Driving Local Employment Recovery

At Hauraki District Council, we are doing everything we can to support community recovery after Covid 19 to improve community wellbeing and employment outcomes. A second successful application was made to Local Government and under the Mayors Taskforce for Jobs (MTFJ) programme we now have a great opportunity to continue driving local employment recovery. The priority target of MTFJ is young people not currently in employment, education or training and those out of work due to Covid 19. This is very welcome and we hope to continue seeing a downward trend in our unemployment figures.

We will continue to build on our engagement with employers to encourage the development of work opportunities for those currently unemployed. Job-seekers will be identified by reaching out to connect with the community and working in collaboration with the Ministry of Social Development. By matching job-seekers and employers, we will work toward sustainable employment outcomes which will have a positive effect on the whole district. The programme will also include other potential initiatives such as entry-level training, wage-based incentives, and support for businesses looking to take on staff. Set to run until 30 June 2022, we are looking for 50 sustainable employment placements.

We look forward to having both employers and job seekers join our journey.

Mayors Taskforce for Jobs

The Mayors Taskforce For Jobs (MTFJ) is a nationwide network of New Zealand’s Mayors, working together towards the vision of all young people under 25 being engaged in appropriate education, training, work or other positive activity in their communities. Find out more -

Local Brand

Following a lot of ideas and deliberation, our team have come up with our own local brand for the programme.

We will be known as Gr8 Job Hauraki-find your fit. Karawhiua Hauraki. Kei a koe te tikanga. This reflects something meaningful for both employers and employees.
