Recent Graduates Seeking Entry Level Position



  • Name: Johanna Schacht
    Location: Auckland
    Field of Interest: Community and Environmental Planning, Transport, Resource Consents etc. I’m interested in any field of planning.
    Availability: Available to start as part-time immediately, and as full-time from November 2018 on.

    By having lived in Europe as well as New Zealand I have developed a deep passion for the urban environment and what elements create successful, high quality spaces. Studying urban planning for 4 years has allowed me to deepen such passion and develop extensive knowledge and the necessary skills to work in this field. One of my key qualities is efficiency, which allows me to complete tasks as quick as possible and to the best of my ability. Adding to this, is my enthusiasm, and friendly personality which makes me a pleasant co-worker, team member, and an approachable person when interacting with people I have not met before. I have gained this in particular through my work experience in the local community sector, where I worked closely with community members with the aim to improve their central community hub.
