Salesforce Bootcamp

Our Vision
Tē Tūruapō

This Pilot Programme is a collaboration with ecosystem partners and educational providers. We understand that our tech workforce comprises of only 4% Māori and 2.8% Pacific Peoples*. Technology is all encompassing in all aspects of our lives today, and it is important that our workforce represents our society.  By 2024, there are an estimated 26,000 jobs within the Salesforce ecosystem and we want to support Māori and Pacific into these in-demand roles. Each of these programmes are curriculum based and align to our values; tangata centric and designed to support you for success, developing your soft skills and teaching you the hard skills.

Past Intern’ Experience

“It is so empowering to be encouraged to find your mana and discover more about where you come from and how your culture makes you unique and special. I understood that I didn’t have to fit into some corporate mould — I could be authentic. I could be who I want to be and express that without worrying about judgement. I came to freshly appreciate what it means to be a Tuvaluan woman and how it’s reflected in my values and how I do things.”
