Hauraki Job Market 23 Feb 2021Gr8 Job Hauraki ‘Job Market’ event

Our first Gr8 Job Hauraki Job Market aimed at connecting local employers with local job seekers was very successful. Giving job seekers the opportunity to connect face to face with employers is much easier in an environment like a job market than doing it on their own. It is a hands on, practical approach which is already showing significant outcomes. A number of the employers present have arranged for further site visits or interviews and there were many registrations of interest. It has definitely underlined that there is work out there for anyone who wants it.

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 successful application was made to Local Government and under the Mayors Taskforce for Jobs (MTFJ) programme we now have a great opportunity to drive 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 considering job-seeker numbers in our district are significantly up from this time last year. 

We have appointed a Community Employment Liaison officer who will engage with employers to encourage the development of work opportunities for those currently unemployed. Potential employees will be identified by reaching out to connect with the community and working in collaboration with the Ministry of Social Development. By matching potential employee and employer, 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 2021, we are looking for 25 sustainable employment placements.

We'll be looking forward to getting out and about in our community to identify both employers and employees to join our journey. We will have forms available soon to register your interest.

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.
