Seren is currently the Director of Recruitment and Alumni Leadership which oversees recruitment, selection and matriculation, the development of the organisation's Alumni platform and co-ordination of the Teach First NZ Leadership Development strand. After gaining a Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of Auckland, Seren began her Human Resources career in New Zealand at Firth Industries (Fletcher Building) and Starship Children's Hospital, before travelling to the United Kingdom where she joined Concert Communications (BT and AT&T) in a dedicated Graduate Programme Development role. Seren then joined the L'Oreal Group where she spent 10 years, working in the United Kingdom and Australia in Generalist HR Management, National Account Manager, Graduate Development and Talent Acquisition roles. Seren has significant experience setting up and managing graduate programmes, which have received awards from the AGR (Association of Graduate Recruiters - UK), the AAGE (Australian Association of Graduate Employers) and most recently the NZAGE (New Zealand Association of Graduate Employers) for best graduate diversity strategy awarded to Teach First NZ in 2014. Seren believes Teach First NZ is the most exciting initiative to launch in the graduate market as it provides participants with an opportunity to develop their leadership capabilities while being part of a powerful national movement to tackle educational inequality.
