Business Development & Initiatives Manager, Auckland South & Asian Banking,
ANZ New Zealand
Rajmita Chand has come a long way since moving to New Zealand with her husband at age 19.
A Fijian-born Indian, Rajmita’s first job on arrival was as a part-time teller with ANZ. Today, she’s responsible for building ANZ’s brand in the key Auckland South and Asian markets.
Her success has been recognised by winning ANZ’s National Leadership Award for four consecutive years, including a CEO Recognition Award.
Influence in community
In her current role, Rajmita works with ANZ’s retail and business banking leaders to achieve ANZ’s mission of ‘helping people and communities thrive.’
“ANZ has a big influence in our communities and I’m proud to be a part of that,” says Rajmita.
“In my two decades with ANZ, I have worked with many female leaders who have been stellar role models and my biggest inspiration. I have also been able to take my two children along on my journey, thanks to ANZ’s generous parental leave and flexible working policies.
“I have had a lot of help and support in my career,” says Rajmita, “but I also believe very strongly that no-one can help you until you help yourself.
“My advice is simple. Believe in your abilities. Empower the women around you. Seek out opportunities and don’t be afraid to take them. And most importantly – Dream Big!”
