was their co-workers and the company." While he was at the geo- thermal plant Mr Sabin worked with staff to clean a brine strainer in the reinjec- tion line. This line carries water, which after going through the conversion plant reduces to about 95 degrees Celsius, to be re-injected into the ground to re-enter the geothermal field. Later in the afternoon Energy and Resources Min- ister Phil Heatley joined Mr Sabin at a meeting of the Northland Energy Forum at the site. The two Northland MPs were briefed on the potential of the geothermal plant, which already produces about 70 per cent of the power for the Far North. Those who would like to have the MP on the Job are asked to contact 04 817 8384 or email joanna.overall@ parliament.govt.nz A night of fine dining Le Gourmet experience: A small but strong team of year 13 Okaihau College hospitality students invited whanau and staff to their instant restaurant Le Gourmet. The classroom was converted into a glamorous space and featured appetisers on the table as guests arrived followed by a three-course buffet meal and coffee made by the newly qualified baristas. The evening concluded several weeks of work including the marae cook- off earlier in the year to gain three hospitality unit standards. Whanau and staff are extremely proud of the high standards that Jeanada Hadfield, Rosina Cowan, Helen Abraham, Harmony Johnson and Nicola Puata achieved. Fishing careers offered A new scholarship pro- gramme aims to encourage more Maori into the fishing industry. The Iwi Collective Part- nership and Sanford have joined forces to launch two initiatives. Step Up and Go Fishing and Work Over Summer are available to individuals who affiliate to one of the 12 iwi that make up the partner- ship. Three places are being offered this year with a com- bined value of more than $16,000. "We are looking for indi- viduals who like adventure, are team players and who aren t afraid of a bit of hard work, ICP manager Maru Samuels says. Successful scholarship applicants could find them- selves set up for life with a successful career . Two places are available on the Step Up and Go Fish- ing scholarship which includes two commercial fishing trips, a paid training programme and a job with Sanford upon completion. The Work Over Summer scholarship offers a single place with more of a land based-inshore fisheries focus, Mr Samuels says. The closing date for schol- arship applications is Octo- ber 19. Applicants need to be 18 or older and must affiliate to one of the following iwi: Ngati Porou, Te Arawa, Ngati Tuwharetoa, Ngai Te Rangi, Whakatohea, Ngati Awa, Ngati Ruanui, Te Rarawa, Nga Rauru Kiitahi, Ngaitai, Taranaki iwi and Ngati Manawa.
