Lisa Bishop

People & Business Operations Manager

Kaiwhakahaere Pūmanawa me te Pakihi

Lisa is a key part of Wellington UniVentures' leadership team, responsible for ensuring excellence in delivery of day-to-day operations across the people and culture, health and safety, financial management and communications functions. 

Lisa provides proactive solutions for a broad scope of HR related activities, ensuring that our people have the support and processes in place to focus on their role, while creating a culture that prioritises our people's career growth. 

Lisa has had a storied career, beginning as an Interior Designer in the construction industry in the UK. A shift across the world to Aotearoa coincided with a shift in career, leading her to roles in Business Management and Human Resources. Lisa spent 14 years at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington, initially as a Project Manager in the Property Department on the Hub and Library development projects, and more recently in the University's HR team as a Organisational Development Senior Advisor, and HR Manager for Science, Engineering, Architecture and Design. The strong relationships she built across the University serve her well in this role. 

In her spare time, Lisa enjoys connecting and socialising with friends, and sampling the variety of food and beverages Wellington has on offer. As an active relaxer, Lisa will often spend weekends in the garden or ticking jobs off her ever growing DIY list (she's known as "Bob the Builder" around her home!).
