Cameron Nepe

The forestry industry has been good to EIT Tairawhiti tutor Cameron Nepe.

“It’s a good option for people to take,” he says. “It’s a full time job, not seasonal, and offers great career pathways that allow people to go into anything from machine operation, to crew management, and supervisory roles in crews.”

Cameron Nepe, who joined EIT Tairawhiti early in 2012 and holds a degree in iwi environmental management and a diploma in forest management, also works alongside the forestry industry training organisation FITEC.
