About Mileta Seniroqa

Mrs Mileta Seniroqa has been with the National Fire Authority of Fiji since 2007 when she joined the Authority as its Corporate Affairs Officer to strengthen the area of Corporate Communications in the Authority and establish the Media unit. She is a self-motivated team leader with strong management and corporate communications skills, along with more than 20 years of experience in senior management level. She is a strong communicator who interacts respectfully and effectively with individuals across the spectrum of social and economic backgrounds and cultures. In 2008, she was assigned by the National Fire Authority of Fiji, together with two other female colleagues, on a study tour of the Country Fire Authority of Victoria, Australia where she observed the various activities, disciplines and standards maintained in the field of Fire and Emergency Services. This invaluable exposure strengthened her knowledge in Fire and Emergency Management, enabling her to contribute effectively to the strategic planning, management and reforms that were implemented to enable the economic growth and expansion of the National Fire Authority of Fiji’s service delivery to the community. In 2018, she was selected by PIEMA to join two other female counterparts from Samoa and Vanuatu on a short study tour of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade and other emergency agencies in Melbourne. This invaluable exposure provided her with a clearer perspective on the vast opportunities available as well as the benefits and advantages of increasing women participation in the Fire and Emergency industry – in all aspects relating to emergency operations, training, compliance, administration, strategic planning and even senior management level. Mrs Mileta Seniroqa is the National Fire Authority of Fiji’s Manager Human Resources and Corporate Affairs, a position that she has held since 2013 todate and she has seen the growth of the Authority from 372 personnel in 2013 to 652 by the end of 2019 and the increase of fire stations around Fiji from 15 in 2013 to 20 by the end of 2019. She has also had the unique privilege of holding the position of interim Chief Executive Officer for the National Fire Authority of Fiji for an initial period of 18 months from December 2016 to May 2018 and again in March 2019 to date (July 2019), awaiting the appointment of a new CEO for the Authority. She is a Post Graduate in Human Resource Management with the University of the South Pacific in Suva, Fiji and she is married to a Lawyer.
