When you're out and about in Paeroa, the first thing you'll notice is an addition to the main street!
New Employment Hub at 30 Belmont Road, Paeroa
Gr8 Job Hauraki is now based at 30 Belmont Road, right opposite Council in a new space that creates a unique Employment Hub for job-seekers and local businesses! They'll be open from 9am - 4pm Monday to Thursday, and although their regular library sessions are now cancelled, they're still available for individual appointments in our Ngatea or Waihi offices/libraries, for people who can't make it to the Paeroa .
Check out their current list of opportunities! You may see something that suits someone you know.
Visitors to the Employment Hub will need to follow Covid-19 protocols depending on alert levels- sign/scan in and wear a mask indoors if required.
New office, new staff member too
Siobahn Soole (you'll remember Siobahn from the Paeroa Customer Service team) has joined Julie Stephenson and together they are raring to go with lots of new initiatives and support for locals looking for local jobs. Signage will go up soon and when the office is all kitted out in its full branding, there'll be an official opening of the space (we have to wait until we're back at Level 1 for that). The Employment Hub is made possible due to funding from the Ministry of Social Development through the Mayors Taskforce for Jobs programme.
Job and Career Market - 5 November 2021
One of the first events the team will coordinate is a Hauraki Job and Career Market on November 5 at the Paeroa War Memorial Hall from 9am – 3pm. Expressions of interest from businesses are welcome to Julie.Stephenson@hauraki-dc.govt.nz
Big goals? No worries!
Gr8 Job Hauraki's certainly going places and we wish them lots of success in their new premises. They smashed their first goal of 25 people into jobs by June 2021, so hold onto your hats for their next goal - 50 sustainable job/training placements by 30 June 2022.
