COVID-19 Alert Level 1 Message
Knoware is committed to a unified response to fighting the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.
Under both Levels 1 and 2, the Knoware offices will remain open with appropriately applied social distancing restrictions and protective measures.
COVID-19 Message – Level 2
The New Zealand government has announced that from 8th September 2021, that parts of New Zealand including Wellington will step down to level 2.
Knoware’s Managing Director moves on; new CEO appointed
After almost 20 years at the helm Clare Somerville has decided it is time for a change and will be moving from Knoware.
Her last day as Managing Director at Knoware will be Thursday 30 April 2020.
In light of Government’s position on combating the COVID-19 outbreak, we made the decision to close the Knoware office from Monday 23 March and will be working remotely until further notice.
Our aim is for Knoware to continue to provide the best service we can, particularly across New Zealand government where we are already utilising our extensive hands-on experience and knowledge of data and systems in helping some agencies with COVID-19 related work.
We see ourselves as a logical extension of many analyst teams in the Wellington business community. The wider Knoware team of consultants are all set up to work remotely from home, and most clients are taking up this option especially where additional hands are required to assist in support activities. We do have some resource availability.
The Executive team are always available for you to contact. Details can be found here
We will be replacing face to face meetings with online technology. We’re utilising Microsoft Teams for this but happy to use other means if preferred.
Please be assured we will be here to provide whatever level of service we can for you.
Best wishes and stay safe.
