Zoe Port BBS (Hons), AFHEA

Deputy Director of the Bachelor of Business

Massey Business School - Deputy PVC's Office

Research Officer

School of Management

Having previously held a number of roles in the field of human resources, I chose to return to postgraduate study with a particular goal of conducting research that would contribute to making New Zealand workplaces safer. I was fortunate to be welcomed into the Healthy Work Group in Massey's School of Management. I have recently completed my PhD (under examination), exploring the heterogeneity of multiple job holders in New Zealand.

I am currently the Deputy Programme Director for the Bachelor of Business (BBus) - Massey's largest degree programme and flagship business qualification. In this role I am privileged to help oversee the BBus, ensuring a thriving qualification and high quality student experience. This role provides a rewarding opportunity to interact with Massey's future business graduates, and I enjoy bringing to the role my own recent experience as a business graduate working in industry.

Alongside this, I have been involved in a number of other research and consulting projects and with my Healthy Work Group colleagues, primarily focusing on the are aof psychosocial risk. I have presented much of this research overseas, including at the International Labout Organisation (ILO) headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

I also strive to remain constantly engaged with the union movement, given my strong research and personal interest in employment relations. At present I have the privilege of serving young workers as both a Co-convenor of Stand Up - the youth network of the Council of Trade Unions - as well as the youth representative on the Tertiary Education Union (TEU) council (the governing body of the TEU). I am passionate about advocating for young workers who, far too often, are marginalised and subject to disadvantage in the workplace - particularly being in precarious employment that limits their ability to speak up.

I am the Deputy Programme Director for the Bachelor of Business, and also hold the role of Research Officer on the externally-funded Healthy Work Project, which seeks to develop, implement and test interventions to reduce exposure to work-related psychosocial hazards in small and medium-sized organisations. I have recently submitted my PhD (under examination), which is focused on exploring the heterogeneity and experiences of those who hold multiple jobs.
