WHO: Stephen Morriss
JOB: Territory Manager (graduate programme), Arnott’s New Zealand Limited, Newmarket, Auckland
Bachelor of Business (Marketing)
Previously also completed the New Zealand Diploma in Business.
CAREER HIGHLIGHTS: "In my role as Territory Manager for Arnott’s, I’m responsible for 14 stores on Auckland’s North Shore, and I also manage a team of five merchandisers who service these stores. I really love the variety of the work, and the fact that results manifest physically in terms of sales and shelf space."
"I’m particularly proud of driving my territory to the biggest percentage growth for the year. I enjoy working for a company that really cares for its staff. Working for a multi-national like Arnott’s, which is owned by Campbell’s Soup Company, also means that there are very real opportunities to work overseas in one of the many countries in the Campbell’s network."
BEST THINGS ABOUT UNITEC: "The Bachelor of Business prepared me well for my current job, and I now often find myself in situations that we covered during the lectures. I really enjoyed the relatively small class sizes, which allowed for engaging interaction with the lecturers who would often draw on their own experience in the business world. I also liked the wide open park-like spaces, and all the parties and events going on around campus. It was a chance to make friends with people from all over the world."
