The Fiji Higher Education Commission (FHEC) yesterday received Linda Aumua who officially started as the new director. Ms Aumua replaces the FHEC inaugural director, Salote Rabuka who is retiring after 43 years of extensive civil service.

New Zealander, Ms Aumua was selected out of the top shortlisted candidates after the post was advertised both locally and abroad.

FHEC chairperson, Dr Milika Sobey said that the Commission was delighted to have Mrs Aumua agreeing to the appointment.

Dr Sobey commented that the new director brought with her a wealth of experience and skills that would only benefit the Commission.

Ms Aumua who has maternal links in Fiji commented that she was honoured to have been appointed the role and looks forward to give back to Fiji.

“I am passionate about higher education and have thirty years of work experience around that sector in New Zealand.

“I look forward to continue with the work that my predecessor had built and take the Commission to another level and move the sector forward,” remarked Ms Aumua.
