As Network Partner IMPAC is proud to provide a paid internship to one of NZISM’s Emerging Safety Leaders, to kickstart their Health and Safety career. From a number of keen applicants, we are delighted to announce the successful candidate for the IMPAC Internship is Nia Gendall of Wellington. 

The IMPAC Internship recognises Nia as an exceptional Emerging Safety Leader and is giving her the opportunity to gain 360° industry experience across IMPAC’s multiple health and safety products and solutions.

Currently studying in her final year at Victoria University, Nia demonstrated her focus and passion to build on her Master’s of Health in Workplace Health and Safety to really make a difference during, what she describes, as a period of great change in the industry.

IMPAC Director Gabby Aves says, “With her particular interest in mental health and wellbeing and as an active Student Wellbeing Awareness advocate, Nia clearly showed a passion for helping others and sharing her knowledge, traits we value at IMPAC and are essential in a future H&S leader.”

Nia is looking forward to applying the skills learnt through her studies to real workplace situations and learning from some of New Zealand’s leading H&S practitioners at IMPAC. She will join the Auckland office at the completion of her studies.

IMPAC would like to thank all the ESL members who took the time to apply. It’s positive to see such a strong interest in careers in the H&S industry and we look forward to helping newcomers to develop networks and skills with ESL in the future.
