“We are proud of being part of a progress company that values our people and their mindset’s. We are also proud to have an average employment term of 5½ years.” says David Law – Manager P&C.

David also said, “We’re committed to our people and as such identified the need for a Learning and Development Specialist”.

Christel Londt recently joined VINZ, as the Learning and Development Specialist. This new role will ensure existing staff and new recruits are up-skilled according to industry requirements, focusing on technical knowledge, career development, as well as, customer service.

With over 10 years + experience in the field, Christel has a passion for adult learning and individual growth. “Learning is everywhere, we just don’t always realize it.
